"Courageous care partners recharge with self-care, striving for peaceful pinnacles
in patience, persistence, and positive 
changes, knowing when to conquer and when to comfort."

“You don't get older, you get better.” —Shirley Bassey


Edward Creagan, M.D., an oncologist at Mayo Clinic, Rochester, Minn. says,

“People who are more resilient have the ability to say to themselves,

‘OK, this bad thing happened, and I can either dwell on it or I can learn from it.’

Think of resiliency as emotional buoyancy.

Like the volleyball pushed under the water in the pool,

you will not only rise and float,

but can do so with re-emergent force.”


Life Lesson: “Don't despair, despair suggests you are in total control and know what is coming. You don't—surrender to events with hope.”—Alain de Botton
