MIAGD: Perspective

MIAGD: make it a great day


This morning, as I was preparing my coffee, and Cheerios with sliced strawberries, I remembered I had to take my fasting glucose reading.  

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!
