Take a moment to look back at 2021. I realize that this may be difficult to do because, let’s face it, the COVID pandemic continues to impact our way of life. However, you cannot go forward without acknowledging where you came from or came out of. You made it through an eighteen-month challenge, ones in a lifetime experience. You have met some extraordinary people that may have changed your life. You are amazed at how strong, resilient, and creative you are. You learned how loved and appreciated you are. You realized how important it is to participate in something bigger than yourself. You realize life is to be enjoyed, not taken for granted, and that love conquers all.
Yes, it is time to reflect, revise, and reset. Take on an attitude of gratefulness. Be grateful for life: grateful to be blessed and be a blessing. We all want to be loved, appreciated, and recognized for our uniqueness and purpose. Gratefulness allows us to see things through the eyes of others. Gratitude allows us not to judge one another but realize that we are all a work in progress. Gratefulness will enable us to forgive because we were forgiven at some point in our lives. Gratitude reminds us that each day we wake up, we are given another day to try to get it right. So, why not begin today? After all, it is a new day, a new year.
Caregivers Outreach Mentorship Empowerment is here for you as you continue this journey of resetting and moving toward. Are you caring for someone with Cancer, Diabetes, COPD, MS, Alzheimer’s, disease, End-Stage Renal Disease, or any other illness or disabilities? What stage of the Caregivers sputum are you in? Do you foresee yourself caring for a loved one very shortly? Did you enter the caregivers’ role.? Have you cared for a loved one for over a year? Are you caring for an adult child or a disabled adult child? Did you recently take on the role of a family caregiver?
You all have something to give or receive. Join us as we connect, laugh, support, learn and encourage each other. Sign off from work, prepare dinner, and assure everyone is set up for the evening. Put your feet up, relax, exhale, and take some “Me Time” and “Let’s Talk” about the things that concern YOU!
