The stoic philosophy. The philosophy of just being a good person. The perfect philosophy to control yourself and only yourself. Works by stoics include "Meditations" by Marcus Aurelius, "The Daily Stoic" "The Obstacle is the Way" "Ego is the Enemy" by Ryan Holiday, and "Letters from a Stoic" by Seneca. These are all necessary reads for anyone practicing the ancient philosophy of Stoicism. I recommend any and everyone to look deeper into these Works. Some modern-day Stoics include: Nelson Mandela, Gary Vanerchuck, Ryan Holiday, Teddy Roosevelt, Martin Luther King, Malcom Little, Winston Churchill, and many many more. Study and practice. That's how you can get your life, mind, and soul under control.
I’m about to start reading this new book by Elan Mastai. It’s sounds like it has a really great premise and has a little bit of science fiction sprinkled into the story and it sounds right up my alley! Basically the premise of the book is that this guy is living in the year 2016, but in a version of reality where technology has solved all of humanity’s problems-no war, no poverty, no problems of any kind. Unfortunately in this utopian present day he isn’t happy and decided to take a time machine back in time, but instead finds himself stranded in an alternate reality, which in the book as our present day. He’s initially desperate to fix his mistake and go home, until he discovers wonderfully unexpected versions of his family, his career, and the woman who might be the love of his life. In the book he must decide whether to go back to his perfect but loveless life, or stay in our messy reality with a soulmate by his side. His search for the answer takes him across continents and timelines to figure out who he really is and what his future and our future is supposed to be. Anyway, the book sounds like an optimistic and uplifting look at life and love and I can’t wait to start reading this!! 😄 #Books #Reading #Optimistic #Positivity #PositiveVibes
