Find the soft edges on a rocky road

Saskia de QuaastenietCaregiver Resources

Oh my gosh! There are those days as a caregiver that just make you feel you are on a rocky road.

Doctor’s appointment got cancelled…

The medication was not ready at the pharmacy…

The cleaning lady did not show up at your mom’s house…

And you went to work feeling sick…

As a caregiver you want help to get off that rocky road and feel better. The keyword is “Allow”.

Rather than staying stuck in the ‘what ifs” or the drama and challenge of the present moment, allow yourself to find the soft edge that helps ease your day. This could be a phone call with a friend, a 15- minute break, a walk in the forest, buying flowers to cheer you up, doing some gardening, reading a chapter in your favorite book, bake a pie and dig in right away.

Allow yourself to do something that bring you joy, shifts your mindset and gets your away from the rocky road you were on.

When you look around, you will always find soft edges on the side of a rocky road…

What will you do today that softens your day?
