Twist

fractal-755899_640It's like you're doing the twist, anxious to get out and live your life. Well, really, you'd love to get to live a life, any one will do.

But the twists your day takes makes it feel like you must stay in this place, right here. You've got too much to do here, in this twist of fate called caregiving, to go out there.

The dance between life and death can be the worst twist you do, leaving your stomach in knots from the dizziness. One minute your caree feels okay, the next minute you almost see Death lurking around the corner.

It feels like life is over there. While you're over here.

The reality is that your caregiving role is life--it's the purest, most essential, most meaningful life.

That other life, the one with trips to the shopping mall, the turns at the restaurant, the twists on the open road, will wait for you. This life, this one which serves such a profound purpose, won't. It's okay that the other life waits while you serve this one.
