Simple Steps

When B and I first went vegetarian we ate everything that was not an animal, and a lot of junk food is not meat.  Most people, when they think vegetarian, think thin healthy people.  Be honest, I bet you do.  While B and I managed to lose some weight after the switch (not from any effort just from the diet change) it certainly wasn't enough to make us healthy.   This is sort of how I feel right now about our unschooling.  I finally let go of anything I was holding on to that had me pushing learning, but we aren't in a healthy place and I know it.

I feel a little lost and uninspired to "enrich" our environment.  It's not the kids I am worried about, it's me.  What am I doing with my days?  Am I setting a good example of how to spend my time wisely?  Am I learning or am I slacking off every day?  I'm not sure right now.  It's an uncomfortable feeling, but I like that I am aware of it.  We are coming into the busiest part of the year, made busier for us with two birthdays.  We are doing low-key this year.  I feel like the one thing I can focus on right now is keeping it simple.

  1. Sometimes the things that make us fee the most "uncomfortable" are the most worthwhile and enriching. Looking forwarding to hearing about how your adventure continues!
