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.

"I am still determined to be cheerful and happy, in whatever situation I may be; for I have also learned from experience that the greater part of our happiness or misery depends upon our dispositions, and not upon our circumstances."
Martha Washington (1732 - 1802)
This is my new motto

Personal peace starts from within one's self, and eventually radiates outward.

I couldn't have said it any better. I know people that don't like how things are in their life , yet don't do a darn thing to change it!! They wait for someone else to do it for them , they will be wating along time!! I use this quote, if you keep doing the same thing over and over and expect a different out come each time, that is the defintion of insanity!! I think that Mark Twain said that.
