The People Like Me

Nick has been asking me to share this picture from the MuleSkinner 50-miler. I kept telling him no because I’m intermittent fasting from social media.

But here I am. Having done it anyway.

Why did I change my mind?

I can’t find the people like me.

Maybe there’s someone out there frustrated AF that they can’t find the people like them– and what if.. maybe, just maybe, I’m that person.

I’ve been spending a lot of time truly questioning my motives behind posting to social media. I go from one extreme to the next. Whether my motives are pure or not, I’m not going to find my people if I keep quiet. So I guess you could say I’m being selfish by posting.

I have a big thing I want to do in 2021. And to get there, I have a few big things I need to do successfully over the next year.

The things are going to be hard.
Really hard.
And they are going to push me to my perceived limits.
Again.

I have this really strong and vivid image of myself doing these things– which I find exciting because visualization of success is key in actually manifesting that success.

I also have this annoying partner named type 1 diabetes tagging along on the journey. Some days she makes things harder than they need to be and it sucks.

I’m not quite ready to share the things yet.

That makes it real and a little scary.

I will eventually spill the beans. In the meantime, I’m recommitting to detailed tracking, practicing patience, and extending grace in diabetes management; being my best self; and spreading my truth (even when it’s not pretty)
