The Daily Stoic for December 27th, “Don’t Let Your Soul Go First”.

“It’s a disgrace in this life when the soul surrenders first while the body refuses to.”

—MARCUS AURELIUS, MEDITATIONS, 6.29

Do you run? If you do, you probably know that the mind -especially at the beginning- is weaker than the body. When you are running, it gets to a point, sooner or later, when you start feeling tired and your mind begs you to stop

Don’t Let Your Soul Go First

It’s not your body talking there, it’s your mind -call it soul if you like, and excuse my atheism. The body can actually keep on running. In fact, running is nothing more than training your mind regularly to fight that resistance, allowing you to make more distance every day.

The last four months of 2018 have been though for me. I’ve spent them among hospitals, clinics, and doctors. Not the best period of my life.

So I have to agree with today’s daily stoic meditation. I am still alive, and if my body hasn’t surrendered, I shouldn’t let my soul either. There’s a lot I want to live, experience and share. 

I am spending the next months between Thailand and Indonesia. It’s quite exciting for me, and I have left the stress, medical problems and issues of the last months deprive me of the excitement of Asia. Not anymore.

Conclusion

Today’s Daily Stoic, “Don’t Let Your Soul Go First”, contains quite a solid piece of advice. While we are alive, while we can still enjoy what’s around us, we should do just that. Don’t let your soul go first. Fight.

After some years managing my business, I know the tricks of the trade. I can offer you advice on how to become location independent, found an European company you can manage online while traveling, and avoid unnecessary costs. If you are ready to take the leap, but have some doubts or don't know where to start, let's get in touch.
