Lately, because of everything that’s been going on in the rest of my life, diabetes seems to have taken a back seat. Or, more of a back seat compared to how active I’ve been over the past few years. I’ve been lamenting that for a while, for two reasons: One, I’ve found that I have a passion for diabetes advocacy; and Two, I feel like I haven’t been paying enough attention to my own health lately.
So when I was cleaning up around the house this weekend and I came across this bracelet, I decided to give it another fling. It says: ACT ON DIABETES.NOW.
For me, it means Acting On Diabetes in two directions: Outward, and Internally too. Maybe hanging this on my wrist for a few weeks will get me refocused on what I do well, and most of all, what is important. I’m not unhappy with me… I’m just looking to be a little more energetic when it comes to taking care of myself, and helping others where I can.
If a blue bracelet can help me do that, then okay. I’m all for motivational symbols. What motivates you?
