Still Around

Good evening, my dear friends.

The summary in the sidebar on the left is telling me that my last post here at Persona Paper was three weeks and six days ago. Well how time flies. Amazing and sad at the same time. Amazing that many thing have happened in these 27 days. Sad that I was away from Persona Paper.

Promises

I promised you several posts and didn't keep the word. I feel bad about it. I am still eager to fulfill these promises. I want to be honest to my commitments and especially to you.

Changes

There were major changes in my daily routine and my time behind the home computer is shorter now. Which is good in one way and bad again in another.

Challenges

These days of constant holidays are challenge for itself. But I am quite good at ignoring the pressure of obligatory 'you have to spend to feel good' spirit that merchants try to put upon us. Instead I am creating my own challenges. There will be three at the same time starting from January 5th 2015. I will tell you more about them when the time will be ripe.

Rolling

Today is the Day No. 111 of my Run Every Day Challenge. Running every day is now like brushing your teeth. I enjoy every second of it and i don't want to break the streak. Again, no pressure. Simply continuation.

Good night

I am ashamed but I will tag this post with . I am not keeping up with all the tasks that this tag represents. But I am here in the spirit,

Sleep well. Better and better.

I am trying to stay active on this site but it is hard because the page is so slow, I can hardly write and comment. I am trying to stay around here.

welcome back :) I too wish to be able to be more active but it is hard but I will be cashing out today!

My last post is even longer ago than yours. I have one in my mind maybe I'll get to it today. That is great, running all those days. Wow!!! I should start a one day streak of going for a stroll at least. lol

Good for you cashing out. Enjoy your bounty. :D

We're just glad to see you back. Do what you can. That's all one can do.

I think a lot of us are having the same issue right now. I know I am. I'm hoping things slow down after the holidays so that I can write more.

Wow, running every day for 111 days. Fantastic!

Lemark whatever amount of time you can devote to this community is always welcome, I find. People here is very friendly and supportive. Good job on your running challenge, hope to see more of that pretty soon.

Lemark wrote on December 21, 2014, 9:30 AM

Thank you very much for both welcoming me back and for the understanding.

Lemark wrote on December 21, 2014, 9:34 AM

I've read you post about how slow the site is for you. I do hope that the response time is OK now.

Lemark wrote on December 21, 2014, 9:36 AM

Great to hear that. Congratulations! It is a great achievement.

Lemark wrote on December 21, 2014, 9:39 AM

So you did post two articles this weekend. Congratulations!

Do start a walking streak. One day then another and another. Before you notice you will be in double digits and feeling great.

Lemark wrote on December 21, 2014, 9:39 AM

Thank you very much, Barb. You are always so understanding.

Lemark wrote on December 21, 2014, 9:50 AM

Thank you too for the understanding. I know that things will not slow down after the holidays because I won't let them slow down. I have this strange habit of starting projects but not finishing them. But these three projects that I will begin right after the New Year approached me by themselves and I accepted their invitation :)

Lemark wrote on December 21, 2014, 9:51 AM

Thank you very much. I do short and very slow runs, usually late in the evening. I am progressing to short and not so slow runs now :)

Lemark wrote on December 21, 2014, 9:53 AM

Thank you very much on all accounts. Yes, people here are kind and supportive. That's why I keep coming back - to share this attitude.

I read an article on a news site this week about Ron Hill, who has run at least a mile every day for the last 50 years. I certainly walk that far a day, but running? No way.

I am glad that you have posted all these honestly.
I have a hard time coming here regularly because I have regular job
But I am always happy being here

Running everyday. I'm hard pressed to get a walk in. Don't worry about your space between posts. I haven't even tried one above the one required.

Lemark wrote on December 27, 2014, 4:05 PM

WordChazer , as long as you are moving and keeping fit you are OK. So congratulations to you :)

Lemark wrote on December 27, 2014, 4:05 PM

Thank you very much. I share your sentiment.

Lemark wrote on December 27, 2014, 4:07 PM

Thank you, Katherina201 . I love to run. It is my religion :) But I am not obsessed with it.

I love to write too. Let us try to write more that one post in a day together :)
