And even more great stuff!

I stumbled across a great Unschooling Dad’s blog the other day and that, in turn, led me to find The Daily Groove.  Check out today’s Groove:

THE DAILY GROOVE ~ by Scott Noelle

:: The Sticky Speedometer ::

Some years ago, my car’s speedometer developed
a case of sporadic “stickiness.”

The first time it stuck I didn’t know it. I was
driving on a freeway, faithfully checking the
speedometer at regular intervals, and I believed
it was “right” even though my actual speed was
gradually increasing!

** It didn’t occur to me to question the
speedometer’s “authority.” **

Eventually the growing difference between what it was
telling me and the *feeling* of my actual speed made
me realize that the speedometer was stuck — that I’d
have to start relying on my *inner* guidance.

It was disconcerting at first, because I’d always
relied on the external authority, but before too long
I got pretty good at sensing whether I was going too
fast or slow. . . .

Today, let your feelings reveal and replace your
“sticky speedometers” — beliefs, expectations, and
rules that aren’t serving you.

When something looks right but *feels* wrong, be
willing to question even the unquestionable. For
progressive parents, some of the stickiest
speedometers are forms of “parental correctness”
that started as brilliant ideas.

Pretty darn awesome stuff, eh?  I know my speedometer gets stuck — a lot!

So I get Groovin’ in my inbox every morning.  It helps so much!  Between that, a daily Soulful Living reading, an amazing Unschooling list serve, an online Al-Anon group, and my daily CAL readings, I finally feel like I’m in my own groove with the support and encouragement to continue groovin’ on.
