Many women block the results they want to see in their life due to their resistance to doing the hard things. They exchange advancements in careers, meaningful relationships, and health and longevity for the resistance of doing the uncomfortable thing. They postpone what they want in their lives waiting for the outcome to be easier. Naturally, this keeps them stuck. The meaningful things in life are never easy. The “easy” is not meaningful. For type 2 diabetes, the “easy” is taking meds, injecting insulin, eating the foods that you that keep you sick, and staying diabetic. That’s easy. The hard part is living healthy. If living healthy was “easy,” it would not be elusive. EVERYBODY would be doing it. And it would be nothing to talk about.
