So not long ago I found out I have diabetes. At first I was like, ok I’ll just have to take some insulin or whatever, but after reading up a bit on it it turns out you can actually die from this disease. Ok, so a little more serious than a cold to say the least.
Of course this was a bit of a shock, but life seems to throw these challenges at you from time to time. This along with my mother recently passing gave me a good reason to ask myself some big life questions.
Am I living the life I want to?
And if not, why not?
Turns out that these challenges have turned out to be a blessing as it has fueled my desire to possibly go back to school or redefine what I do with my life. How can I help more people? What am I deeply passionate about?
All great questions and I’m getting pretty close to having these answers. But would I have ever asked myself these questions without these recent life issues? Sure, sometime I probably would have, but I’m glad it happened now and not when I’m 80 years old.
Another hidden blessing is that I’ve always been interested in the health and healing world…and quite interested in the ‘live food’ (raw) movement for helping people with their issues. I’m going to increase my exercise levels and give this program a whirl (a light version of Dr Max Gerson’s therapy) and currently reading Dr Cousen’s book on a 21 day program to cure/reverse diabetes. I will also continue my practice of meditation and prayer, and in 3 months when I’m retested, I expect my numbers should be much better than the last time they were taken. Of course this is not medical advice to anyone reading this…I am not a doctor, nor do I play one on TV and I will be working with my doc on this issue. 2 thumbsup
Just wanted to post and remind those of you that might be reading this. All of life’s challenges can be a blessing if you choose to look at it from a different perspective.
Sometimes we just have to look through the clouds.
