book club journaling marcus aurelius stoicism Jan 31, 2021

Are you taking time to reflect on each day to celebrate, evaluate, and iterate? That's the focus of Week 29's lesson from A Handbook for New Stoics.

The concept of journaling is not new to the Stoics. In fact, Marcus Aurelius, one of the most famous of the bunch, had a whole book created from his daily Meditations.

The idea of an Evening Meditation or Reflection is simply to examine your day - how you showed up, what stumbles you may have encountered, and MOST IMPORTANTLY in what ways can you improve or adjust for the future.

 

 

This is - at its core - ensuring you continue (or begin) to live an Intentional Life. Evaluating whether you've veered off-course or are remaining on your purposeful path...and practicing a little forgiveness when you do stumble.

What Questions will (or do) you use to examine your day? Let us know on our Facebook or YouTube page!
