There is a sense of relief when you realize that no damage is done and you start to breathe easier. When I think about the proverbial "calm after the storm" I like to take a moment to thank God for His protection.
But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, that you may be children of your Father in heaven. He causes his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous.
- Matthew 5:44-45
A vital part of wellness is having faith that a storm will not last forever. They do eventually pass and the skies become blue once again. My diabetes storm seems to have calmed down now, for which I am truly thankful. I do feel the calm seas now that my medication has been increased a bit and I'm not having as many hypers. Eating right, exercising, staying hydrated with water and getting plenty of rest has seemed to help. A positive attitude is also essential for overall wellness.
I think I will be experiencing more calm seas from now on! I certainly hope that is the case anyway!
Here's a song by The Muppets called "Everything Is Great" - and it is!
