When I get there

This chief executive blogger of Pierini Fitness is recovering from a hangover of sorts after celebrating two milestones on Monday, the 9th anniversary of the “birth” of Pierini Fitness, and it’s 1,000th blogflection post.

God willing, Pierini Fitness will turn the big 10 next year around this time.

It was a pleasant reminder that with all milestones and ambitious goals we pursue, it’s only natural to have a “what’s next” mindset after the big day finally arrives.

I once read a book written by a man sharing his karate training journey while living in Japan and training at the Japan Karate Association (JKA) headquarters’ dojo in Tokyo.  I don’t remember his exact words when sharing a question, he asked himself, of what he was going to do once he received his shodan (first degree black belt.) 

Continue training was his answer.

Isn’t this also true with all that of value we pursue? 

There’s really no gold at the end of our rainbow because the end is never reached.  The closer we get to it, the closer we only get to it, this end of the fitness, fame, fortune and health rainbow we chase in our middle-aged man life journeys.

So, this chief executive blogger will continue doing what he enjoys here at Pierini Fitness, sharing his middle-aged man reflections about living and dying, gracefully-aging and trying my best to live a good and honest life.

This is what I’m going to do when I get there.

Pax Domini sit semper vobiscum
