Homeschooling isn’t for the faint hearted but I don’t believe motherhood is either. Whether you are a homeschool mom, public school mom or private school mom the reality is that some days are going to be harder than others. Just because the day, week or month is hard doesn’t mean that you aren’t capable of conquering your current mountain.
Years ago, when I started dipping my toes into homeschooling and blogging I wasn’t quite sure what I was doing or what to expect. I knew that what I wanted my life to look like was different than the “norm.” I read a million articles, tried a bunch of ideas and still didn’t know enough. I was overwhelmed but not willing to give up the battle that I felt called to. Years later I can say that I am still learning each and everyday. I know more about who I am as a mother, and my reasons for being here. I can’t sit here and tell you that I know the answers for your family or that life gets easy but I am willing to share my journey and be a friend for you.
Together, we will figure out our individual motherhood journey
and grow to become the homeschool mom that we are working to be.
Now, down to business. In recent years I have been sharing resources and books, it hasn’t been bad but it’s not something I really feel called to do. I need to do more. I can do more for me and for you. In my non-virtual life, I’ve been focusing a lot more on community and connection. It has been so refreshing but I also feel the draw to those that are far away from me. I need friends that see things different than me and ones that ask questions that I haven’t thought of yet. I’ve been doing my fair share of building connections on Instagram but have been disengaged from my own site. It’s time to change that.
Other platforms are making rules for what is or is not okay to share and that makes me incredibly uncomfortable. Growing also makes me uncomfortable but I have found myself in a place where I am either going to change directions and grow or call it quits to stay true to myself.
I am not ready to quit so a pivot is on the way.
You will still find me on Instagram and Facebook but I hope this blog becomes a a safe place for questions, mistakes and community. I might even jump back onto Youtube if I feel the pull there.
I need some help to get started! How can I help you? What struggles are you facing? What area of my life do you want a peek at?
