43 Years of Love Dementia Talks

43 Years ago Chrisy and I were married.  We met in May and after a short (very short) engagement we were married.  I'm sure many people doubted it would last, but through all the challenges ours is still a marriage based on deep love and respect.

Coping Mechanism 4a – Finding What Brings You Joy Dementia Talks

To find purpose, we need to search inwardly.  Looking inwardly or taking an honest assessment of ourselves is very challenging. In fact, it is probably the most important thing that should guide you through the rest of the steps that you will use to find purpose. There are several key items that you can do… all after you have looked inwardly and gotten a good assessment of yourself and where you’re at. Do it without judgment. BUT FIRST… Focus on what you have and what brings you joy. So many people, when they think that they need to have purpose, think they need to start something new or they need to learn a whole new skill set. Or worse, they find something that is clearly outside of their wheelhouse. Going outside of your abilities or comfort zone and finding something else to bring you joy is unfortunately going to be a tremendous waste of time and send you in the wrong direction. Finding your purpose is about: Looking at what you have now. Where you are now? What you can do now?

I Don't Have To Fake It Dementia Talks

Life gets so complicated when we have to force ourselves to appear to be in a better state of mind or health than we are.  We have all learned to do this, but in the end we are only hurting ourselves.  Having friends you can be honest with makes life so much richer.  That doesn't mean that if your not doing well that it's OK to be a Debbie downer, no, we are all still responsible for our own happiness.  So be honest, don't fake it, but be positive and find a way to up-lift others in the process.  That the real meaning of "Fake It Till You Make It"  Make that part of your purpose.   Find out more on "Finding Your Purpose" on WanderingLite.com  #fakingit#dementia#livingpositively — Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/ted-at-wanderinglite/support
