A life transformation!







Today I am thankful for homeschooling. It has been the best thing that has ever happened to me. 

 
Over the last couple of years, {& specifically the last 6 months}, I have learned many of the ugly, but somehow really quite wonderful, truths about myself & about this crazy life. 






Because of homeschooling, I now know what my talents & strengths are. I know exactly what brings me joy. I know what I believe & why. I now how to voice my boldness on my endless array of sentiments {haha enjoy..}. I now know who my so called friends are - why I thought they were my friends, why they aren't really my friends, & why they never really were my friends. 

 
In public school I always thought that I was pretty confident, "Wasn't Influenced By Peer Pressure", you know, had my shtuff together; but I never knew how much I was affected by the nonsense-of-high-school. I never knew how much other people's opinions effected my own morals & values! I am glad that I have ditched all of the belittling comments, questions, & concerns, trying to manipulate & condemn me into someone else's "feeling" of who & what I should become. Now, I look at those people with compassion, because I know that it's now their problem. I frankly do not care what they think, because I will passionately live out MY destiny, no matter the odds.

 
Because of homeschooling, I now know what I want to do & exactly who I want to be. I want to spread love wherever I go. I strive to be a light. I don't want anyone to ever come to me, without leaving happier. I desire to be an inspiration to others; to get up every morning aspiring for what this life as to offer. In the end, I want someone to come up to me & tell me, that because of me, they never gave up. 

 
I just want to thank God for giving me this wonderful blessing of homeschooling. It has challenged every belief I have ever had. It has pushed me beyond my limits. It has helped create me into the {still-have-a-lot-to-learn} young woman that God is molding me into. It has totally transformed my life. 

That's my story & I'm stickin to it.
