The Two Pains

Discipline versus Regret

Not counting the pain that occurs due to an accident, pregnancy, or any other acute pain scenario you can conjure, there are two distinct pains that we experience during our lives (I am sure you can think of more, but please bear with me for the sake of this blog…).

In terms of these two types of pain, one of them we feel now, and the other later, sometimes much much later. One is generally tough on the ego upfront, the other can destroy it all together. One may cause us to limp for a brief period, the other can cause an alteration in our gait for the rest of our lives.

The best part is that we can limit the pain we experience now and later. We have to be willing to take on a few tough obstacles. We have to be willing to fight for what we believe in.

We must take on a little DISCIPLINE if we hope to look back on our lives with a smile. Without a little DISCIPLINE our lives will surely be filled with more than a handful of relentless REGRET.


You don’t want to be sitting on the couch in your 50s, 60s or beyond (or even your 20s and 30s) wishing you would have done “it” differently. And if you are already there, don’t fret, it’s never too late to knock a few things off the bucket list.

So why wait?

Welcome DISCIPLINE. Don’t shy from it. It is not a bad word even though many folks view it as such.

REGRET is a much worse state of being. It is disabling. And you often, if at all, cannot back track on the path that it has created.

Blessings to you as welcome a little DISCIPLINE and visibly shun REGRET from you life.
