…where you can be completely yourself…

*Here* hasn’t been ‘home’ yet. And I realized today it’s because I haven’t given myself permission to be totally and completely myself.

I’ve been holding back, partly because I wasn’t sure I wanted to be here, totally and completely. And partly because there are different regulations (and, it would seem, attitudes) about homeschooling here.

But today I was able to find just the right balance of how to fulfill the letter of the law without violating the spirit of what I believe the attachlings and I should be doing.

And it feels like I can breathe more freely again.

And in that way, this place can begin to feel like home…

…simply because I feel that I can be myself again.
