In today’s podcast I want to share the importance of walking through each challenge with a grateful mindset, a patient mindset, a graceful mindset and one that allows you to fall and learn along the way
One of the biggest mistakes I see caregivers make (me included) is that we look at caregiving as the end in your life and you start believing that your goals and future plans will no longer be possible. Instead, it’s a road block and most of the time a huge road block with lots of pain and challenges and sometimes loss, but it doesn’t mean that you have to give up on your life goals your future dreams and yourself.
While you are going through your caregiver journey, you can and should keep your goals and dreams and just adjust them And then use this time to learn more about yourself and be ok with this journey.
The mindset shifts caregiver can adopt:
When you focus on this caregiving journey as a reward, a gift and learning opportunity.
I’m grateful that I can now reach this goal of retirement so can open the door to working full-time on my passion with The Caregiver Cup. To be honest, I need to walk this path to get here.
Again my friend, if you are feeling frustrated and struggling, I want you to know that it sucks and feels awful. But… keep going. Work on your mindset so you can release the negativity and get rid of the untruths that you mind is telling you. There is good in this hard journey. Not everyone can see this but I know you can if you choose to.
Registration is now open for the Caregiver Cup Circle. Join a community of caregivers who "get it" and most importantly life each other up.Support the show
