Which of the following aspects of how you live with your diabetes do you find to be the most DIFFICULT for you?
(Index Finger) Physical Health. This of course is the most fundamental thing (everything else takes place in relation to your physical self). Am I testing? Am I eating right? Am I exercising? Is my Hemoglobin A1C in an acceptable range?
(Middle Finger) Emotions. Am I feeling mad? Sad? Afraid? Joyful? Trusting? Do you feel like giving this finger to everyone around you, to yourself, and even to God? (Remember, your emotions are not in control! Emotions are pulled along the tracks by the engine of your mind.)
(Ring Finger) Mental/Psychological/the Mind. Do you need to change the way you think about your diabetes, your health, your life? (As you evaluate your overall health, use this finger to consider your commitment to your health in each of the other areas. Put a ring on it.)
(Little Finger) Relationships. Do you have good friends and close family who support and encourage you and provide you some accountability? Do you have a doctor and other healthcare specialists on your team? (Don’t discount the little finger because it’s “little.” Positive, healthy relationships help you deal better with things emotionally, mentally, physically, and yes, even spiritually.)
(The Thumb) Spiritual Life. Regardless of what your spiritual life consists of, this component has a substantial, perhaps even supreme, impact on everything else. You can hold on for a short while with your four other fingers–that is, with your own power–but without the thumb, a higher power, you will eventually lose your grip. How are you doing spiritually?
