Here are some areas that I'm planning to reflect on in the back-half of my Year of Discipline.
- daily routine
- career maintenance
- meal planning
- spiritual practices
- growing our family
- home organization
- stress management
I also wrote down a few words after making that list and trying to think of how I could categorize them ... because categorizing things is fun to me. The words were:
Ultimately, what this year comes down to is wanting to better appreciate how my time is a limited and precious resource, and I believe that the more of a healthy handle I have over my physical resources - the things that I have - then the better control I'll have over my time. And I believe that being disciplined with these things will really help my relationships, but I have to be careful to not get bogged down in so much activity that it backfires and my relationships suffer.
It's worth mentioning that I've been reflecting a lot on outer discipline and inner discipline, and that's something I'll be working on too ... because ultimately this all comes down to character, and not just actions.
That's it for now, a little view into what I mean when I talk about my "Year of Discipline." I'm excited to use my blog to share some things that I learn and do on my journey to being more disciplined. Wish me luck and if you are the praying kind, I would appreciate a few prayers to keep me focused. :)
