“Life’s Journey” does indeed lead us down unexpected paths… In the ideal world I would have everything anticipated, planned, and organized. However, the reality of my world is that unexpected situations happen constantly. Then, flexibility, adaptability, and a sense of humor become my most useful tools of the day.
For any of us, the more we “allow” ourselves to flow with changing needs the more successful we’ll be in the long run. Being truly present to what life is offering us right now reveals paths to new opportunities. For me, the best opportunities in life usually appear right alongside some of my greatest challenges.
New opportunities disguised as challenges show up often when you’re the caregiver for a family member. But take heart, you are not alone. Join me in this “Life’s Journey” blog as we travel down those unexpected paths… together we’ll build new skills, explore creative solutions, take care of ourselves, provide loving assistance to family members, and retain that all important sense of humor.
