We all need it. We all get it from different sources. We could always use a little more.

I could certainly use yours. How do you stay motivated to care for yourself after all the years of tests and doctors and frustration?

My 15 year dia-versary is in March and I'm planning to celebrate in a big way in 2015.

My main goal for 2015 is be in better control and live harder. I've let myself slip and I know that I need to do all I can to stay focused on my health and well-being to avoid complications down the line. I've found an app that I really like to log my BS. So there's that. What else is there? How do you do it?

no limits

I recently came across a post on Facebook that made me stop and say wow. I couldn't stop clicking through links and pictures and then I realized I'd been clicking for over an hour and being totally inspired by this journey. I'm not sure who this person is, not even sure what his name is but I'm inspired by his journey and passion.

I'm referring to LivingVertical. So many times we've all heard or thought that something was now impossible because we've been diagnosed with T1D. Well, this guy broke down all of those stereotypical thoughts by rock climbing his way around the States and living out of a car. All while managing his T1D the old fashioned way. It almost makes me want to do the same, except I've only been rock climbing three times or so (once actually outdoors) and I don't think my cat would do well living in a car. I'd need an RV. Definitely an RV. He also takes amazing photos. Something that I'm also passionate about. His journey has planted a new line of thinking in my head and now I feel inspired to do more. To live harder and more passionately without thinking I have limits just because I have T1D. What would you do without limits? What are you doing because you know there are none?
