Are you finding joy in your Alzheimer’s or dementia journey? I think there’s a misconception that finding joy in your journey means that you will have an overall joyful journey. That’s definitely not the case.
During my 10-year Alzheimer’s journey, I learned that it was possible to find joy in small ways throughout my days that added up to give me long-lasting feelings of joy. Those moments of joy didn’t negate the feelings of sadness, grief, or heartache, but they did make me feel better overall and helped me cope with what I was going through.
