Celebrations look different now as a Caregiver. Learning and finding new ways to find joy and gratitude takes a bit of time and a mindset shift.
When life is challenging and your loved one is sick, you sometimes have to accept that things will be different. But, you don’t have to stop celebrating. You just have to celebrate them differently. Meaning making them special, with small moments of joy with simplicity.
As you and I move into the Holidays, my hope is that you think differently about celebrations and your expectations.
You have to come to the reality that you will have to adapt and change. Your loved one is not doing this on purpose. Their illness or disease is holding them back. I remember being so angry and resentful instead of just accepting the reality of this season. It’s ok to have a low key birthday, anniversary, Christmas, New Years Eve, other holidays, etc.
Some of our best celebrations and memories are just simple ones. The small moments together. Those are the ones we remember the most and it brings us the most joy.
