In my last post, I mentioned how my workouts had become blah. And how new, tough, workouts had re-kindled my passion.
I find that the same thing happens with unschooling..which, in our house, is life. We can get in a rut, of doing what we do, without thought, without joy, without passion. We need something new. or we need a new attitude, a new outlook.
So, Julie's Bravewriter post was an unschooling passion igniter for me.
Yes, we can do something different. Create. Go out. Do. Don't do.
In other words, try to create different niches, in our home or in our routine , for something new.
To capture that love - of working out yesterday; of learning and of being together today.
St John Bosco was a strong believer in play, in enjoying time with kids. He said Love what they [the children] love; and they will come to love what you love [God, prayer, the Church, the Sacraments]. The Saint also said, to the boys and young men in his care and under his guidance, Enjoy yourself as much as you like - if only you keep from sin..
The things that struck a chord with me, from Julie's list?
