Sitting in Discomfort


The following was written by one of my mentors, Dr. Annette Childs. It is relevant for my life in general as well as my life as a caregiver.


“What hurts you today, will serve you later.”


“This quote is a great reminder that difficulties that may be center stage and all-consuming today will become a much smaller part of our story once we grow beyond them.

Let your wounds be your fuel. In the grand scheme of things, our darkest days always end up forcing us to find our inner light….And often the light we gain becomes a lamp for someone else.

Trust that if it hurts now…. it will serve later.”

-Dr. Ann
