* To train oneself to do something in a controlled and habitual way.
As a young kid growing up discipline never seemed to be a real problem for me. I could push myself through the hardest of workouts for any sport or even easily stay up till 3:00 in the morning writing those 5 page english essays that always seemed to be due, but as I lay here in my bed, beat up from honeydoos and working overtime I realize the downtime from chasing trophy bluecat is truly needed, but it's stinks!!! Lol!!! Keeping ready the tow truck and boat up and running, the 12 rigs or more laced with top quality line securely connected to razor sharp 8 to 10 ought hooks, and the holding out from playing around to save enough money needed for worry-free pursuits of the 100lb blue-cat is tough stuff! So I ask myself, Is this a problem that's considered positive stress or negative stress??? For the moment, I feel it's definitely positive stress because my wife and boys seem to be real happy and our little family unit is stronger than ever, but it is a problem and one I hope never changes as I am so glad to have it.
On another note, last season was crazy fun and I can't quit thinking about it. There is not a day that goes by, the fish and the people I got to share it with don't run through my mind. At my house there is a weird but peaceful kinda feeling floating around in the air like a feather. I haven't said anything, but I can tell the wife can feel it too. It's simply by the way she looks at me as I am speedily and seriously trying to complete all the major honeydoos she has laid out on the table. Her eyes will never look away from mine until I have moved them and every time I turn around they're right back. She knows... She has seen me like this before and she knows... She knows the time is coming and it shall be upon us before we know it. https://youtu.be/ZPcaWUxMZVk
