We spoke about the fear we have of change, how resistance to change makes the change really difficult and that we can choose the perspective about change which best helps us. Ellen shared a piece of advice about managing our goals, especially when we feel the change we want to accomplish is taking too long: Intention, Attention and No Tension. Meaning, we have to let go of controlling the outcome and let in what happens. (You can learn more about this concept, discussed in the book, The Passion Test, here.)
We know that change is constant in life. And, in a caregiving life, change is a given. Do you feel that you’ve accepted that changes brought into your life because of caregiving? How do many manage the knowledge that tomorrow may be very different (and much more difficult) than today?
