As we wrap up with the last day of the 10 Days of Homeschool Encouragement, I’d like to ask you to get involved.
I’d like to celebrate all the ways we experience homeschool success.
Homeschool Success, Not Failure
It’s easy to focus on the things that don’t go well. That’s why I started out with The Real Phases of the Homeschool Year and a printable you can download. But the truth is that we all do so much well and we tend to overlook it.
We play it down.
We think the successes aren’t as important as the obvious failures.
We don’t allow the successes to shape how we view ourselves in a healthy way as homeschool moms, but instead focus over and over again on what we perceive as failures in the areas where we think we don’t measure up.
The successes are vitally important and they are everywhere – if you allow yourself to look.
Share Your Homeschool Success Stories
I would like to encourage you to take two minutes and share a bunch of your homeschool successes in the comments. Yes, a bunch. You think you don’t have a bunch, but you do.
You need to write them down. Other moms need to see them. People who are thinking about homeschooling and find this post need to read them. We need to celebrate all of the tremendous good happening every day in our homes.
If you have one of my homeschool planners, you’ll know that there are a couple of pages in every planner called “Moments to Remember in _________________” with 31 numbered lines – one for each day of the month. They are in there for a reason. They are in there to help us remember the funny things, the profound things, the important things, and the amazing things that happen every. single. day. in our homeschools.
Please don’t be shy.
And don’t feel like it’s wrong because you are bragging.
We’re celebrating. We’re celebrating all the hard work we all do every day. We’re celebrating the long hours we’ve put in to make sure our children have the educational experience they need. I want to celebrate with you! So please share with us your homeschool success stories!
This is part of my 10 Days of Homeschool Encouragement series.
