Simple as breathing

Thank you for visiting Pierini Fitness this past 2015 calendar year.  This chief executive blogger has tried his best to deliver original middle-aged man reflections about living and dying, gracefully aging and trying to live a good and honest life.

Some of my 140 reflections this year may have been duds or sleepers to you but hopefully others have given you some tasty food for thought, making you think about who you are and who you want to be.  If this has been your case at least once, then in some small way my mission has been accomplished.  If it happened more than once, that’s all the better and hopefully, God willing, more will be served to you this upcoming 2016 year.

You see, in the mind of this chief executive blogger, at this point in our lives our pursuits should be driven by goodness which means different things to different people.  We’ve all had our opportunities to be the center of our attention, the wise-guy, the punk, to be self-absorbed with ourselves, and to dance to the tune of a song named “Me Me Me”.

At this chapter in our middle-aged man lives, we should all be dancing to the tune of a different drummer; one that is upbeat and outward for the goodness of others rather inward-driven and for our own selfish pleasure. 

Under the law of abundance, reciprocal good will come to us from our efforts of doing good directed towards others because good is infinitely abundant.  Think of our benevolence as a calm pond on a bright sunny day.  When we look at it, we see a mirror image of ourselves that is so calm and surreal, a goodness that is ours to cherish and enjoy.

At this point in our middle-aged man lives, we should have figured it out about how to do this right. 

For us, living a good and honest life for us should be as simple as breathing.

Pax Domini sit semper vobiscum
