Friday Blogging with Georgia!

Our newsletter reporter Georgia, will be blogging her journey with diabetes and everyday life on our Friday Blog! Here is her first post.


I’m going to start off with a positive quote I found online: “You can never cross the ocean unless you have the courage to lose sight of the shore”. In the last few weeks I have been eliminating unwanted stress and negativity from my life, and I have never felt better.

After turning 20 in August, I am now focusing on making this my year in several areas: friends, family and work.  It has already been incredible, with great surprises and more opportunities than I could have hoped for presenting themselves.

Never have I put this much effort into changing; not just my personality but more so my attitude towards things – looking on the brighter side of life.  Of course, I still have those days where nothing makes sense and the world is out to get me. However it’s about reminding myself of all the great things in my life, rather than focusing on the negative.

As it nears Christmas, it’s easy to get lost in all of the things you ‘have to do’ and forget to be happy and enjoy the moment.

We all have things that need to be done and  many unwanted obstacles that appear. Just remember that everything always happens how it is supposed to.  Another inspirational quote that applies here could be: “you are only given what you can handle”.

I’m not going to sit here and write about how everyone should be bouncing of rainbows and smelling the roses, but positive and proactive thinking is a good mindset to try and train your brain into. It doesn’t have to be a 24/7 job. But you might find that if your attitude lifts you up, it could lift up others around you, too.

When Spring finally settles in, I hope you enjoy the weather and the rest of September.

Bye for now, Georgia
