We Break for Fall: What Will You Drop?

Nature drops at the right time. We can, too.

In autumn, the trees drop their leaves so they’re ready for what’s next. So, today, which ongoing argument or disagreement (it could be the one you have with yourself) will you drop? Which service or friendship, which makes more problems than solutions, will you drop?

When you drop what no longer serves you, you create room for what will.

Tell us what you’ll drop for a chance to win one of a gift check for a Butterball turkey.

About Denise Brown

I began working with family caregivers in 1990 and launched CareGiving.com in 1996 to help and support them. Through my blog, I share words of comfort and offer coping strategies and tips. I also write opinion pieces about recent research, community programs and media coverage of caregiving issues. I've written several caregiving books, including "The Caregiving Years, Six Stages to a Meaningful Journey," "Take Comfort, Reflections of Hope for Caregivers" and "After Caregiving Ends, A Guide to Beginning Again." You can purchase my books and schedule a coaching call with me in our store.

    How fun! And what great timing! I popped over to grab your link as I wrote about you and the grand #ElderCareChat and some of the great de-stress ideas I took away and here you are with a fun “Break for Fall” to share as well. It’ll be up tomorrow. As for me, I am “letting go” of some of the snail mail holiday chores – passing them on to my senior mom with much appreciation. She enjoys it and loves being a part of the holiday fun, so it’s a double blessing. Thanks again for another great #ElderCareChat.

    I have spent the past three years especially dropping a lot of perceived “shoulds” and perceived societal expectations. I’ve been dropping many of the pressures I’ve put on myself and focusing on just Be-ing. Last year I dropped our basic cable and our TV, which has resulted in a better use of my time and has also helped reduce some of my partner’s anxieties. As I continue to adjust to my partner’s world and to my role in it, I am working to drop some of my own inhibitions when it comes to communicating as a caregiver with the “outside world.”
