Discipline...


Discipline; that scary place between want and acquire. If you want to reach the stars you have to cut through the crap and find your way. It should be a four letter word this Discipline. If you are in front of the Discipline process you look forward with hope and inspiration. When you reach the other side you look back with pride and accomplishment. But that scary place inbetween can be a real problem. Especially when hope has such a tendency to fluxuate. It rises and falls with the tide. When up, discipline steps forward and pushes you along. When it wanes, hope falters, that star you're reaching for seems to move further our of reach.
Which is the challenge. How do you keep the hope alive so dicsipline can guide you?

Aimless, I LOVE your new blog look!!! Especially the colors! That navy blue is gorgeous.

I've been feeling so lazy, lately. I sort of feel I should be writing 5,000 words a day when I'm not working that day. I don't do anything else, and I used to be able to do that without blinking an eye.

I've been reading a lot. I feel like I need to read so much and learn so much, and yet, after spending the reading time, I feel like a lazy louse. I don't know.

As Dory says in Finding Nemo: "Just keep swimming." :D

And I love your blog redesign!

Thanks Spy!
I've been slacking lately. I can't seem to get my groove back. 5,000 words a day? Yikes! I'd settle for 1,000. And that would be a blessing

Zoe,
Good advice. Sometimes we have to keep our eye on the moment to survive the ride.
Thanks!
