How to be a stoic (in 5 steps)

Thank you so much for reading this, the first blog post that I've written on this page.

I hope you're going to love it.

The idea that I want to talk about today is Stoicism. Stoicism is a philosophy that came to me at the right time in my life. It was a time when I was living in Tacoma, Washington. I was in a studio apartment paying $550 a month for rent. I was pretty fat, at 6'1 240 lbs. I was depressed. I was anxious. I was working a job which brought in maybe $1,500 a month after taxes, and the commute back and forth to work, the gas money ..and bridge toll took up $200 and 20 hours of my time alone each month.
