Start your week with seeing the good in your day.
Be sure to look at yourself in the mirror today and say, “I love you.”
Make it happen.
Celebrate all the good this day brings your way.
Listen to their stories… good things may come from them. Everyone likes to be heard and seen.
With gratitude, notice the “miracles” taking place in your life today.
Sundowning seems to be a little more frequent now. Thankfully, the agitation hasn’t been too profound or hard to shift and refocus on other things the past few days. Grateful for that in so many ways.
Do and be your absolute best every day.
Love can be a healer.
Trust the process. It feels like he is adjusting better into the current routine and is feeling more “at home.” He enjoys most projects and the chores he has picked for himself to do. Hoping to find another activity or two he enjoys this week to help fill some of the time and get him out of the chair more frequently.
Take an inventory of your blessings today. You’ll likely find a few surprises.
A couple of new projects in the works that he should be able to help with. We think he’ll be able to help us draft a design for a new ramp for the back landing to help him navigate more safely into the back yard. He and T will work on that over the course of the next couple of weeks. He’s excited about being able to refill the bird feeder from the back landing as soon as the new post and platform are in place. He’ll help put that together as well. We just need to pick up the post and cut the platform this week. It should be ready to “plant” by the end of the week.
He’s enjoying watching the flowers bloom outside in his new planter box and was really surprised to see how much the new “salad” garden had grown in the last few days. Sure brought a smile to his face. The window herb garden is starting to sprout as well. He has really missed tending to his quarter acre garden of years past.
Needless to say, yesterday was a good day overall. A few blips on the screen, but no downward spiral.
You need to believe…… in you.
Still figuring a few things out.. and hoping we’re making some headway in creating new options and maintaining safe boundaries.
Name a few of the small joys today. Betting you’ll discover one or more of the big ones along the way.
We found it much easier to reframe and distract over the weekend. The fixation has lessened a little. Fingers crossed things will be a little smoother this week in that respect.
