As a child, I remember looking at a pack of now & later (currently manufactured by Ferrara Candy Company, original producer The Phoenix Company), my favorite childhood candy, and thought what a great concept to use about eating. When People Diagnosed With Diabetes (PDWD) ask me if they can have fruits and other foods, I tell them usually yes, especially if no known problems (allergies, etc.) with the particular food.
Much of what I tell people with diabetes, such as balancing their meals and eating in moderation, everyone should be doing. When I follow the eat now and save some for later principle, I don’t have to worry about excess weight unlike my binge on vanilla wafers I had a few months ago.
I was in my mid 20’s before I learned the terms sexual abuse, incest, and many more associated terms. For years, I focused on who I wanted to be and do instead of sexual abuse statistics. I am so grateful that I had the opportunity to focus on what I wanted out of life instead of what I experienced. When I did focus on labels and what else made me different from others, I had a foundation to return back to and the seeds of life-giving fruit.
Sign up for my monthly newsletter as I share the principles I learned from my experience with sexual abuse and how I am achieving optimal health, my purpose, and using what I learned as a child to weather life storms.
Until next time,
Success! You're on the list.
