#stoicism

One of my favorite things are the meals my Grandma Nancy cooks. She loves to cook for the whole family and everything she makes is outstanding! After lunch we were looking at old photo albums of the family and she shared a book her cousins put together about about their grandfather Mathias Hofferle. Mathias came to #america from #austria with nothing more than a whole bunch of work ethic and a certificate saying he was a master carpenter in Austria. He eventually had his own architecture firm and did a lot of interesting things. This quote was in that book my Grandma got out and I had to save it. The man was a #stoic in his own time and definitely set a high standard for his family to live up to! #challengeaccepted #family #stoicism #longestpostever

Sometimes I look up into the clear skies at night and I’m reminded of how incredible it is to simply exist, especially as a conscious being who can reflect on what it means to live in an infinite and intelligent universe such as ours.
-
There’s so much intelligence inherent within the universe - everything from the grass growing to the planets orbiting is an act of immense intelligence - the same intelligence that beats our heart and breathes our lungs.
-
When you learn to notice this intelligence in everything in your daily life, you begin to experience a sense of awe, wonder and even blissfulness that is lasting!

I was supposed to squat today, but something about a cold front + a bullet in my leg makes me not wanna destroy my quads 🙃
.
I don't recommend getting shot, it can be a drag at times
.
Trying to do more volume for my arms. I'd rather do heavy compounds but I'm just not getting enough activation outta them. Plus I have semi-chronic tendonitis in my elbows so I tend to avoid a lot of direct arm work

But fuck it man. Can't get the ladies without the gunz

This is my "single and no I'm not ready to mingle" mustache. It works pretty damn well

Day 6 of work this week. Another 24 hours off then beginning my hitch again 😥

One of the main reasons I give all my energy to whatever I'm doing is because I want to be the one telling my story!! So whatever you do grind hard and give it your all and if you fail "and you probably will" get up and grind some more!! #dailyquote #quoteoftheday #wisewords #wordsofwisdom #selfhelp #selfimprovement #socialadvice #socialanxiety #physicalfitness #physicaltraining #physicalculture #bushido #samurai #individualism #quotes #selfimprovement #becomebetter #stoic #stoicism

From entrepreneurship to stoicism. Not much of a change of topics. Via @epmc2 👌💪😡

Epictetus was right when he said that “life is hard, brutal, punishing, narrow, and confining, a deadly business.” We should take whatever help we can get, and it just so happens that sometimes that help can come from ourselves.

The Hero’s Journey.
Saturday the 20/1/2018 , I took this painting into Southampton today , to Southampton City Gallery, for the 2018 open exhibition competition . The competition is open to anyone in Dorset , Wiltshire, Hampshire or the Isle of Wight . The subject for the competition was the four seasons, I chose to paint The Hero’s Journey , a paint based on Joseph Campbell’s book by the same name . It took about three months to complete from conception and I got it to Southampton with an hour to spare 😅👍😉. To win would be great , if I loose I will learn , but validation would be having it on the wall with individuals questioning their personal Hero’s/Heroine’s Journey . Thank You 😉
