I was a freshman in high school in a computer class when I heard a specific Ludacris song for the first time.
The entire song was meaningful, but one lyric in particular stopped me in my tracks.
“It’s not the hand that you're dealt but how you’re playing ya cards.”
This lyric has stuck with me ever since because of how it relates to diabetes and life. It’s amazing how a few words rocked me to my CORE then, and they still do today.
Mental health awareness has been a huge topic of conversation in recent years. In my humble opinion, mental health surrounding life with diabetes is not talked about enough.
We all know living with Type 1 diabetes can be tricky, sucks, and none of us asked for it.
How’s that for candid?
But, at the end of the day, it doesn’t have to slow you down from what you want to do. There are professional athletes with diabetes.
There are musicians with diabetes.
Actors and actresses who are well known for living with diabetes successfully. People from every walk of life make up our community of people with diabetes.
One of my clients is an INSANE rock climber. Another is a marathon runner.
The biggest thing limiting you is YOUR OWN limiting beliefs. YOU CAN DO IT.
All it takes is making a plan and having diabetes be a thing in the background.
You are capable of so much more than you realize.
If you have something you want to pursue, go after it. If your blood sugars are all over the place, my team and I are here to help you.
