Share some good times today!
Shift the dynamics of the moment, if you can, by finding something that will change the mood of the moment to a more positive direction. A smile, a wink of the eye, even a small laugh can make a difference in the moment. Repeat as needed.
Which of the many miracles you’ll experience today will you remember the most?
Always remember, that the good you see in others exists in you.
What will bring you joy today?
Things are going to take a twist or a turn or a downright nosedive into the abyss some days. More often than not, a distraction will shift the dynamics of the moment, and the mood will likely sort out in a positive fashion.
IDEAS: Switch the TV channel, turn on some music, make a phone call, make or provide a snack or treat — go for a walk or take a drive. Just do something different even if it’s just for 5 minutes and find some joy in what is going right in the moment. This applies to everyone in the house!
Make the best of the moments today brings your way.
Pause frequently today and take some time to reflect.
Warm a heart today
Allow space. Some days they just need the room to process whatever it is that is going on inside. It may not be easy to watch, but as long as they are safe let the processing move forward. And don’t forget to BREATHE!
Be the difference in someone’s day!
Share a little “light” with a friend today.
Once again it was a “Find something good in every day” kind of day. Things can derail quickly at times. What is going well — have them put a name to it if they can. As a caregiver you need to do the same – and vocalize it. Shifting the dynamics in the moment can put a different spin on the entire direction things were headed and where the day goes from that moment. Repeat as needed.
