Hammer Time

Today’s post was supposed to be about an diabetes incident/ talking-to-a-stranger moment I had on the subway last week.  However, I read the following quote from Eleanor Roosevelt this morning and thought, “Oh My God, THAT’s IT.”  I will probably read this a thousand more time this week. To diabetes and beyond… Thanks Eleanor Roosevelt and this is why if I could have dinner with any famous person, dead or alive, she is STILL my #1.

“You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, ‘I have lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along.’ You must do the thing you think you cannot do.”

- Eleanor Roosevelt

Powerful words.

Now, in other news, I haven’t been to a Spin class in years but I will be participating in the JDRF event this Saturday (March 8th).  In NYC?  Looking for some exercise?  Want to try a David Barton class without becoming a member? Want to support JDRF?  Want to join me?  Want to push me back-up onto my bike when I keel over but my feet are still tied to the pedals?

Facing Fear.

STOP.  Hammer time.

  1. I’m a bit too far away to join you at the Spin Class…. Otherwise I’d be there in a minute. Sending you lots of virtual support and keeping my fingers crossed for good blood sugar numbers and strong legs. I followed your link and made a small donation.

What do you think?
