L for Let Go

Hello and Welcome to my sixth attempt at the AtoZ blogging challenge.
My theme this year is Caring for the Caregiver. My posts are based on my experience and are not meant to be a comprehensive guide on the subject. I would love to hear your experiences..
You can catch up with my previous posts here.
With each post, I am sharing a sketch that I have done as a means for stress busting.

Let Go

This post may end up being philosophical.. Now that we have become care givers for our elders, its important to accept this responsibility and not complain about it. Setting aside ego, grudges and discontent will go a long way in helping our ‘wards’ and helping ourselves too. Letting go of such mental baggage has made it easier for me to accept the circumstances and get on with the task at hand. 

Mind you, its not easy. Begin with something small or easy. Small wins at a time. 

Have you had to had to let go as part of care giving? 

There is no one size fits all solution. 
Every family has to find something that suits them best. 
At best, posts such as mine will inspire a family to come up with their unique workable plan.

And my sketch for the day is inspired by these glorious birds that I see very often on my morning walks on the tekdi. Usually  we see one or two Peacocks perched on the tree. 

See you tomorrow folks.
Stay happy!
