For Native Americans the symbol of courage is the morning star because it is the brightest star in the sky at dawn. Caregivers know too well the hours of early dawn, the sleepless time when our fears grow larger than life itself. Somehow with each breaking dawn caregivers bury those fears to face another day.
Courage is about intentional choices: courage to stick up for your loved one and for yourself; courage to define your own version of success instead of trying to live up to someone else’s version because YOU are in the room, YOU are facing the crisis and YOU are doing your very best.
The monthly podcast series is featured on Caregiving.com with Denise Brown. We focus our discussion on how caregivers could change their perspectives on many caregiving topics to enable and empower us to be change leaders for ourselves and for others who will follow in our footsteps.
We continue to find opportunities to find grace within our role as caregivers.
