Consistency & Discipline
Happy New Year to each and everyone here in Persona Paper . I would like to send my warmest welcome to all of you for this new decade. You know, I’ve been not posting here for a while due to loaded job and adulting and I’m not really into writing. So I’m here now to share some of my biggest resolutions.
First, the reason I joined the PP 5 years ago was because the renowned platform ‘ Bubblews ’ was on the verge of shutting down and I was unemployed that time. It was that time PP was paying to writers too. But I didn’t make it to the point that I received payout because I (lazy) only write few article. Until PP changed their terms and stop paying due to Adsense problem.
But, I didn’t leave the platform because as the time goes on when I visit PP weekly and read some of the articles, I can see compassionate writers, rather people, as they share happenings in their lives and interact with each other, even in informal English (I’m one of ‘em). It’s like a community for bonding people around the world. (Yes, I was only on ‘spectator mode’ for the past months). I don’t know about the other ' article sites ' if it’s the same atmosphere here in PP, because I have only joined Bubblews and PersonaPaper. But that’s what I feel.
Okay enough with my drama, l only really want to share my resolution for this fresh start decade. I must realize for my 27 years of existence to have CONSISTENCY and I really want to DISCIPLINE myself to be CONSISTENT , but for the past few years I find it so difficult to achieve. I am the living image of “ good at first ”. That’s why I couldn’t afford now to be like my old self anymore. I have so many things that come into my mind, but the first things that come up at this moment is to be really active in physical fitness (I want to live longer) then read books and able to write here in PP even once or thrice a month to exercise my English (I want to live in English speaking environment). In other words, Mental and Physical development. Of course, one at a time.
I don’t know how to end this as my mind want to say more, I will just leave a quote from Jim Rohn; “ We must all suffer from one of two pains: the pain of discipline or the pain of regret. The difference is discipline weighs ounces while regret weighs tons. ”
