I have wrote about this subject is a previous post but thought more clarity on how people who truly love to write see the world. There are those who write about their daily lives while others are novelist etc. Then there are those of who write just because we love it. Our writings are based on years of experiences and changing views of the world. They are very seldom a fact based endeavor on what is currently going on in their lives. Normally its a combination of a variety of subjects with many twist and turns. I chuckle sometimes when people claim that they saw a post that revealed what is directly going on in my heart. Sometimes there are bits and pieces but rarely the whole story. For those of us who love to write finding the time to sit and write sometimes can be a struggle and highly frustrating. So the jigsaw changes and for that I am eternally grateful.
A caregivers life is one of the most challenging task someone can ever try and get through. It touches every emotion that a human can experience. The thing is as a caregiver you learn early on that in many ways your life is no longer yours. It’s extremely stressful being a caregiver and it does take an emotional and physical toll and that is just the way it is and the sooner you realize that the better. I know for me I can go several weeks and be ok with it. Then I have 2 or 3 days in which I feel I just can’t keep doing this day after day. Somehow you find the strength to keep putting one foot in front of the other. As I said to my wife the other day this is by far the biggest challenge I have ever faced. The reality of life for all of us is that one day life will come to an end. It happens to all of us. As a caregiver you have to realize that you are not in popularity contest. That might sound cold but when you are so devoted to this person you just have to make decisions that others will never understand. You see as a caregiver you get real leery about making plans because you simply never know what is going to happen next.
In a world that seems to be spiraling out of control we all get caught up in things that in the big picture of life really don’t matter. Sometimes we need to be reminded.
