All of a sudden I'm thinking big. I've imagined the biggest ideas, dreamt the biggest dreams and have been achieving the biggest accomplishments of my life. I want to be more, do more and just live life to the fullest. It's not only important to be active and keep positive because of my diabetes but it's also important to do these things because I deserve the best no matter what.
I always wanted to be someone. I knew that I had the heart but lacked the passion inside of me to truly be who I always wanted to be. I feel like we all deep down inside have things we want to accomplish, places we want to see and things we would love to do. Why not pursue your life as if there are no limits? It seems people don't realize that they are capable of doing whatever it is that they wish to do. It takes everyone time to realize that they deserve more. I know that if diabetes hadn't entered my life I would be sitting around doing nothing, not thinking of what I can do to improve my life and not thinking of how I am going to live my dreams.
Trust me, I was doing the same thing as most people. I lived each day the same and hoped for something great and unexpected to happen that would get me excited enough to want to wake up the next morning. Things like going to a party and drinking a few coolers was one of the 'events' that I looked forward too. I still look forward to spending time with my friends, but most of all I love looking forward to raising awareness, laughing, sharing memories and celebrating that my diabetes is under control and that I have the best support team that a girl could ask for.
I don't want people to have to be diagnosed with a disease, an illness or have a near death experience in order to feel the need to live. I want everyone to celebrate life with open arms and hearts and welcome those around you. I know that there always seems like there is nothing to do but there is always something that can be done. We are all capable of achieving our dreams just push yourself and know that you deserve everything.
