It’s probably not the best mental attitude to have, but I always worry when things are fairly stable in our lives and going relatively smoothly. Why? Because I know “opportunities for growth” are just around the corner. Take July, for example….
On average, both lucky and those who consider themselves unlucky, are exposed to the same amount of bad and good happenings. Those who feel they are luckier than most tend to seek out rainbows, meaning they are looking for good things to happen or positive experiences to try. Those who focus on their problems and challenges tended to miss these “lucky” breaks.
Homeschooling is not for the faint of heart! It’s challenging sometimes, it can just be plain terrible some days, but I find that if we focus on the good that is happening it can really diminish the negatives. It will help you feel more confident as the teacher and your child(ren) will be more appreciative of this time together.
