For the final day of Diabetes Blog Week, we're asked to talk about a role model or somebody we admire. The diabetes-relevant person I think I admire most is my friend-I've-never-met, George, alias the Ninjabetic.
George and I have a lot in common, I think. We both care about words, and exactly what they mean. We both have changes we'd like to make, and I think we're both puzzled about how much trouble we have making them. We both struggle staying positive at times. I suspect that we both torture ourselves with our todo lists, even if those lists exist only in our heads.
But George really puts himself out there. Though he's also busy in his roles as husband, father of two, employee, active church member, musician, actor/director and who knows what else, he continues to participate however and whenever he can in making life better for other PWDs.
Most of all, though, I admire that he keeps moving forward. He challenges himself, and he takes himself out of his comfort zone. And it inspires me to know that he's out there, still pressing on.
