In this never-ending role and gift of homeschooling and parenting, change/growth and evolution is necessary. As you develop as a whole, healthy parent and perfect your unschooling and/or homeschooling methods/models/etc.- these things will challenge your comfort zones and your hard-wired tendencies and proclivities.
Change requires growth.
Expansion requires stability.
Release the need for things to be perfect before you begin to make moves toward something better and greater. (I started out homeschooling with the goal for my youngest to read 4 to 5 word sentences (Stage Preschool to 1 books) and write 4 to 5 word sentences. He ended the year reading at a "2nd grade level" according to a formal test.)
We literally have to continue to grow into our best selves (continuous rebirth- come through Kemetic Ancestors!) as we shape and cultivate the minds and talents of our children.
I've learned so many skills sets and gained so much new knowledge/information all due to my commitment to providing needed opportunities to exposure and training for myself, my children and my community. I am an introvert by nature and I have a diagnosed mental health disorder which causes most people with this label to sporadically work and have to live on disability. I understand that some of my children's goals require monetary contributions that exceeded my husband's ability to pay. I stepped out of my comfort zone, started contacting old employers and now work part-time outside of my home in order to provide Taekwondo and STEM trainings (about $400/month). I had to give up the idea that "I'll never be able to work a regular job again." Yes, I might not be able to do this for years but I can do it for some months if I need to do so.
My immediate goal right now is to create a stable home and community environment for my family. I can not expect expansion, without creating a firm foundation (stability) ushered in by growth in my ideologies and daily habits.
What old ideologies, thoughts, or habits are you willing to lay down in order to create space for change/growth/evolution, stability and expansion?
