The Now and Later Concept

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.

For more information about what many PDWD may consider as problem foods, check out my guest blogs on Diathrive. https://diathrive.com/blog/author/timika-chambers-cde

Does It Really Matter Who or What Reveals The Truth To You?

When I find myself in a situation that I don’t want to be in, I ask how did I get here? The answer is a series of choices and events.

Even in my child abuse experience, there was much to learn about myself and life, not in an attacking way, but how to live more consciously.

I do not wish for anyone to experience abuse. When there is nothing to revert the situation, what do you do? You learn. You heal and move forward.

What emotions are you working with? How can they help you see yourself clearly?

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,
