Today I went to Web MD to see if I could find a reason for why I've been so overly tired this week. After answering a series of questions, the site suggested the highest probability was that it was something viral. That kind of surprised me because I always assume that anything wrong with me is diabetes related. Always.
That made we realize that I've defined my whole life as diabetic. All roads lead to diabetes in my mind. I'm thinking that it's a habit that I need to turn around. I've given this condition too much power over my life. I know that Web MD is not the same as consulting a doctor, but it really made me think about my attitude about my health.
Intuitively I really feel that there is a mind/body connection regarding my health. People have always referred to me as “sweet”. I've even been called “too sweet”. Well, now my whole life revolves around sugar. Isn't that ironic? I'm thinking maybe not. I happen to believe that thoughts become things. Maybe I believed I was too sweet and so I became that.
I keep going back to my favorite book by Louise L Hay, You Can Heal Your Life. She tells us that what we believe about ourselves is what we create. If I keep thinking, “Has the diabetes caused this? Or “How's this going to affect my diabetes?”, I can be pretty sure that if I blame it on it, I'm creating that result. Sometimes our thinking is so ingrained in us that we don't really realize we're doing it. Think about it though. If we change our thoughts we can change our circumstances. We can create a better result.
I'm going to start saying this affirmation to myself every day.
“I love and approve of myself. My blood sugar always hovers around 140 or below. I feel rested. I have energy to do everything I want to do. Joy fills my heart. Success follows me at every turn. And so it is.”
What is your attitude about diabetes?
Thanks for reading.
