Blog Week Post 3 - One Thing to Improve

Diabetes Blog Week
One Thing to Improve

Karen at Bitter Sweet is holding a Diabetes Blog Week for bloggers to share ideas, heart felt stories and tid-bits about Type 1 Diabetes.  If you haven't had the chance, go back and read Post 1 and Post 2.  It will knock your socks off.  Ok, maybe not but hopefully, you will find some entertaining stories.

Today, the topic is One Thing To Improve.  While I had to stop and think about the One Great Thing in type 1 diabetes, I had absolutely no trouble in finding something to write about for One Thing to Improve.

Isn't that they way we are?  Humans are so ultra critical of themselves.

First thing that popped into my mind was to continue my efforts in not slacking off or feeling type 1 diabetes burn out.  I wrote all about that here.

However, the second thing that I thought about was screw the idea that there is One Thing to Improve.

Because really, the whole point of why I blog is to let others know that doing your best really is good enough and that we shouldn't let the A1C or my-cat-has-diabetes comments derail us and make us feel less than worthy. 

Being a pancreas for someone 24 hours a day, seven days a week is hard.  Really hard.  So maybe the real One Thing to Improve is stop thinking about what you could be doing better and start celebrating the million things that you did perfectly!
