Welcome to all of my Moms who have kiddos with diabetes!
Today’s Question is: Have you accepted diabetes as part of your life?
What if you accepted diabetes like you would have chosen it? What if you stopped blaming diabetes and being a victim of it? What do you think would change in your life?
For me everything changed. I gave myself permission to choose happiness. I gave myself permission to believe that diabetes was an opportunity for all of us to become more…serve more, have more insight, grow more, and even enjoy more.
However, giving yourself permission to accept diabetes doesn’t just magically change your world. It truly takes effort, because if you want a different result in your life you have to practice different thoughts. You have to practice feeling different emotions. Yes it takes practice, it takes effort and it will be uncomfortable.
The definition of acceptance is “the action of consenting.” It means living in every moment with every emotion, with everything that’s happened to you and saying that you consent to it all. It means that you would choose it.
At first, I was like that’s just crazy, “Who would choose diabetes?” No one. But what if I could truly believe that I would choose it and then believe that all the emotions, the highs, the lows, (literally and emotionally) could serve me to be a better mom, a better person.
Once I got to the point that just maybe diabetes made me a better mom then my lens on the world opened up. It was like a weight was lifted. I didn’t have to hate diabetes. I didn’t have to live my life as a victim. I no longer had to argue with what was. I no longer had to believe that life should be different. No longer believed life would be better without diabetes.
What if you could accept diabetes as something you would choose? Consider accepting all the facts in your life, all the circumstances in your life that you don’t have the ability to change, to consent to all those things, to accept all those things.
How willing are you to accept diabetes as something you would choose? How willing are you to believe that by the end of 2020 you could be living a life that you create on purpose?
Acceptance requires effort. It requires effort to believe. It requires effort to let go of all the anger and contrasting thoughts. That’s true for our past and present, but if you can accept everything that happened, you will get better at accepting, and you will start to accept the things you can’t yet believe.
Accepting is not giving up. It’s not believing that life in the future will be better. It’s using effort to make that future life better. It’s doing the work on yourself to make your life better.
The present is only here to teach you what you need to know and believing that the future is your property is essential. Taking ownership of your future, your property, can happen.
All you have to do is claim your future and accept that anything you want is possible. Anything you have the power to imagine, you have the power to create in your life. The minute you genuinely, truly accept it, it will be as good as done. I promise you this.
Put effort into consenting, into accepting diabetes and see what you can create in your life.
