My Definition of Discipline?

 

definition of discipline

I’m working on becoming more disciplined because I’m not a structured, rules and order kind of girl. I

“go with the flow”

and

“fly by the seat of my pants”.

This has served me well as a mother of 5. Children need structure but they are also the same little monsters that will tear up any schedule that you try to implement with their little oopsies and oowies and “i don’t wanna’s”! So I’ve never gotten into the habit of a regiment. Reading the Bible and praying everyday is the only thing that has been consistent in my life but that almost never happened at the same time of the day.

Now that the children are a little older I can become more disciplined with that but it’s the only thing. So as I take this journey of sticking to a disciplined, regimented routine (just typing those words makes me want to backspace and DELETE!) hang in here with me and hold me accountable.

 

Funny Mom Video

When my son called 911 and hung up I was TOTALLY embarrassed when they showed up to see if everything was okay. I can relate to this mom. LOL This is a funny video!

Business Travels Tips: Overriding the Hotel Thermostat

I love speaking to women across the country! It allows me to travel and see different parts of the country. But business travel isn’t as glamorous as it sounds. But here’s a business travel tip to help ease the stress. And it is stressful at times. I’ve encountered bed bugs.

I was trapped in a snowstorm for 4 days and couldn't go home.

I have played the waiting game to see if a plane would actually show up and take me on to my next destination.

Patiently waiting...waiting...waiting for my flight!

And I am not even going to talk about the variety of “fun” a mom can have when traveling with kids while on business.

However, I can’t complain because there are so many joys of traveling.

But I’ll tell you the biggest thing that annoys me when traveling: the hotel that doesn’t let me control the temperature of my room. I like it toasty. I don’t want to feel a hint of a chill on my skin when I go to the bathroom in the night or get out of the shower in the morning. So I was glad to find this video on how to override the thermostat on the wall! A great tip that I will use on my business trip next week!
