Welcome to all of my Moms who have kiddos with diabetes!
Today’s Question is: Are you striving for the happiness that comes after diabetes is under control, or after there’s a “cure”?
If so, you may be striving for a long time because…Guess what?
You are basing happiness on something outside yourself. You are chasing happiness.
Why not choose happiness now, no matter what? Why do you have to attain something to be happy? Perhaps if you were to choose to be happy now you would allow more space in your life to be successful.
What do I mean by that?
How do you define happiness for yourself? How do you define success?
Google states that success is “the accomplishment of an aim or purpose, an attainment of popularity or profit, a person or thing that achieves desired aims or attains prosperity.”
Happiness is defined as a “feeling of contentment, delight or being pleased.”
If success is the accomplishment of an aim, then be sure your aim is specific. If it’s vague and you don’t have clear definition of success it will be very difficult to obtain. If it’s a A1C number then remember when you get to that number happiness just doesn’t arrive. Since success isn’t interchangeable with happiness.
Many of my clients are successful but not happy. Their children have the A1C they’ve worked hard to get. Why aren’t they happy? They postponed the feeling happiness until they reached an A1C then realized that happiness is just caused by a thought. They still didn’t have a good thought about diabetes regardless of their A1C.
I’m hoping you realized that you don’t have to postpone feeling happiness until you are “successful” or reach a certain A1C.
It’s so not necessary.
Try success and happiness, side by side. Or happiness first, but never the other way around. Never success first happiness second.
