Every once in a while a major force requires that we change or assimilate to continue to function. Equate such things--children, moving, switching jobs, homeschooling--to the Borg.
If you try to fight, you will be crushed.
"Resistance is futile."
Tomorrow, I will move my cube. Unfortunately, my cube isn't nearly as cool as the one in Star Trek, but it is where I work. And to do my work even better, I have to move. It's a good thing, but it will take a lot of work and adjustment.
Has homeschooling--or some other aspect of your life--begun to feel like a force threatening to assimilate you into oblivion? Are you feeling like you're losing yourself in the day-to-day tasks of life?
Or are you concerned about a change that is about to happen? A new job? Another child? An unfamiliar subject (e.g. calculus)?
If so, take heart! These are opportunities for you to move forward, gain new skills, and find joy in ways you have never experience before. Granted, it may be hard, require self-sacrifice, and be completely unpleasant at times.
In some cases, resistance is futile--and not even a good thing to do. In other situtations, we must stand up and beat back the overwhelming flood that is threatening us, our children, and perhaps, even humanity itself.
And here some people thought I was just moving to another part of the office.
May you have victory in the mundane areas of your life as well.
