Who controls your life and happiness ?
Gifts should never be taken for granted.
We have a very unique gift as humans, a gift that we sometimes take for granted, one which can, if we utilize it more often, bring us much closer to a peaceful state of mind.
That gift is the Freedom of Choice.
The ability to choose, to decide on a course of action concerning virtually everything pertaining to ourselves and our lives.
We are not locked into stressful situations or lifestyles, we choose to stay the course for various reasons, some justifiable, others not.
We are responsible for both our own sanity and self happiness, no one else, yet at times, we believe that others are, or we empower others with that responsibility, yet we shoulder the burden of unhappiness that can come as a result of this.
The words, I could've, would've and should've become excuses for the reason that I didn't do that which was supposed to be done for me, by me.
Time wasted is time lost, an opportunity missed may not present itself again, and if so, maybe not in the same form or manner as before.
In short, take control of that which you have complete control of, your life, your sanity and your happiness.
Everything else will follow suit and eventually fall in line.
Manage your diabetes, manage your life.
