MIAGD: make it a great day
My first thought, “Ahhh, I have to take my blood sugar.”
For some reason, I laid down the knife and the sacrificed strawberry, and looked outside. I’ve been sticking my self with a needle for nearly a decade. I’ve also had to administer self-inflicted needles into my side for additional medication to treat my diabetes.
It occurred to me that I was extremely fortunate to stick myself with a needle, whether to test my blood sugar, or to give myself a shot. There are many folks who, for whatever reason, are not blessed with these medical luxuries/necessities.
I changed my original thought to, “I get to take my blood sugar reading.”
I’m lucky I get to do this.
I’m blessed I get to do this.
Instead of, “I have to do the laundry, “I need to say, “I get to do the laundry.”
Yeh, that’s a stretch.
But, I strongly believe it is important to feed our minds with the most healthy thoughts, and to establish our attitudes with the best words to keep us focused.
Make it a great day, Folks!
