Hey homeschooling mama. Can we be honest here? There are good days, and there are not-so-good days.
I think subconsciously we want nothing more than to have it – and keep it – all together. Just do a quick Pinterest or Google search and you’ll find results (and some) that scream it.
The truth of the matter is homeschooling mamas already have so much pressure. The last thing we need is another added unexpected expectation, or another item added to the to-do list.
While all of that is on one end of the scale, there is something positive on the other end to balance it out. Just like every pregnancy is different, so is every family and how we decide to homeschool.
This is something worth shouting from the rooftops!
If you’ve been homeschooling any amount of time, then you know that each year, the doubts will arise. Questions being to flood our thoughts, and the process of rebooting starts all over again.
We have to learn to ignore the doubts and fears, not letting them have the final say in our journey.
Learning how to navigate the twists and turns of homeschooling isn’t always an easy task… and this is where a good dose of encouragement comes in.
Simply put, we need it. We need it more than we are willing to admit. And this, friend, is why I want to share three specific bit of encouragement with you.
I know what it’s like to feel like you are failing. I understand what the end of the rope feels like. And I sure as heck have seen what the end of the road looks like.
So here’s to encouraging you to keep going… no matter where you are in your journey.
