Learning All Over Again
I’m starting this day thankful for many things, even though I’m broke right now, meditation has taught me to be happy in the moment. In fact, my new sense of calm seems to be helping with another aspect of my life that I’m not happy with, and that is my health.
Since I am not going anywhere, I have to resist the urge to eat unnecessarily. In the past, I have used food as a crutch. I have to learn that I can control what is happening to my body. This morning I felt my blood sugar levels drop, and a quick check confirmed this. Rather than grabbing a large meal from the kitchen, Hal suggested a banana. The banana helped, but I realized that I would need more to get my sugar level back up to normal.
Once again, I was faced with a choice; I could listen to my emotional side and fix a big meal, or I could listen to my rational side and take a few glucose tablets. Thankfully, I followed the latter path and my blood sugar is back to normal without going high. I am pleased with myself for this small example of self-control. Learning all over again how to control my blood sugar might be the most important thing from my financial hardship. It’s all in how we look at things.
