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.

I resolve to not make New Year’s
resolutions. (See what I did there?) I have, however, been doing some thinking
lately about what I’d like to see in my life during 2015. It’s no secret that
2014 was a difficult year for me. Looking back, it wasn’t awful, just not the
best. The issues that I’ve been dealing with have caused me to be more
introspective than normal. I have felt a sense of disconnect and restlessness
lately. I want to fix that.
I’ve recently read some about
mindful eating. In fact, the subject has popped in front of me enough that it
makes me wonder if some cosmic goofball is messing with me. I like the idea of
mindful eating. Basically, you only eat when you’re actually hungry instead of
regularly like we’ve all learned to do. I’m willing to give it a try. I hope it
works with my diabetes. I’m also hoping that my mindfulness will help me to
keep from eating mindlessly. That definitely needs to stop.
I also have a desire to step
away from social media a bit more and spend more time in my world. I believe
that my feelings of disconnect stem from spending too much time in the “out
there” and not enough time in my real life. It’s not going to be easy because I
have made so many awesome connections online through the DOC. I will work on
making things more balanced. The sucky thing is that you can’t surf the net and
only find the things that are pleasant. Too many things upset me, of late, and
I need to step back in order to keep from becoming depressed. I have no intention
of hiding my head in the sand, I just need to be more protective.
So here’s to a more mindful
year. I’m hopeful that things will improve for me and I wish nothing but the
best for each and every one of you. Let’s make this year a stellar one, shall
