When I was first diagnosed with diabetes I asked "why me?". It turns out being a diabetic has put me in place and with people I would have never gotten to see or meet. I think life is all about how you look at things. Im not one of those people that goes around saying "the glass is half full". The key to life is going around being stoked to have a glass in the first place who cares if it has anything in it. If you look at diabetes like its a big kick in the face then its going to be. If you use diabetes to meet people, to inspire yourself to be something great, use it to prove to all those people that think that diabetes is a debilitating disease that there wrong. I promise you this. If you use diabetes to go around and meet people do something with your local JDRF or diabetes group you will meet someone probably more that one, They will inspire you more than you ever thought possible in a matter of minutes.
Far better is it to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure…than to rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy much nor suffer much, because they live in a gray twilight that knows not victory nor defeat. -Theodore Roosevelt
Thats something I just read from someone on this site. Just goes to prove inspiration is always there like water in your glass.
