Experience is not what happens to you; it’s what you do with what happens to you. Aldous Huxley
My featured guest Thursday night on ‘Be A Healthy Caregiver’ on Blog Talk Radio was Lisa Fields from @PracticalWisdom. I knew she would be a dynamite guest, and that proved to be true because Lisa does offer us Practical Wisdom!
Doing live, Internet radio does come with its challenges, tonight was one of them as Lisa and I had a 5 to 10 second delay in our conversation with each other. The ‘delay’ in the conversation made it challenging for us, yet my trusted co-host, Diane Hawn was able to pitch in and help make the conversation and show go smoothly. I can’t thank them enough for their kindness and willingness to ‘go with the flow!’
As Caregivers, we often have to just go with the flow. Just 90 minutes before tonight radio show, TLO had a terrible experience while eating dinner. The esophagus and tumor does have its own schedule! AT 6:45 pm, we thought we were heading to the hospital, thankfully TLO’s trouble passed and he was able to rest peacefully: at 8:05 pm I am dealing with tech problems with a radio program. Just what is the big picture here?
Lisa, the great sport that she is simply said, “This is just like real life!” What a great dose of Practical Wisdom! Life is full of trials and tribulations: the calamity of tonight’s technology problems pales in comparison to the health issues that Caregivers and their Caree’s face on a daily basis. One minute we are thinking about calling 911, the next minute well…This IS just like real life!
We will be sure to schedule Lisa again for the show, because she does offer such wonderful ‘Practical Wisdom.’ She made a host feel safe and secure in the midst of turmoil with that gentle reminder of why it is important for all Caregivers to tell their story. I think we all need a dose of Practical Wisdom, I am so glad that I had mine this evening!
You see, we might have Cancer,
