|"It is never too late to be what you might have been." George Eliot|
Those of us in the role of caregivers may feel it is too late to do what we wanted to do in life, too late to achieve goals or be all we can be; but the above quote is true: it is never too late. There are in life postponements, what may seem like delays in our journey, but I think those delays are carefully crafted situations to help us be all we can be. Caregiving is one of those situations. It is important to us as caregivers that we do not lose ourselves in the process of caregiving or become too overwhelmed by the responsibilities to consider what there is about this situation that can teach us yet another thing we need to learn -- about life, about how to be fully ourselves. The lessons are within each situation -- if we are open to receive them. What might be your lesson within this caregiving situation? What might there be about this situation that can help you be more fully what you were meant to be?
