I couldn’t sleep last night. My mind was racing with items from my To-Do list. When that happens, I often think about what I’m grateful for.
-My mom… check
-My life coach Michelle… check
And then out of nowhere
WHAT. Yes, I said it. Then I thought about it. Of course, I am.
I’m grateful for T1D because as a result, I:
Am who I am
Met SO many amazing people (JDRF & coaching)
Been more attune / sensitive to other’s medical conditions
Honed my organizational tendencies
Have cherished memories biking with my dad
Get to volunteer with my mom in the most unique way
Have the chance to help so many people like me
And then another thing hit me.
One of my 2022 goals is self-love. Working on believing in myself and loving myself totally and fully.
How can I love myself fully without loving diabetes? It’s a part of me.
The answer is, I can’t.
The good news is, love is a choice.
So, I decided last night while lying awake at 4 am, to love myself fully. ALL of me. Even my Diabetes.
I can not explain the shift. The feeling. To just love my diabetes.
You can always choose love.
Thanks for allowing me to share all of me
