The thing about focusing on fitness as a goal, is that you’ll never be satisfied. No matter how fit you become, you’ll never feel like you’re fit enough. And as you age, it will become more and more of a losing battle.
That’s why fitness goals should be about general health and well-being, rather than about self-image, competition, or achieving goals. Who you’re becoming on the inside is what matters most.
With spiritual growth, there’s no regression with age. It’s better to double down on your spiritual growth than to go to the extremes of physical fitness.
The body can only take you so far. The mind and the spirit will have to take you the rest of the way.
