My Mom, My New "Friend"

 

Has anyone ever felt that moment when you realized that you and your mom are now “friends”?

I don’t mean “friends” in the sense where you can go to the club together. But, “friends” in the sense that I now can be my true self, and I don’t need to worry about what I say around you “friends”. I just realized that this moment has happened with my mom and I. But, the funny part about it is that I never thought we would be able to get here. 

When I became my mom’s caregiver, our relationship really changed. Which is normal when you’re a caregiver. The child becomes the “parent”, and the parent becomes the “child”. No longer are our conversations filled with thoughts about whether I’m eating or taking care of myself. Now, the conversations revolve around making sure she’s eating, putting on clean clothes, and being careful as she walks up and down the stairs at the house.

Giving Back Is Just Like Graduating

It’s that time of the year where many of us are celebrating the graduation of our loved ones. Graduation is a life altering moment that truly deserves to be savored and enjoyed.

This year my sister graduated from college, and watching her walk across that stage was one of the happiest moments of my life. My sister really struggled to earn her degree due to her disability. It may have taken her longer than the norm. But, she made it. She never gave up, and truly values the gift of education.

There are many people in the world that would give up everything they had to go to school. Especially, the people who struggle to get an education because of the poverty they face on a daily basis. Poverty is a worldwide problem that is truly impacting lives on all levels.

Still Standing in My Truth

350 days later in my quest to be a better person, daughter, and caregiver.

It's amazing what you can accomplish in 350 days. When I wrote this post last year, I was reeling from an argument with my mom. I was sick and tired of being "sick and tired." I wanted to be a better daughter, person, and caregiver; so I made the decision to begin standing in my "brokenness". 

350 days later, and I'm still "broken". But, I'm definitely in recovery. I'm so blessed to have the opportunity to deal with myself. There are so many of us operating on "functional brokenness", and it's holding us back from living our best lives. I hope this post encourages you to take that step, and stand in your truth. This is a "no judgement" zone, and i'll be happy to support you on the journey. So, let me know your thoughts. We're in this together smile

Every Day Is Resurrection Day

**This is a post that I previously wrote. But, I felt the reminder is always needed :-). Enjoy your week, and live completely!*****

 

This morning I was in church reflecting on the true implications of the “Resurrection”. To think that God sent his only son to die on the cross, and rise on the third day for our sins. That is such a powerful act of love. How many of us would be willing to die for someone else? Especially, someone who you may not even know. We are so blessed, and it made me realize that everyday is an opportunity for us to move past the things or people who hold us back from living in our purpose.

Five Steps To Take On The Journey To Happiness, When You're A Caregiver

Hello everyone! It’s time to start another week. I feel so blessed and happy that I made it. But, I can I tell you something? I’m feeling a little overwhelmed and depressed today. 

I always try to keep things positive and light. I’ve been told countless times before that the best blogs are positive; and believe me I strive to be positive 99.9% of the time. But, at this moment, I’m at about an 80% on the positive scale. I actually can’t stop thinking about how much I want to run away and sleep. Does that make me a bad person?

I hope not. It’s just how I’m feeling at the moment, and I want to be honest about my feelings. Caregivers are rarely honest about how we feel. We always put on the front that everything is “ok”. But, it’s not all of the time. Many of us are trying to juggle families, jobs, bills, and making a life for ourselves. So, we’re exhausted, and that exhaustion can make us run on “auto-pilot” to get through life.
