The time of day that I cherish the most, is the early morning. The house is quiet, with a stillness not found during the rest of the day. As I drink my coffee, it is a time to reflect on how this new day will go, as well as reflect on how the day before has gone.
When I was diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes, I learned that when food becomes your medicine, each morning, with every meal ahead of you, becomes a new chance, to either do better or celebrate the success of the day before. Healthy eating is a lifestyle and and each day is a chance to live that lifestyle to its fullest potential.
Every morning, I am optimistic that this day will be a good one. That there is the possibility to change the way you react to those around you and the way you approach problems. You can learn from how the day before went and begin with a fresh slate.
The mornings give you hope. I try to never bring the problems that occurred the day before to this new day. I leave the stress in the past and try to accept each day as an opportunity and a challenge. I take a deep breath, say a prayer and begin again.
Have a great weekend!
