It’s been a rough week for Beyonce. But she doesn’t seem to get down, she gets DIVA! All the backlash and the ‘did she or didn’t she’ twitter debates regarding her inauguration performance would probably destroy a lesser diva but not Sasha Fierce! She’s got her eye on the prize. Rumor has it that she’s working overtime in rehearsal preparing for her Super Bowl half-time show because she wants to blow people away! (I’m still upset that she’s promoting Pepsi)
It’s not really clear whether Beyoncé lip-synced when she sang the national anthem at President Obama’s inauguration So what if she did? It’s still her voice. She would have had to sing it to pre-record it. The real issue is why are we all so obsessed about being ‘perfec’t all time?
“Perfectionism helps us to continuously aim for higher standards and become better. It’s a good thing, says Celestine, a blogger for Lifehack.
“The problem is when the quest for perfectionism turns into an obsession – so much so that the perfectionist becomes neurotic over gaining “perfection” and refuses to accept anything less than perfect. In the process, she or he misses the whole point altogether. Such perfectionists can be known as “maladaptive perfectionists.”
This type of diva behavior can really have adverse effect on how someone manages their diabetes. Unexpected blood sugar high’s and low’s are a part of day to day living with diabetes. They’re just something that we have to accept and make peace in order to stay happy and health. If you continually let a bad or unexpected blood sugar value sabotage your mood and/or spirit it could potentially damage your overall health. Be a “Divabetic’ and allow yourself to hit an occasional ‘bad note.’ Stop being a perfectionist and enjoy the music.
