Discipline is a necessity for moms and homemakers in order to have a smooth running household. There is no question that we will need to crucify our flesh in order to perform our duties. There are definitely parts of running a home that require being dutiful. Laundry, cleaning up the kitchen after dinner, disinfecting bathrooms, making meals and so on.
If we lay out an awesome plan but fail to follow through on it, it gains us nothing. We must work the plan in order for the plan to work.
This morning I was up at 5:40am and completed much of my VA (virtual assistant) work before the children woke up. It shocked me how "slow" time went by because I woke up early to get a head start on the day. For me, this will take some real discipline to continue, but the benefits are definitely worth it!
