“If mama ain’t happy, ain’t nobody happy!” This phase is so cliché because it’s true. As a homeschool mom, you give yourself a lot of hats to wear, you use your precious creativity and energy to see to it that your children’s needs are met, and you wouldn’t want it any other way! But— who sees to it that your needs are met?
Your energy is a precious resource. Let’s learn about managing it and multiplying it by finding pockets of stillness in your hectic days and tapping into your source of deep renewal so that you can give at your greatest capacity. Sometimes less is more. Your efforts are enough. You’ve got this, mama!
