Power of Positivity word cloud

Words can build you up or they can tear you down. Caring for a loved one can test your inner strength. Thoughts trigger your emotions and can sometimes take you to a dark place. They can paralyze and defeat you before you even start your day if you let them.

Take a moment to be kind and speak in a loving and forgiving way to yourself. Use these phrases as a way to empower your spirit and reveal your true inner strengths.

Join me in Power of Positivity… where we turn negative words into positive ones that will guide you throughout the day.

• Give Yourself Grace

As a caregiver, life’s challenges throws us off balance. Emotions run high. Anger, resentment, and guilt are at the forefront, making it difficult for caregivers to stay positive as they navigate their care journey. It is important to give yourself permission to feel these and the many other emotions you experience during your journey.

Remember that you are doing your best with the emotional equipment you have, so embrace your loved one and focus on what you can control, not what you can’t. These emotions, too, will pass and what is left behind will be the special memories you share – so give yourself grace as often as you can and embrace your caregiving journey without guilt or regret!
