Welcome to all of my Moms who have kiddos with diabetes:
Today’s question is: Do you ever want to choose a path of ease?
Choosing ease is a misconception when having a child with diabetes. Diabetes involves always balancing insulin and managing numbers. It may seem that you might have a choice but ease is never totally obtainable. Never totally comfortable.
Evolving on the other hand doesn’t feel comfortable either, any time change is required, it is rarely comfortable. It take courage to challenge some of your old beliefs to move forward. It takes courage to manage blood sugar levels of your child.
When you start to evolve there is something in you deep down that knows and can feel that it’s right. That the struggle is worth it. There’s a pull that gets your started, and then there’s a lot of work.
In order to evolve into the next best version of yourself, you’re going to have to struggle. I struggled, but it was worth it.
If your main goal in life is to be comfortable and at ease all of the time, it is going to be very hard for you to evolve and create new results. Evolving and comfort, usually don’t go hand in hand.
Ask yourself if you are seeking ease, comfort, safety, and security or are you seeking to evolve? There’s no right or wrong answer. No judgement. Just know your intention for yourself.
If you are choosing to evolve and set a stretch goal, that’s the moment your brain kick in and give you every reason why it’s a bad idea.
Your brain will tell you all the reasons that you shouldn’t do it and bring up all the doubts and fears. Your reason why you want to evolve needs to be compelling enough to get through all of the doubts and fears your brain brings up.
When you expect to be uncomfortable and you expect to have fear the change is managed from a place of power instead of powerless. As you evolve, it will become less and less uncomfortable. But in the beginning, plan for the discomfort.
Discomfort is the price of evolving and when it comes to diabetes, discomfort is the price of taking charge of diabetes instead of diabetes taking charge of you.
