Things have been intense and hectic around here as you can probably imagine from reading my earlier blog posts. My daughter is feeling much better but it is hard to relax when you’re always watching for high or low blood sugar because this can be devastating to a diabetic.
You want the best life possible for your child but then an illness, disease or chronic condition enters the picture and you find yourself hovering over them. Then you want to leave them alone so they can become the person they were meant to be without you controlling the show! It’s a precarious balance! You have states of fear, worry, hope, prayer, losing faith, believing, and wishing and sometimes this becomes a little overwhelming.
When life’s problems seem insurmountable, I have to remember to take a moment to feed my soul. You should too! You don’t have to make this into a major production. As a matter of fact, I blogged about just this last year. http://www.sueayers.com/3/post/2009/05/feed-your-soul.html Just find something that makes you exceptionally happy - art, exercise, spending time with someone else, going to a special place and then just do it. Feeding your soul will give you a semblance of balance when things that you can’t control spiral.
I’d forgotten that - I just needed to look back to where I was last year to remember!
