I really like this post on A Stoic Response to Bad News, but just wanted to call out the philosophy of “amor fati”… which if truth be told I could stand to implement more often. Anyway, what does “amor fati” mean?
- Love your fate
- With it you feel that everything happens for a purpose, and that it is up to you to make this purpose something positive and active.
- Do not seek for things to happen the way you want them to; rather, wish that what happens happen the way it happens: then you will be happy.
- Treating each and every moment—no matter how challenging—as something to be embraced, not avoided. To not only be okay with it, but love it and be better for it.
