We begin our next month in our Caregiving Happiness Project today!

Our action for this month is Learn.

We have to figure out so much during caregiving that learning can feel like the last thing we want to do. I believe our ability to learn keeps us young. This month, what can you learn? You might commit to learning a skill which will help you achieve a goal. You may learn something about your caree or about yourself. Learning is about gaining wisdom that helps make your days better. What will you learn?

Happiness Project Members: Tell us what you’ll go in our Forum.

(If you haven’t already, be sure to sign up for our Caregiving Happiness Project by taking a simple survey.)

About Denise

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.

We have Joann Fabrics near us and I purchased a few yards of material after picking out an EASY pattern for a top and the words of the woman who cut the fabric: Take your time! was wisdom… Read more »
