Daily Journey – December 24th – Meaningless… Like a Fine Wine

There are so many things in life that we consume and in turn they consume us. What are we really doing with these things? We let them take so much control over us. We want more and so we work to get more, and more, and more…
 
What we really need to be happy is often right in front of us. Look around you, see those kids you are raising, that wife you commited your life to, those friends you should reach out to… go spend your time with them. The happiness on the other side will last way longer than that expensive bottle of wine (that is unless you want to enjoy a bottle of wine with me).

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!
