- training that molds or perfects the mental faculties
- self-control gained by orderly patterns of behavior
It is no surprise to those that know me. I am not disciplined. I have a hard time with schedules. I own my own business and I homeschooled my child for seven years, and I believe those choices, in large part, were due to my lack of discipline and that I don't play well with authority. My poor kid - it's a wonder she's survived. On any given day, she is the most mature person in the house.
That's it. I've picked my word of the year. If you'll excuse me, I'm going to go cry.
