Two things on my mind lately? Hmmm.... That's a little hard cause I have sooooo many things running through my mind right now. hehehe
Diabetic: I am reveling in the thrill of feeling better than I have in way too many years---20 to be exact! The end of February it was suggested to me that I go temporarily with a j-tube for most of my nutrition needs and see if we could get control of my bg any better. I have had severe gastroparesis for almost 30 years now and my stomach wasn't holding much in it most of the time. I agreed, but I was scared to death! Well, after 8 weeks with the j-tube my hyper #s are down by 11%, my hypo #s are down by 17%, my close to range #s are up 7%, and my in range #s are up 8%. I am ecstatic!!!!!!
Non-diabetic: About 3 years ago I began focusing on self-improvement--you know figuring out WHO you want to become ultimately in order to create the lifestyle and reality you truly want and then deserve. Recently I have stepped up the momentum and am feeling pretty good about the progress I have made this year already! I have discovered characteristics and actions in my self that are not compatible with who I want to be and the values THAT person will have. So, I have tons of work ahead, but it is fun, stressful, scary, exciting, big, and growing to a new level each and every day.
I can't provide the full feelings of gratitude that I feel for the wonderful insights, beauty, and support system that are now part of my daily life. Nor can I ever allow the option of contentment where I am at to become a deterrent to my growth and progress until the day I can stand before my Maker and He can see I have achieved at least some of the potential He planned for me. Not that I can change the past, but I wish I had had the opportunities in my life that have brought me around recently to the understand of my own worth and potential. Where I could have been. But, I am happy where I am because I am in motion and moving forward toward a someone of extraordinary purpose!
