The following is a guest post written by Sheila Petruccelli of Sure as the World.
Usually it sneaks up on me.
It starts as an infrequent whisper and quickly progresses to an insistent echo in my head. It undercuts my plans and has me second-guessing just about everything. It casts a shadow over the good days and magnifies the bad ones.
It follows me from morning to night and even haunts my dreams.
It’s doubt: a nebulous and invasive feeling of uncertainty that makes me feel as though I’m standing in quicksand.
It happens about once every homeschooling year, and it absolutely slays me.
