THE MOMENT YOU ARE READY TO QUIT IS USUALLY THE MOMENT RIGHT BEFORE A MIRACLE HAPPENS.

NEVER GIVE UP

LIFE IS NOT ABOUT WAITING FOR THE STORM TO PASS....

IT IS ABOUT LEARNING TO DANCE IN THE RAIN.

mish,  I hope all of us are "dancing as fast as we can"  while we find ourselves in the rain!

Look for the sunshine in your day!

Happy Holiday to all!

When you stop chasing the wrong things,

you give the right things time to catch you

I am human;

I make mistakes

I have been hurt

I learn,

I fall

I rise

I am alive!

I am what I am

Perfect or otherwise

I am thankful for this life.

Don't cry over the past

It is gone

Don't stress about the future

it has not  arrived

Live in the present

and make it

BEAUTIFUL

May I add:  

Find the Sunshine in your day!  It's a step beyond "stop to smell the roses". 


 

It's recognizing that the beauty and fragrance of the rose is a blessing that we are thankful for.   


 

The "Sunshine" is Positive and what helps us get through our day. 


 

Find yours!  Geegee

Be open minded about everything in life, at risk of missing something vitally important. not everything is obvious nor has immediate explanation.

A good reminder for us patients.  We can find something beautiful in each day. 

This brings to mind the philosophy of "Creating Moments of Joy" by Jolene Brackey.

Feelings are neither good good nor bad, right or wrong.

Feelings just are.

You need not, and should not judge your feelings.

 

-Healthy perspectives on emotions

Creating Moments of Joy is directed towards caregivers of dementia patients.  It's about giving up expectations of what used to be and recognizing new moments that can be joyful in the life of the LO.  It's a good concept for patients to consider.

I was walking around one of the local supermarkets and saw the following Proverb on a coffee mug: "Just when the caterpillar thought that the world was over, he became a butterfly." 

 

Metaphorically, I feel as though I am that butterfly, after getting my Alzheimer's diagnosis, and I am living each day to the fullest with family and friends in this new chapter/phase of my life.

Any other butterfly's out there?

That's a good way of looking at the new development in our lives, Sandy.

I'm trying to give up expectations of my old life and look forward to the experiences of my new life.

I love that one Sandy. I love it when we all share our thoughts or sayings.

I think we are all butterflies, always evolving

God didn't promise days without pain

Laughter without sorrow

sun without rain.

But he did promise

strength for the day

comfort for the tears

and light to find the way

Life is like a camera:

Just focus on what is important.

Capture the good times

develop from the negatives and if things don't turn out the way you want-

Take another shot!

Years from now, you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do

than by the things you did do.

So throw off your bow lines-

Sail away from the safe harbor.

Catch the trade winds in your sail.

I fill myself with love and share it with the world,

How others treat me is THEIR karma, THEIR path;

How I respond is MINE.

Never take a person for granted

Hold every person dear to your heart

because you might wake up one day and realize that you might have lost a

Diamond

while you were too busy collecting stones.
