Little Things I’ve Learned Living in a Big Family (2 of 5)


Not only am I the fourth of seven siblings… we were also all homeschooled.  Now, before you write me off as some Amish freak of nature that doesn’t believe in electricity or birth-control… hear me out.  I’m a “normal” homeschooler… really, I am.  But there are a few things I’ve gained from being homeschooled that I wouldn’t trade for the world… 

Self-discipline–I learned that the only person I was hurting by not doing my work… was me. 

Motivation–The quickest way of getting something done is to do it!

Perseverance–I didn’t only get a grade… I actually learned what the books were trying to teach… even if that meant going back several times and trying again. 

But the greatest lesson I learned from being homeschool was how to learn.  I wasn’t just a student, I was a learner.  Which has served me well long after the graduation hat flew into the air.  Because I learned how to learn, I feel confident tackling any obstacle thrown my way.

What obstacles could you be tackling with a learner’s mindset?
