Day 128- Living "Discipline"

This is part of the series “Living Words"
When looking at the word “discipline” I see negative attachments from the perspective of having consequences for not following a certain direction (like at school for example), trying to establish control over others. I can also see a positive attachment from the perspective of self control and commitment- when one commits to a task- establishing control over oneself. So within this writing I want to transform this word into a word of self creation which in terms creates benefits for oneself. So lets call it “self supportive discipline”.

Some ways to sound out the word discipline:

-diss-spleen (as not being nice to someone)
-this-I-apply


Redefinition: Self Discipline: Making a decision and applying it consistently in with the awareness that when applying the decision consistently there is a self benefit (a reward if you will) like being proud of what I have created. For example- commitment would be a form of self discipline.
