If you don’t write consistently your writing muscle will atrophy. I’m having a hard time getting back into writing. But you have to write about the things you think about. Here’s a copy of pg 95 from the daily stoic, and a few thoughts that have been coming up for me.

Wealth and freedom are free

Freedom isn’t secured by filling up on your heart’s desire but by removing your desire. - epictetus

There are two ways to be to be wealthy -- to get everything you want or to want everything you have.

Which is easier right here and right now?

The same goes for freedom. If you chafe and fight and struggle for more, you will never be free.

If you could find and focus on the pockets of freedom you already have?

Well, then you’d be free right here, right now. Pg. 95 the daily stoic.

I notice how simple people are. How small the things we want for are. A cup of coffee. Walking the dog. A meal that other people think is too simple but you really enjoy. I go back to my loops. To live simply is the only way.

Why endure things we don’t want to do? To be able to do more of the things we want. But what if you sacrificed the small things that matter, to get to an end and missed the middle?

To live simply is the only way.
