Rock-hard determination! peter 2008/07/18
Hey! It's me again! Just want to share with you guys something I did that I thought was real interesting today. Remember I went to a language school in Tokyo around 5 years ago? I had a bicycle back then but after I left japan, it's been sitting in the office waiting for it's owner to come back to him. Last nite, my bicycle had once again returned to the hands of his master- me. My shooting was scheduled to start at 11:45 this morning and I thought I should give myself a new challenge therefore I decided to ride my bike to work- from Shinjuku to Yokohama. For your information, that's really far. I told my colleagues my plan and they all thought I was crazy because it normally takes almost an hour by car. I started from my hotel at 8:15am and got there at 11:10am with only two 5 minute rests in between. An i-pod and a map and I started pedalling towards my goal with a determination hard as a rock. Got to the studio, took a quick shower and started my filming.

Although it sounded kind of ridiculous at first but I thought we should give ourselves some challenges once in a while to test our determination. Our lives only become more interesting when we face tests and obstacles that require us a lot of "strength" to overcome. I came across a lot of hills that were really hard to ride on but I saw it as obstacles that I face in life. Satisfaction comes after overcoming difficult obstacles. I used steep hills as a metaphor for challenges in life. Although it was just a bicycle ride but it meant quite a lot to me from another perspective. I believe that we should occassionally offer ourselves some challenges to prevent our "inner strength" or "courage" to get rusty.
