The One Where I Become My Own Philosopher

Choices.

Preferences.

We all have our own. We’re all different – some more than others – and we have to live our lives with whatever choices or preferences are best for us, not for everyone else.

I’m the sort of person who gets easily wrapped up in the common thing. The popular thing. I’m also one to want the latest and greatest of all technology to feed my inner geekiness.

As with all things, sometimes, it’s best to step back from the OOoooo’s and AAAAHHhhhh’s of whatever it is you’re looking at and just think about the basics and compare needs to options and make the best decision for YOU, not because someone else is doing it.

Think about what is going to work for you for the long-haul. Think about what is going to make your life flow. Every choice will have speed bumps to go with it, but it helps to think about it and make the one the choice that will have the least speed bumps in your own flow of life.

Make reasonable choices off of the facts.

Not all that glitters is gold… and all gold doesn’t glitter at every angle.

I’m not just saying this in reference to insulin pumps or meters or any other diabetes technology, although it is what spurred the thought process for me. But it also applies to anything in life, really.

Okay, I’m done being my own philosopher today.

Have a great Wednesday!

  1. I’ve realized this, too, as I’ve gotten over. Maybe it comes with financial commitments (mortgage, kids college funds, etc) and maybe it comes with not caring what others think. I still carry around my B&W-screen d-devices because they work for me..and each other.

    My wife and I were talking about needing to get a new car soon, and we concluded we didn’t want a sunroof this time (we both had them when we were younger). They’re a bit flashy, but I don’t want a sunburned bald head and she doesn’t want tangled, frizzy hair. Practicality over style…

Tell me what you think!
