“As you see him you will see yourself. As you treat him you will treat yourself. As you think of him you will think of yourself. Never forget this, for in him you will find yourself or lose yourself.” — ACIM
When it comes to being the guardian of an aging animal companion with health complications, even the most loving people have their limits.
The daily stresses and struggles our beloveds go through as they are aging can weigh on their caretakers, too.
Acknowledging this is essential.
Having compassion for ourselves is essential.
Practice Self Care while you are caring.
Choose Love every moment together.
But Never forget this: No matter the challenge you are facing together, there is always another way of seeing the circumstances. You are a Team.
Let’s begin by being loving & kind to ourselves; we cannot give to others what we do not have.
It begins within.
Our hearts and minds are One. If we want to give to others, in challenging times, we have to start with kindness and compassion with ourselves.
Life is flowing through us. We are One.
“So then, the relationship of self to other is the complete realization that loving yourself is impossible without loving everything defined as other than yourself.” ― Alan Wilson Watts
