It is the only thing we have. This very moment.
My hope for you is that you feel well, safe, secure, and even happy ... in this moment right now.
As a family caregiver to an aging loved one, you know there are some moments that are very joyful while other moments can be tough to get through. Frustration, anxiety over the uncertainty, even loneliness can appear. Guilt is usually never far away either, right?
When you catch yourself in moments that don’t feel good, please remember, and act on these two things:
You are doing great! Do you know how I can say that? It’s because you are doing the best YOU can with what you have and what you know!
And when you don’t know something, you reach out to learn something new or different to try. That marks a person for greatness!
Continue to reach out. Continue to learn. Find out other ways to do things, to respond to situations, to gain a bigger perspective on it.
This moment is all we have.
This very moment.
One day it will be in the past to reflect on. I hope it makes you smile. You know, from that bigger perspective. 😊
