A better nature

"Be conscious of what you're saying and doing. Be more aware of your thoughts. If you act or react in a knee-jerk way that doesn't help relationships with your family, apologize to them and make a different, better choice in that moment."

  1. Well that was certainly a nice surprise to pop up in my Google Reader! I followed the link to read the whole quote, then forwarded it to my hubby :-).

    It's been so long since I've written about unschooling; it was nice to reread that and let it roll around in my brain. And it also nudged me back to reading at Always Learning. I've been MIA from the list and the chat since late May because of health issues; I'm feeling so much better most days, now, and ready to get back in the midst of both again!

  2. I will be very happy to have you writing at Always Learning again!

  3. I picked a good time to ease back in, with the list being slow because of the holidays :-).

    Enjoy the symposium!! A friend and her daughter are attending, and I'm looking forward to hearing about it from them.
