What to expect

Welcome to SirChutney.UK

In some ways this is a self-indulgent blog. It’s full of things which I’m doing or thinking about which are important to my happiness on a personal level. These are things which are necessary for me to make sense of life and to enjoy it even more. But I’m sure that you’ll find that you can apply some of my ideas in your life too. If you can, great.

Posting frequency is at least weekly. Most posts are around 500 words long. One exception are the longer form articles can be found under the stoicism tag.

I got interesting in stoicism as I realised that I had fewer years ahead of me that behind me. This forced me to reflect on the meaning in my life. I started to question, just what matters. What can I do to make my remaining time on planet Earth the happiest possible? How best to come to terms with “me”? I needed to understand more about myself. I also realised that a large body of work could help. After a few years of reading and reflection I found Stoic philosophy to make most sense. These posts are about my attempts to use this ancient wisdom in a practical way.
