Word of the day #1–Discipline

“Perhaps the most valuable result of all education is the ability to make yourself do the thing you have to do, whether you like it or not.”
― Thomas Henry Huxley

Here is my word of the day, freshly extracted from The American Heritage dictionary:

Discipline: n. 1. Training expected to produce a specific character or pattern of behavior, especially training that produces moral or mental improvement.  2. Controlled behavior resulting from disciplinary training; self control.  3a  Control obtained by enforcing compliance or order.

“Discipline.” The American Heritage Dictionary. 4th ed. Houghton Mifflin Co. Boston-New York: 2006.

This year I will select a series of words that go in line with my goals and with the person I am.  Discipline is a big one this year and going forward.  No matter how excited one may be about a project or a goal, there will be times that excitement and motivation will be low; during those times, it is discipline that will help you continue on.

I hope to look back at the end of 2013 and feel that all my actions were in line with the person I am.  I respect and embrace discipline.  If I’m not being disciplined, then there is a disconnect between what I believe and my actions.  This year I am embracing discipline to the fullest. Discipline welcome to my life!



Here is my mom preparing some yummy food.  My mother is such an inspiration to me (When she is not in a bad mood :) ).  All her life, she has been a very hard working woman.  She has her moments, but she has an amazing heart and likes helping people. I love my mother.
