In life, we all strive to be the best we can be. In every career, there is always room for improvement and growth. When you work in the field of aging, personal development and spiritual development are two best ways that can promote growth from one level to another. The physical part of caregiving is something you can learn in an instant or overnight. But shaping our lives and preparing ourselves to be the best we can be, takes time, commitment, and dedication. It is nurturing inwardly. The standard we set for ourselves, our morals and to be ethical in our words and deeds is so vital and has to be a part of our life on a daily basis. It is not something we have to learn, it is already a part of us.
While anyone can be trained to be a caregiver, we cannot train anyone to be caring, loving, compassionate, trustworthy, honest, and patient, those comes from within. Our attitude, personality, our demeanor, and our life should speak volume. It requires changing of our mindset. We set goals realistically and try to achieve that and monitor our growth.
I am not the same person as I was fifteen years ago. I have discovered that it does take a special person to work in the field of aging, it has nothing to do with being too educated, but simply to have a heart for people and to understand that we are dealing with human needs, both physical and psychological.
If we cannot cope with our own situation, it will be very difficult to go deal with someone else. To be truthful in every little thing, it will amount to greater things. To be the best you can be, means you are responsible, ethical, professional, loyal, sincere, trustworthy, and someone people can look up and will be impressed on how you live your life, how you conduct your business, and how you can empower and inspire others as well. We work on ourselves daily. Are you willing to move from one level to another? Only if you have an open mind, all the possibilities will be open to you as well.

Caring for others and assisting families and their loved is a high calling. To know the reason why you are doing something and the fulfillment of making a difference in the lives of those you touched is my heart and passion. It is not about getting a paycheck or because it is the only thing available you can do, but knowing deep down in your heart that you put in energy, time, compassion and love to those that you cared for. To know that you are needed, to feel you are wanted, to give one hundred percent of yourself to others is a blessing itself. At the end of the day, you feel a peace of mind and happiness that you have touched a soul that needs your loving touch.
