The Top Five Tips for Handling Difficult Conversations When You’re A Caregiver

Caregiving Tips To Help Make Your Days Easier To Manage

When you’re a caregiver, it can feel like any conversation you have with the person you’re taking care of is a difficult conversation. Between trying to find the “perfect time” (e.g. not in between their favorite television show) to have the conversation, to having to work up the courage to talk about a variety of topics that can range from bad behavior to health issues; difficult conversations can feel like “par for the course” as a caregiver. But, can I tell you that no matter how many challenging conversations you have, you never feel like an expert. You never feel like, “this is an easy one” or “I can do this one with my eyes closed”. The only that I’ve learned that helps is experience. So, here are my “top five tips” to handling difficult conversations. Seek to be understood

The Most Valuable Lesson I’ve Learned From Caregiving: LIVE!!!!

I can’t believe I’m going to be Forty-Two on Wednesday. I’m so thankful for another year, another opportunity to get it right. I guess God still sees purpose in me cool.

As I think about this new chapter unfolding before me. I think about how my life has changed so much from my Thirties. I was Thirty-Seven when my father passed away, and my mom came to live with my sister and I. We were traveling and living life like any two single women with no children would. We were ready to take on the world. Then, it all changed in a matter of three hours. 

But, fast-forward to almost five years later and I feel more alive now then I did then. I never would’ve imagined being able to say that then. I thought my life, as I know it was over. I felt trapped, and couldn’t see the future in front of me. All I could see was fear, pain, and resentment. Thank goodness that was only False Evidence Appearing Real (FEAR).

Small Acts of Compassion Can Change The World

1000 Voices For Compassion

Compassion is such a loaded word. When you hear the word compassion, you always tend to think of the images that flash across our television screens at times of homelessness or poverty. There are so many moments that inspire us to help each other. But, what if I told you that compassion doesn’t just exist on such a large scale? What if I told you compassion can and needs to exist in our everyday life? Would you be able to recognize and implement it?

Day 4- It’s Time To Learn A New Way!

27 Days to Balance and Fulfillment in 2015

Happy Thursday! Or better yet, “Happy Friday-Eve”! The countdown is beginning to the weekend, and my first half-marathon!! I can’t wait to share that experience with you. I’m nervous and scared, but super excited. This is one of my “bucket list” items about to come true! Just remember, all things are possible. So, I have one question for you today. “How are you feeling the day after?”

Yesterday, we focused all of our energy and love on someone that means the world to us. It was our moment to wake up, and realize that if we can lavish that much love on someone else. There is no reason why; we can’t do that for ourselves. But, before we begin making plans about what we want to do. We have to look at where we’re at right now. Let’s do a little exercise.
