So, who are you? A realist? And optimist? A pessimist? A creative? A butcher, baker or candlestick maker?
For most people, they will answer… “well, it depends.”
Sure, it does! It can depend on the time of day, your mood, the traffic, the current circumstances you find yourself in, your thoughts of how others are (or will be) when you interact with them later that day, and more.
As a family caregiver for an aging loved one, you probably have them “all figured out” –right?! After all, you have been with this person your whole life!
Consider that you have been with many different versions of this person your whole life.
So what? You ask.
So, if there can be many different versions of a person, then there is room for possibilities, for potential, for exploration.
Offering a wider range of engaging activities for your loved one, may spark wider interests, untapped capabilities, and new opportunities for them to thrive in. Most importantly, the added enjoyment in their day or even just in the present moment, does a wonder of good for their overall well-being and health.
Go ahead and explore or reinvent from the big ol’ tub of possibilities! Half the fun is in the journey to discovery! Need some help with this? Just reach out, there is a lot of “gold” we can find together.
