DIABETES and HAPPINESS
Welcome to all of my Moms who have a child with diabetes.
Today’s Question: Do you spend days wishing you could just be happy?
Guess what? There is no happiness that we are going to find in our future. That is…that we don’t already have access to right now. Happiness comes from a thought. A thought about something that makes you happy.
So if happiness comes from a thought, which is just a sentence in our brain, then what is stopping us from creating happiness right now. Our thoughts! Correct!
What is it that stops us from creating happiness? For me it’s that I don’t want to be happy all the time. I want to be sad when something terrible happens. I want to be sad or disappointed when I don’t get the results I’ve been working towards.
However, I understand that I don’t want happiness at those points. I choose to be sad. I like to live my life with intention so choosing my emotion is the best way I know how. Also that means I get to choose happiness with intention, as well. Remember true happiness can only come from a thought that’s believable. If you just tell yourself a thought that you’d like to believe, it can’t create true happiness. It’s a process.
However, if you are working on thoughts you’d like to believe, try a few out, and work through a process of changing your brain so that thought becomes believable. First become aware of what thoughts are creating which results. Second understand that those thoughts are optional and slowly change your thought process to incorporate the new thought. Third your brain becomes rewired to believe that new thought.
The process doesn’t happen overnight. It takes time and dedication. It takes being uncomfortable, but it is so worth the effort. Knowing that you can choose how you think about a situation is truly powerful. Knowing that it’s up to you to decide, is the best news ever.
You get to decide how you want diabetes to impact your life. You get to choose which thoughts serve you and which don’t.
