Last night closed out a long week+ of travel, and it closed out with style at the JDRF TypeOneNation Texas event, where I was honored to be a presenter at the conference (talking about balancing diabetes – HEY-O! – and getting the most out of your medical appointments). More on those sessions once I dive into this basin of coffee, but I did want to share one of my favorite visuals from the conference: this board –>
This was a board where people could write who they were at the conference in support of, and they could share their thoughts on the theme of the conference, which was “I’m the ______ type.” Fill-in-the-blank sorts of things used to remind me of school, but now they remind me of some of my favorite #dsma chat nights, so watching this board fill up was eye-opening.
Perspectives (and hand writing) varied, but common threads were support and determination.
Mine was, “I’m the never let it define me type.” But I could have filled that little blue circle out a dozen times with a dozen different answers. What type are you?
