I’m sure there’s a lot. It’s a matter of focusing on the positive stuff , the stuff you are grateful for instead of what you don’t like. That’s one of the methods Miro and I use to live a rocking life. And we’ve been invited to talk about our lives at a conference about natural learning, unschooling and conscious parenting called coincidentally “The Life Rocks Conference”!
I believe that everyone has unique (and rocking) aspects of their lives, that should be honored and celebrated. It’s just a matter of of focusing on what you appreciate and honoring the brilliance of what you’ve created.
So, in just about two months, Miro and I will be sharing our rocking life in front of about 500 of our newest friends! And for us, this is the most amazing opportunity for us to sit down and decide which aspects of our lives are most rocking, and how those accomplishments may inspire others.
We can use your help, do you have any suggestions for us??
In addition to this wonderful opportunity of reflection, it gives Miro and I the opportunity to jointly stand in front of a crowd for the first time and present (and affirm) the lifestyle we’ve created with each other.
At this point, we are formulating our thoughts about what we will present, but again, if you have any suggestions for us, please leave them in the comments below. We are thinking we’ll talk about our path, the changes that have taken place in both of our lives, our hearts, our perceptions and our learning approaches. I’d love to share the things we’ve learned to value the most and the gifts of perception gained through our path. Maybe we’ll even focus on all the natural learning we’ve embarked upon together and how our relationship has strengthened as a result of our world schooling. What do you think?
We share the details of our lives here on our blog in the form of written word and even in video and podcasts. But we are so honored to be asked to stand in affirmation in front of 500 people and share our lives and can only hope it serves to inspire and empower others.
“The Life Rocks! Conference is a gathering of conscious parents, radical unschoolers, organic, natural learning families and those wishing to explore a partnership parenting paradigm.”
Lainie and her son Miro are living a location independent lifestyle, slow traveling around the globe and living in the present moment. Lainie writes about staying inspired, participating as a global citizen, volunteering, unschooling & natural learning. Lainie and Miro are both following their interests on the road, as the planet has been transformed into their classroom. Often you will hear Lainie say “we are blessed to be accidental world schoolers” and has become and an advocate for “life learning” at any age. Lainie & Miro have taken this philosophy to heart and are producing a series of family & teen oriented retreats in called Project World School.
