How to Discover Your Life’s Purpose

How to Discover Your Life’s Purpose

by STEPHANIE ERICKSON

“I wish I could do more.”

“I feel so guilty that I find this so hard. How can people say they appreciate or feel caregiving is rewarding when I hate it!” Or how about, “I feel lost. I don’t know where to turn. What has my life become?” Comments like these are not uncommon for caregivers AND many of us non-caregivers! Caregiving is very challenging and can feel unrewarding and burdensome. It can also come with heartache, trauma and grief. So how is it that some caregivers see their role as fulfilling when so many feel lost? Joining me this week is Kim Chernecky, author of The Caregiver’s Journal: Preserving Precious Memories One Day at a Time, to talk about fulfilling one’s purpose in life and in caregiving.
