reading Tending the Epicurean Garden - a book on Epicureanism
Epicureanism is a school of thought contemporary to Stoicism
the founder Epicurus is dope trust me
there was a bit in the book about how it's healthier to have satiable desires rather than insatiable desires
satiable desires = easily quenched. e.g. if you're thirsty or hungry, you can drink water or eat and you're satiated.
by contrast, if you're after clout or money, even if you get some, you just want more. you're insatiable.
it's worth thinking about what desires you have are satiable vs. insatiable. i'm hoping to take a mindset towards hobbies, work, relationships that's like, i drank my fill today and i'm good. as opposed to wanting more and more.
He who is not satisfied with a little, is satisfied with nothing.
