Life after Homeschooling: What's Next, Mom?

There was a time I actually thought it noble to focus all of myself on the children, and felt offended by the implication that I should take breaks.

I've learned that ignoring myself isn't necessarily selfless, and my children will ultimately benefit from a more complete me.

It does occur to me that one day all five of my kids will fly the nest, and then what?  Should I worry that my skills won't permit me to pick things up where I left them before I became a mother and decided to leave the work force?

I've learned to look forward instead of looking back.  I'm ever growing and changing.  I don't expect to pick up where I left off, but to build on what I've been doing all along.

In the video I share what that may look like.  Check it out and be sure to let me know what you think.
