.... total tangent, bear with me...

Sorry for the lack of posts lately, but I have been super busy! My job has me all over the place, and I also have been diving into a bunch of different projects and interests. I have been writing a ton, but not for the blog! I have been writing about people a lot (more to come on this @ a later date). And I have also been reading. A lot. One of my favorite books, ever, is written by Shauna Niequist and it's called, "Cold Tangerines." It was really helpful for me to read when I was struggling a lot with everything. It basically talks about really being grateful for everyday and thankful. Changed my attitude when I was younger (or at least made me stop and think, there is no changing teenagers). I'll share my favorite quote from this book maybe in my next post. I painted in out on a canvas and have it where I can see it daily! I am SO into quotes right now.

 I was watching Oprah yesterday (yes, I love that show, I don't care what everyone thinks about Oprah, she sparks something deep down in people) and she had on a man named Tom. I totally suggest you check out this website:   

I am so excited to see this documentary! It is all about how all surviving biological creatures are not self-serving, they are all about community and the helping out of each other. Humanity, as it is today, is all about a sort of self-serving, who-ever-gets-to-the-top-with-the-most-money-wins, sort of mentality. Really made me think and re-evaluate goals. I've been looking into many non-profits that have sparked my interest too! If you want to read more about it, email me, fascinating stuff, but anyways... 

Here are some of my favorite quotes from the site: 

“Every child has known God,
Not the God of names,
Not the God of don’ts…
But the God who only knows four words…
“Come dance with me.”" - Hafiz

“The man may teach by doing, and not otherwise. If he can communicate himself, he can teach, but not by words.” (Spiritual Laws)

So interesting, right? 

Anyways, on the diabetes front... I haven't really been paying as much attention as I should be. I guess it happens when you are so engulfed in something else... My to-do list includes making doctors appointments and figuring out how to keep this dumb sensor on for at least 6 months. It is so annoying, I usually find myself ripping it out after two days of beeping. Any advice?
