So many elders, so little time

As I continue to build my business, one customer at a time, I continue to contemplate and appreciate the fact that I found something in life (besides writing and blogging) that I truly love to do. As I get to know each individual, I challenge myself to find something special about that person that I like and something that we can build a future on.

Take Audrey for instance. ImageShe and I both share a deep love for God and we are able to reveal our beliefs with one another. We have such deep seeded conversations that in the end bring us that much closer together.

Each person has something that is special to them. Just as Bernie Siegel, famous author of Love, Medicine and Miracles, stated one time, if you look around, you can find something special about each person. I’ve discovered that if you simply pay attention, you can easily detect something that will connect you to each patient or client; a bond that is forged is hard to break.

I look forward to each client. It is not easy at first though. Each is a bit skeptical about the other – for good reason, too. In this day and age there are so many individuals that cannot be trusted. I try to put myself in the place of each of my elders; wondering what it must be like to trust someone with their life – someone they just met.

If the person is afraid, it may come out in emotional outbursts. Patience is the name of the game! If you put your best foot forward, you will win in the end.

It is not hard to be kind – you just have to want to be kind. It is always great to keep in mind, too, With Age Comes Respect!
