I always have some issues in keeping commitment in almost anything, the biggest being too lazy to keep it going. For example, I love photography, but my spirit in it were only high in the first two months I got my first DSLR. I used to go out to randomly shoot people and things, admiring the pictures myself before uploading some of them immediately to my deviantArt gallery. But soon, I stopped doing that almost completely, and I let my poor, little DSLR dusting sadly inside the camera bag.
For me, that’s a big issue since if I keep doing the do-it-then-stop-it commitment in a larger scale, it would be catastrophic (I’m talking about marriage-scale commitments).
But then I stumbled upon The Daily Post and discovered the Post a Day/Post a Week challenge, in which people who participate in it have to post something in their blog either every day or every week—their choice. And then I thought, oh wow, that would be a good therapy for me to get over my commitment problem. As what they say, “face your fears, live your dreams” (just substitute “fears” with “problems”).
I decided to participate in it, particularly the Post a Week because it will be much easier and less time-consuming. I don’t feel quite ready for Post a Day anyway. The important thing is to keep the posts coming, right?
So from this post on, I will dedicate one post every week for this challenge. We’ll see if I can manage through this therapy.
Wish me luck!
