I had no choice about getting diabetes. I have every choice about how I will live my life with it.
Although many things happen in our lives unexpectedly and uninvited, we do get to choose how we respond to them. Diabetes was certainly an uninvited and unwelcome guest in my life, but I have learned how to live with my new roommate on my terms. It happens every day by making intentional and on-purposes choices, by refusing to be a victim and by seeking meaningful experiences. It is in the choosing that we find our power and freedom.
