About the blog
Hello there! Welcome to Stoic Journey: a blog about discovering the ancient philosophy of Stoicism and implementing it into modern life. The Stoics aimed for a happy and meaningful life, or eudaimonia (which literally means: a good spirit). They believed that we can achieve this by focusing on what is in our control and accepting what is not in our control. And this, in turn, can be achieved by using our capacity for reason. Reason, happiness and meaning are therefore inherently linked in the Stoic philosophy. Is this still true today? What does it take to be happy and live a flourishing life? These questions are central on this blog. So do you want to walk in the footsteps of the Epictetus, Seneca and Marcus Aurelius? Do you want start or continue your own Stoic Journey. Then stay tuned!
