Writing about things, looking at them, and thinking about how they affect my life, and the lives of others. Then looking for ways to make life better, both for myself, and for other people too, these are important things in my life.
Stoicism has helped me to work on this, my life has become one of considered action, more than it may have been in the past, to some extent anyway. I have written about some of this in another of my blogs, my biggest one, here, which is my blog about my writing life.
Writing helps me to think more deeply about ‘things’, and by thinking more deeply, making better decisions. Life can be a crazy roller coaster life, if you let things get out of hand, but if you keep a firm hand on the reins, you can stop things from getting out of control.
Stoicism helps, writing helps, family and friends help, working for the betterment of my community helps. The life of a Stoic can be a combination of these things, all working for Good.
I feel no need for God in my life, as long as I pay heed to Good, things go well. Others feel differently, and that is fine, we all have our own ways, and as long as all realise those differences, and don’t get in each others way, life can continue, religious, secular, something in between. Stoicism can be a thread that ties it all together!
