Discipline

Some things take discipline.  Some days I am good at discipline.  Some days I am not, so much.  Writing is sometimes just a pleasure, but these days, it seems like a discipline.  Same for parenting, and work and housework.  I am constantly working on each of those.

One thing, however, that doesn’t take a lot of discipline (at least for me) is my marriage.  Maybe it is because Phil has disciplined ME, but no matter.  In spite of dire warnings in every possible horoscope, match making book or zodiac, Phil and I just work together. Today, Phil and I have been married for 18 years, and I have nearly known him half my life.  It shouldn’t feel odd (knowing him half my life), but it does.  It was a low key anniversary, but that is okay.  Fifteen, Twenty, those should be Momentous Occasions, but 18 just feels like a comfortable milestone.

We are going on a family vacation shortly, which I am so greatly looking foward to.  I hope to lie around, hang out together, and be just the slightest bit bored (in between adventures, of course).  We can spend a little time together, getting used to our changing family, – of young ladies growing into young women and having quite different needs.  Getting through the next few years will most definately take discipline, on all our parts. 

Without discipline, there’s no life at all.”  Katherine Hepburn.

    That is known that money can make people disembarrass. But what to do when someone has no cash? The only one way is to get the loan or just sba loan.

    I would like to wish the author a really happy anniversary. In fact both of them should be thankful to God for giving such an understanding partner. As pointed out by the author discipline is essential for success. If you take a closer look at all the great personalities of the world you will notice that they always attached utmost importance to discipline. But too much discipline is also bad. In my view you have to strike a balance between the two.
