Push through… the end results will definitely be worth it.
Pushing through doesn’t always mean you’ll break through…however, if you choose to look at each “push through” as an accomplishment for the better, you’ll see more and more along your path.
Looking for the good isn’t Pollyanna-ish. It does open our eyes, minds and most importantly our hearts. Our journey may continue to have those rocky moments, however, with continued practice, we can certainly glean some knowledge that we can share with others come after us — or more importantly, share the highlights with those we are caring for in the moment.
Reflecting back what is going well and possibly lighten the heavy weights they are feeling with their confusion and frustration at not being able to accomplish, speak or share the depth of what they are experiencing.
“I see you are….”
“Thank you for being a part of our family, it’s so wonderful to spend a little one on one time with you.”
“I’m so happy to see that smile light up your being today.”
“I love having you help me fold the towels, or rinse the dishes.”
Even when the hour is late or the hour is early, look for that glimmer and push through until you meet it. The journey is worth it.
