So, this is my, hm, fourth? attempt to start a blog. I know this does not seem to bode well, but with every try, I learned something new:
- I am not someone who can easily separate work and private stuff. Or even my “mission” (we’ll come to that) from the private stuff. I am just one person, so why try? For that sake of some personal brand? Or to dominate a niche? Frak this marketing stuff!
- The primary topic is important. And after everything that happened over the last years – near burn-out, my papa’s death, being diagnosed with depression (finally!), and learning how to deal with all that – Mental and Emotional Self-Defense seemed like a good fit. (See, I told you I was going to talk about my mission.)
- I need to have some fun in the process. That’s why this has Gurus in Training (or GITs for short) in it. And Jiki-Do, The Way Of The Self. Jiki-Do is completely made up. Thanks to Kevin for helping me with the word. And apologies to everyone who knows Japanese and to the Japanese language.
I’ll be starting slowly. There’s a lot to configure here – from the security setting to how it will look on mobile devices to the design itself. But I did not want to wait to start writing.
So, dear Gurus in Training, see you in the future!

Like what you're reading? Hate it?
Then why not share it with the world with some adoring, thoughtful or scathing words?
