Becoming more disciplined

The most difficult discipline for me is exercise and diet!  Anybody else there?  I have to work at it all the time.  I exercise first thing every morning--or else I wouldn't do it.  Here's my motto:  Whatever you have to do today that you don't want to do, do it first.  But every morning I have to talk myself into my exercise program.  Afterwards I'm so glad I did, so I've learned to think about how it feels when I've completed my 45 minutes, and how proud I am of myself for doing it, and that helps.

Being a good steward of our bodies is not easy, but it is a discipline that pays off.  Maybe you have some better ideas on how to make yourself exercise every day!

Commitment

This past week a young 20 something's woman, working toward a Masters Degree, told me that her generation is very reluctant to make a commitment to anything or anyone.  To quote her, they don't want to feel "chained" or "tied down" to an event or a person; they want to keep all options open and have lots of freedom and flexibility.

I just wonder if others in that generation share that feeling, or perhaps it's not a generational thing, but a cultural thing - meaning that our culture has produced that kind of attitude in people of all ages.

Love to have comments from any of you!
