Change Is Inevitable, And I Am Learning To That

Change Is Inevitable, And I Am Learning To That

​"When we are no longer able to change a situation - we are challenged to change ourselves." - Viktor E. Frankl

Change, it's inevitable.

Lately, I feel like that is all that's ever happening around me.

It's a weird thing to think about when everything you are so used to suddenly starts to slip from your fingers. When suddenly things don't feel how they used to feel. That's when you know something has changed.

Situations come, and sometimes, there is no other option than to change, whether it is for better or for worse.

Although sometimes, I feel like I have the whole "changing" thing figured out, I don't, and to be honest, I'm not sure if I ever will. Change is something I have never been good at and have always been scared of.

Many people fear change because it gives you the sense of losing control. When you don't feel in control of yourself, your life or a situation it can make you feel uneasy.

When people say that we are creatures of habit, they are not wrong.

As some may say repetition is key, it's easy to follow a routine because every day there are no surprises. Now, if that routine becomes out of order or something new gets added in, that's when people start to become panicked.

Some think of change like the ripple effect when you throw a pebble into the open water and continuous ripples start to form. Therefore, it is thought that if you change one part of your life, that means everything else will change as well, but this isn't entirely true.

Sometimes, the reason people are so scared of change is that they don't realize that is what they need most in life. People get so caught up in a daily routine or a bad situation that they start to think that it's the only way things should be.

It's OK to not feel in control sometimes.

It's OK to feel like things are different.

Without change, whether it's something small or something that is totally life changing, we would never learn to grow.

We need growth in order to become better people and make better decisions.

Recently, I have been trying to learn to love change and to understand why it is completely necessary.

Look at it like this: When you have the option to change something, why wouldn't you?

The last thing you should want is to be stuck in the same place, doing the same thing.

Take a moment, think about what you can change and do it.

I know I am only 21 years old, but it feels like there is already a lot changing around me, and I know there is much more to come.

After all, change is inevitable.

Six Travel Tips For Diabetics To Keep Blood Sugar In Check

Don't let diabetes keep you from the things you love .

Being diagnosed with diabetes is usually a life changing incident for anyone. It does come with a whole bunch of restrictions, medication and changes which seem quite overwhelming. If you are someone who loves to travel, the biggest question that arises is what diabetes means for your travel plans! Well, don’t you worry, because with the help of a bit of planning you can travel safely.

Doctor’s note

For your own safety always carry a note from your doctor stating your health condition, medical specifications with dosage, emergency medicine and paraphernalia including emergency foods that can be administered. Make sure you carry it on yourself all the time while travelling so that in case of any emergency, people can read the note to help you out.

Have your insulin handy

Insulin is your best friend and life saver when you are diabetic therefore, it is important that you carry and store your insulin safely. While flying keep all your diabetes medicines and insulin pens or bottles etc. in a separate small bag in your hand luggage. Make sure you keep a note explaining the details on insulin administration in the bag.

Always carry water

Owing to the increased sugar levels in the blood people who have diabetes are more prone to getting dehydrated. Not only can this make you exhausted and sick, it can also raise your blood sugar levels. Elevated blood sugar can be extremely harmful. If not controlled, it can lead to organ damage. Moreover, owing to diabetes, your organs are always a bit vulnerable, so low water consumption can also contribute to kidney diseases.

Carry some snacks

Make sure that you care some snacks, especially some sugar-based ones like candy or even glucose or plain sugar in case your blood sugar level drops during the trip. It is important to keep a tab on what you are eating throughout the trip since it can and will affect your health. If you need to travel somewhere which requires you to be in a place with no food to buy, pack some snacks before the trip so that you can avoid a gap between two meals which can cause your blood sugar to fall otherwise.

Take care of your feet

Any kind of injury take a much longer time to heal for a diabetic person, hence it is always a wise idea to stay safe and avoid injury. During travelling the body part which is usually most likely to be injured is the foot. Therefore, it is important to choose proper footwear for your travels. There is a variety of special footwear for diabetic patients available in the market.

Mention your dietary restrictions

While travelling make sure you mention your health condition and dietary restrictions to the people at the hotels and restaurants you eat at so that your food can be prepared accordingly. If you are travelling with a caregiver or travel companions, make sure they are aware of your restrictions as well.

Diabetes is not the end of the line, so don’t let it stop you from travelling. With proper caution, medication, emergency options like insulin, and good lifestyle management, you can live a happy life and satisfy your wanderlust.
