Welcome to the final day of our free Courageous Homeschooling course.
We've covered an awful lot of ground.
I do hope you've enjoyed it.
I'd like to buy you a bunch of flowers.
Instead, I'm going to be harsh and leave you with a final task – but I hope you will find it is a bit like getting a box of chocolates.
I want you to write down everything in your life to be thankful for.
We've taken so many steps to take away the fears around homeschooling.
We now know that:
1. Whatever happens, you'll handle it.
2. You are in control.
3. You are strong and powerful and loving.
And, most importantly:
4. You can do it!
But to truly understand that we now have the tools we need to make homeschooling everything you dreamed it could be, we need to...
You guessed it....
I'm going to join with Susan and say:
you look round with your new mindset, you will see that you are
surrounded by wonder and beauty and a multitude of things to be thankful
And you will start to appreciate the true value of homeschooling.
Let's do what Susan suggests and start writing down as many positive
things in your life - past and present - as you can think of.
Focus on all the good things in your life, however small.
I don't know whether you left you enough room to write the 150+ things that Susan thinks you can come up with, but you can make a start.
Susan has many more life changing ideas in her book, like tapping into the energy of your Higher Self, which are beyond the scope of the Courageous Homeschooling course.
As she says, working out what makes you happy and fulfilled takes a lifetime.
But she has helped us enormously by proving that we can overcome our fears and make homeschooling fulfilling and rewarding for all of us.
Let's finish with a task that we can enjoy for the rest of our homeschooling journey.
Her idea prompted the idea of the Courageous Homeschooling Journal which would give you a place to start your book of life changing thoughts.
Journaling is a proven method to help think things through, make you dig deep and become more courageous in your approach.
What a perfect way to end our Courageous Homeschooling course.
what you’ve achieved, you’ll see I have made you a certificate to print
out and prove that you are now on the right path to fulfillment and
P.S. Homeschooling is all about helping each other.
