It's World Diabetes Day today. I had the displeasure of being diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes in 2016.

I have a tattoo of a daisy with the word “Believe” crafted into the stem on my ankle. At the time It was a reminder to believe in myself and grow in confidence.

I have spent this past week wrestling with a problem that I face at work. Despite been on leave this week, it kept raising it’s ugly head in my thoughts, trying to rile me up.

One more day to my birthday! Whoop whoop! I made it through another year and I am so grateful this past year. Not only did I make it but I grew. No, I did not grow wider physically for once (Yipee!).

It's being a while but here I am. This has been such an interesting few weeks that I had to share. I have been on a bit of a "losing" streak of late. Two weeks ago I lost my drivers license. Last week I lost my tested sunglasses and on Saturday I lost my glucometer.… Continue reading “What you resist, persists” Carl Jung
