We’ll chat about how to influence your homeschool with self-awareness.
The biggest thing I can do for myself is be really honest and compassionate with about what I really need? What would be nourishing? Is it actually just giving yourself permission to be tired or to be sad? We as women carry a lot and we are so intuitively self-sacrificing. And that is a great strength, but we also have to look out for ourselves.
Dustin and I discuss how to influence your homeschool with self-awareness.
We need to acknowledge what we really need, and we need to turn toward ourselves and ask ourselves what we need.
Sometimes we need to acknowledge that we’re not at our best and that is okay too.
We need to acknowledge our needs as much as we acknowledge the needs of those we love around us.
Also, we need to acknowledge how we really feel about ourselves and engage ourselves.

I need to have a compassionate, honest relationship with myself. To understand what I “can” do for myself instead of “should” do for myself. To recognize what’s truly nourishing, not simply doing something because I feel I should.
