Daily Journey – August 28th: The Opulent Stoic

The pursuit of happiness is not the same as the pursuit of wealth. You can be rich and miserable, and you can be poor and at peace.

Money is not directly proportional to happiness… but our view of wealth, and luxury can be.
 
Want to build a treasure trove of happiness and contentment? Sever you perceived ties between spending and happiness.

Daily Journey is a collection of my thoughts from reading The Daily Stoic: 366 Meditations on Wisdom, Perseverance, and the Art of Living.  My objective is to gain greater control of my emotional responses by reading and sharing my thoughts on stoicism with you all everyday over the course of a next year.  If you would like to explore these topics with me, and others who are seeking to gain emotional control I these articles to the Mastery of Skill closed facebook group and would love for you to join in on the conversation.

Live Skillfully!
