I am NOT a doctor, dietician or expert. Do I know everything there is to know about diabetes? Heck no, but I do know what it’s like to live with it.

There is no denying that lately my
life with diabetes has been rough.I’ve
been trying really hard to keep my chin up and wade through the muck.Some days I succeed beautifully; other days
not so much.Over the weekend I came
across a quote that spoke to me; heck it screamed at me!Although this quote has absolutely nothing to
do with diabetes, it has everything to do with maintaining a good attitude and
never giving up the fight.The quote is
from Helen Keller.If you want to think
about dealing with adversity with style and grace, Helen is your woman.
“Be of good cheer.Do not think of
today’s failures, but of the success that may come tomorrow.You have set yourselves a difficult task, but
you will succeed if you persevere, and you will find a joy in overcoming obstacles.Remember, no effort that we make to attain
something beautiful is ever lost.What I
am looking for is not out there, it is in me.”
My beautiful goal is to live a
healthy life, despite my diabetes. I
need to remember that there is nothing “out there” that will help me attain
this goal better than what’s inside of me.I have the tools and I need to continue to use them.Thanks Helen, your words were needed and have
made a big difference to me.
