Give it Your All!
I have set specific goals for myself this summer that are bigger than I have ever before. For once in my life I am taking on challenges that will be a complete change from anything I have ever done before.
Never before have I had dreams like these. It wasn't until diabetes did I ever realize that I am capable of much more. That is the great thing about diabetes to me - I don't really have a say in whether or not I want to have diabetes but I do have a say about how I want to live. There is nothing in this world that can stop us from achieving our dreams because any obstacle that is thrown at us does not mean that we have to stop or quit.
My life before diabetes was pretty bland. I didn't have any big dreams that took effort to achieve. I was more interested in instant satisfaction than working towards something. Now I work hard in school to challenge myself and I push myself to conquer things that some people never attempt in their lifetime.
Although at times I don't think I can make it. Sometimes I don't think I can do the last 1km of my run or study any harder but there is aways something more to do and once you reach your goal whether it's finishing a 5k run or passing with a 90% you know that you gave it your all.
