“I let everything be as it is.” My radio show guest, author Coy F. Cross II, shared this quote by Adyashanti today. It might be a good quote to hang onto as you start or continue your caregiving journey. As a family caregiver, you can’t fix things. You aren’t necessarily called to play that role. Most of the time, we’re just supposed to be present for our loved one needing care. And that isn’t always easy.
But it doesn’t have to be difficult either. It just, well, is. “Life is our classroom. If we live consciously, life will present us the lessons we need for growth and we will see them as such.” (The Dhance, by Cross).
I wonder, what lessons about being a family caregiver have come your way recently? I’d love to hear from you.
