This morning has not been a particularly good morning. For one my blood glucose as low, then I had to go to the next city to pick up my medications. On top of all that I had to go grocery shopping, all while trying to be a nice person. Well two out of three ain’t bad…right? My General Practitioner says my type 2 diabetes may be reversing itself, due to some better choices. The problem is at times I still require medication.
This puts me on a tightrope of managing my diabetes and over managing it. You see not everyday am I able to make sound food choices. It would be lovely to be able to afford foods that provide a better nutritional health. But this is the real world and processed foods are cheaper and much more convenient. Besides I have three other people to cook for, and none of them care for a more “organic” diet.
So it’s a slippery slope balancing these two worlds. Sadly most of the time they win, because of time and economic reasons. But every now and then I can slip in something nutritious. I’m not entirely sure why I’m mentioning with this, other than to say. Even the best of intentions often collides with the situations we face.
The thing to do is your best and to try and not let setbacks drown your will. Far too often I'd work toward achieving a goal. Only to face some adversity and then simply give up. But it doesn’t have to be that way. Resilient thinking and ending the self-hatred are two good steps in the right direction. Don’t let the obstacles block the vision of your goals. Do what you can and keep stepping forward.
