Diabetes Blog Week (Late): Mantra Me.

I missed the end of Diabetes Blog Week, but I loved the prompts and still have ideas trickling in here and there.  So better late than never!

I don’t like catch phrases.  (Forgiiiiiiiive me, especially since I just used a trite turn of phrase up there with the whole “better late than never” thing.  Turn the other cheek, please.)  I especially don’t like catch phrases that rhyme because I immediately lose focus on the meaning of the words and instead say “Rhyme time, rhyme time” over and over in my head, which is distracting.  (However, I do have a soft spot for “Test, don’t Guess” because it’s both good advice and fun to yell.)

But this still works for me:

It’s not my favorite sentence or blog post, but it is a sentiment that still applies, a decade after blogging and almost three decades after diagnosis.  Contrary to how my blog might portray my life, I don’t think about diabetes every moment of the day.  But diabetes does influence many of the decisions I make throughout the day, like what giant purse I bring, or what kind of breakfast I have, or what sort of exercise I do.  Or how I feel about certain things at certain times.

It’s not a back burner, but more like a crock pot that’s always on simmer.  So long as it doesn’t burn the house down, I’m fine with that.

Today‘s (well, technically last week’s) prompt:  If you have been blogging for a while, what is your favorite sentence or blogpost that you have ever written?  Is it diabetes related or just life related?  If you are a new blogger and don’t have a favorite yet, tell us what motivated you to start sharing your story by writing a blog?  (Thank you Laddie of Test Guess and Go for suggesting this topic.)  Be sure to check out the posts from Diabetes Blog Week!
