Trust the journey

Isn't it amazing how life unfolds in ways we never expected? What we once thought was essential becomes a memory, and we discover new passions and loves we never imagined. Life's unpredictable paths often lead us to the most beautiful destinations. Instead of fearing the unknown, let's embrace it with faith and curiosity. Every twist and turn brings lessons that shape us. Trust in the journey, for it's in these unexpected adventures that we find our true selves and our greatest joys. What's a surprising twist in your journey that brought you unexpected happiness? Share your story below!

Also, as a way to better share advice with you all, I make video responses to your mental health questions.

The last video I made was about how to stop the feeling of meaninglessness at work. If this sounds relevant to you, you can check out the video here:

Otherwise, if you have any questions about mental health, please post in my group and I will try to make a video response specifically for you.

~ Thanks to all. Thanks for all. ~

Speaking of thanks for all, I was hoping we could acknowledge everyone who comments below. I know it seems like a small gesture, but many people here have never opened up to anyone before and being open and honest with strangers can be quite scary. So, if we could show our gratitude by giving their comment a simple reply or heart, I’m sure they would really appreciate your team support. What do you say?

Motivational Monday: We Are So Much More

”We do not have to be defined by our illness. We are much more than our symptoms.“- Dr. Brent Shaefer

It’s time that we accept the fact that we are so much more than diabetes. We are so much more than what we're going through.

One way to embrace this is by focusing on our other strengths, talents, and passions that make us unique individuals beyond our illness.

We can also surround ourselves with people who support and uplift us, reminding us of our value and worth beyond our diabetes.

It’s important to remember that our illness does not define us and we have the power to define ourselves and our lives.

Waiting for perfection

Waiting for perfection is like chasing a mirage in the desert—no matter how far we go, it always seems just out of reach. Life is beautifully imperfect, filled with ups and downs, twists and turns. Embracing its imperfections allows us to find joy in the journey rather than waiting for an elusive "perfect" moment that may never come. Every moment offers an opportunity for growth, learning, and gratitude. So let's savor the sweetness of life, imperfections and all, and make the most of each precious moment we're given. What's one imperfectly perfect thing you're grateful for today? Share below!

Also, as a way to better share advice with you all, I make video responses to your mental health questions.

The last video I made was about what to do when you fear being alone. If this sounds relevant to you, you can check out the video here:

"Here" versus "There"

Stress often comes from being "here" while wanting to be "there." This tension creates mental and emotional conflict, pulling us away from fully experiencing the present. When we fixate on future goals or idealized scenarios, we miss out on the small joys and progress in our current situation. To reduce this stress, practice mindfulness and acceptance. Mindfulness keeps us present, helping us observe our thoughts and feelings without judgment. Acceptance involves embracing our current reality, recognizing its value and purpose. By appreciating the now, we transform our relationship with stress and find peace in the journey, not just the destination. Do you find yourself wanting to be "there" instead of "here"? What do you do when this stress gets to be too much?
