That word hero for me evokes visions of Mother Teresa, Gandhi, Martin Luther King, Jr., or that fireman who just saved a life. I don’t feel like a hero, I just feel like me.
Recently my friend Becky Lewis nominated me for a local news channels “First Coast Everyday Heroes” for inspiring her to think more about her own health. I am honored to be thought of as a hero in that way, and I do hope that I can reconcile my own standards to feel worthy of such an honor.
I was completely shocked when the reporter from First Coast News called to tell me that they wanted to do a story on the nomination. Really? On Me? Uhhhhh… so I agreed.
It is delightful to know that the choices we’re making are having an positive impact, and I am honored if my voice of public accountability is inspiring to you … thank you for letting us in. Let’s keep going on this journey together and keep making small steps to twist our health into the shape it needs to be.
