What do you say to yourself in the middle of a particularly hard day?
Are you telling yourself this is a “but a moment” and “this too shall pass”?
Or are you sure the day is “a disaster” and “I’m failing”?
How you speak to yourself in your head makes a huge difference as to how your homeschool experience will turn out. If you are mean and cruel and beat yourself up when things don’t go well, you shatter your confidence and destroy the opportunity for things to change.
But if you can step outside and shift your perspective … if you can take a deep breath and realize that this is only one moment of many … things can start to turn around.
Each moment you have a choice. Each moment you can decide that this is “but a moment.”
