I return to the spirit of the first ezine I released in 2016 which focused on the power of words. Important then and important now.
Word. A simple f-o-u-r letter word that can carry pleasure or a pinch.
How, when, why and which word we use matters.
Every time. Kipling said “Words are the most powerful medicine known to man.”
So I ask , what words and thoughts are floating around your brain? Are they positive? Affirming? Energizing ? Or are they negative, self doubting, depleting?
We, as professionals use words to uplift, heal, create and engage.
As we c-e-l-e-b-r-a-t-e our profession this week, make sure that you are “feeding” yourself positive words. Words that lift you UP to a higher ground. There is plenty of negativity to go around however it does not serve us. It depletes us. We need to keep ourselves and team members on track taking notice what words are being used and how we are using them. Positive statements can become our fuel. Motivation for ourselves. Our teams. Our services.
January 22-28,2017 is Activity Professional Week.
How will honor yourself, your team and the profession?
In focused and persistent pursuit of creating elder care services that know NO boundaries, only possibilities
Join me on this journey and TOGETHER let us create positive change in eldercare.
I encourage you to reflect, refresh and renew yourself after all you cannot pour out care from an empty cup. Keep your caregiving cup filled. Let others add to your cup.
