STOIC AMOR FATI PREMIUM SILVER KEY-RING
Amor Fati is one of Stoicism’s most well-known and universally applicable teachings. Literally meaning “Love Your Fate”, Amor Fati is a powerful reminder that we are always at the mercy of life and all of its contents. We can either fight with life or come to accept, embrace and with a bit of practice, even ‘love’ all aspects of it.
Whether you experience heartbreak, untimely death, a pandemic, job lay-offs, a surprise promotion, the birth of a child or deep-rooted happiness where time seems to stand still, you can learn to love it all. This is the dance of life. This is the yin and the yang. We can’t appreciate the good without the bad, and vice-versa.
The challenge that Amor Fati presents us is to love life and all of its contents. It’s not to teach you to be a helpless bystander in your life, but to allow you to own and thrive in whatever circumstances that life throws at you.
Front of the key-ring: Features a minimalistic design that clearly displays the important message of ‘Amor Fati’. The fire at the centre of the piece is a visual representation of the message, taken from Marcus Aurelius’s famous line: “A blazing fire makes flame and brightness out of everything that is thrown into it”.
Back of the key-ring: Features a love heart, a simple but prominent reminder to love whatever life brings you. The ‘A’ and ‘F’ represents ‘Amor Fati’.
The Amor Fati double-sided coin is made of solid brass and has then been silver plated by hand. The chain is sterling silver and is sturdy.
The whole key-ring is designed to be resilient and resistant in your pocket while maintaining its elegant and bright colour.
