No bad days, Morning in the moment



photo (a link) by Eva Witsel
This was never announced, though it's been there since 2008 or so:
No Bad Days—and fewer bad moments
http://sandradodd.com/badmoment

This goes with it, but has been announced.
Moments: Living in moments instead of by whole days.
http://sandradodd.com/moment

Here's a good match, but is a step away from unschooling. In those writings (SCA-related), if it says AElflaed or Ælflæd of Duckford, that's me.
Part of self awareness is to be physically self aware.
I've gotten better over the years.

When I was younger I lived too much in my head and would look through the lens of what should be, or could be, or might be, instead of stopping for two seconds to consider what actually, at that moment, was. If I'm not careful I can be cranky before I know I'm tired, and head-achy before I know I'm hungry.
More of that one here: http://sandradodd.com/duckford/mindfulness
Back to unschooling:
"At your house it will be morning again within 24 hours, but it could be morning in your heart any second."

Battling "You do you", Couch, "Me Time"

Added struggling, battling, and "You do you!" to the page on phrases to hear and avoid (halfway down)
http://sandradodd.com/phrases
BUT NOT ONLY THAT!
There is a new intro to that page by Deb Lewis. You might be disturbed, or amused, or both.

New page: Safe on the couch (more will be added there, over time)
http://sandradodd.com/couch

Addition to "Me Time" (bottom) and page clean-up

Universe, triangulation, instinct

In 2008 I started a page called "Your Own Model of the Universe," with a nice story by one mom named Beth.
In 2018 I added more to it!

Modernization, clean-up, and a new link, at Jubilation and Triangulation:

Additions to the Instinct page, which is fairly new, and pretty cool:

Separation, orthorexia, "I'm skeptical."

Two nice pieces of Karen James' writing added (at the bottom) to
http://sandradodd.com/separation,
and something by an anonymous writer, with links to two separate discussions about divorce avoidance.

The effect on unschooling of too much control and fear around food:

Updated all the links to articles on Joyce's page on the skepticism page. I will link to its intro, not to itself:
https://aboutunschooling.blogspot.com/2006/08/skepticism.html
It's an odd page, and twelve years old now. It's about adults learning about learning, I think.

Early days of unschooling

Three things, all Roya-related:

To the bottom of a 2009 combo interview/chat with Pam-the-mom, I have appended the texts of two posts on a now-gone platform, in which Roya describes the earliest days of her unschooling life. The sections are called "part one of a long and fascinating story" and "part two of journey into the center of the universe."
http://sandradodd.com/chats/pamsorooshian

Expanded the page on Roya:

Embedded newer version of sound file, of a 2009 talk Roya gave:
