Through the years everybody encounters hardship. It’s part of life. The big question is: what do you do in these moments of need. Will you sit in a corner and feel sorry for yourself? Will you go on as if nothing is the matter? Or will you grab yourself by the shoulders and shake yourself up?
I have been the caregiver of my parents for 2 decades. While being an entrepreneur and aging myself as well this took a toll on me. At times I was so tired I couldn’t imagine feeling joyful and happy.
Yet I chose to shake myself up. It wasn’t easy, I must admit. The main obstacles were internal. This little voice in my head said: “You can’t do it”, “You’re too old”, “You’re a woman” or “Everybody has a hard time now and again”.
