I have found I am a much better homeschooler when I do those things that ENERGIZE me. I love this journey through home education but if I’m not careful I could easily become burned out by my daily responsibilities. I have found that if mama ain’t excited, NOBODY is!
How do you stay energized?
What fills your cup?
Going for a walk
Listening to your IPOD
Talking with a friend on the phone
One sweet friend loves to go grocery shopping every single week. It’s the one day that her husband watches all her kids. She takes her IPOD, her grocery list and spends two hours shopping!
Another friend of mine loves to get in her kitchen and bake.
Maybe you can’t do something every single day? That’s okay. But make time to do something to energize yourself or you will find yourself burned out. The truth is that we cannot give away what we don’t own. You can’t pour into your children if you’re cup is dry.
