Tell Us: What Advice Would You Give Your Before-Caregiving Self?

Just about every day, I see a celebrity or blogger post their answers to this question, "What advice would you give your 21-year-old self?"

Certainly, the turning of time changes us. As the years pass, we grow into wiser beings. I also know that intense experiences, like caregiving, leave their mark. We gain insights and perspectives that can help us move through life with more answers than questions.

So, I'd love to know: What advice would you give to your before-caregiving self? What do you know now that you wish you knew then?
