Decisions and Balance: The Misconceptions About Caregivers

Caregivers need love too! An oldie, but hopefully a goodie. Let’s keep the conversation going. Enjoy!

This post was born out a conversation I had with a really good friend. One of her friends, who she happens to work with was not responding to her calls or texts. It really hurt her feelings, and made her question their friendship. Especially, since another friend was able to speak with her. All of these things I’m sure sound like they might have an issue.Except, in this case there is a twist. Her friend is taking care of her sister, who has had a reoccurrence of breast cancer. She also happens to be the mother of a teenage son, and has a family that she works hard to support.

The Beginning of The Next Level

The Beginning of the Next Level

This has been an amazing weekend for me. I stepped out on faith and attended the Blogging While Brown Conference in Harlem this week. This conference was so amazing. Also, I need to mention I attended this by myself. Imagine “me” in the city that never sleeps, by myself without any cares in the world. It was amazing ☺. (Side note: All caregivers need a break by themselves. It’s an opportunity to recharge and do the things you want to do for you. That’s critical to the caregiver experience. You have to have a life too!!! Now back to our regularly scheduled post ☺)

Standing In My Truth

Stand in Truth

In order to move forward and get better. You have to be willing to own the areas of yourself that need to be fixed. So, I’m starting this out by admitting, “I’m broken”.

I’m “broken”, and at times this causes me to lash out at the people I love. Especially, in times of high emotional pressure. This isn’t a new discovery, this is just my new way of dealing with it. I’m going to stand in it,versus trying to act like it doesn’t exist.

Following Through On The Promise

Following Through ON The Promise

Do you ever have those days where you feel like the world is on your shoulders? You are emotionally “full”, and the addition of more thing is going to cause your “emotional bridge” to break. I’m having one of those days today.

 

I have been running all day. Work was hectic, but fun! Then, I drive home to begin my “side jobs”. Tonight, I’m a chauffeur,grocery shopper, and errand runner :).

Budweiser & Bull Shit : Sorry, I got to call it like I see it :)

Budwiser & Bull Shit

This picture says it all right now! I’m going to take a little departure from our regularly scheduled program to talk about dating :). In particular, my journey on this road to love. I took a break from dating after my Dad passed to get myself together, and focus on my family. But, recently I decided to jump back in. I finally feel ready to open myself up to love, and I’m really enjoying this feeling. I just am not enjoying some of the dates and/or people, I’m meeting along the way.
