What Gets You Through the Day

Yesterday we opened up about how diabetes can bring us down. Today let’s share what gets us through a hard day.  Or more specifically, a hard diabetes day.  Is there something positive you tell yourself?  Are there mantras that you fall back on to get you through?  Is there something specific you do when your mood needs a boost?  Maybe we've done that and we can help others do it too? (Thanks to Meri of Our Diabetic Life for suggesting this topic.)


What gets me through a bad diabetes day?  


Music.


I am NOT a musician.  I have no musical talents but I like to listen to music.  I have eclectic tastes.  I like jazz.  I like classic rock.  

I really like country music.  Why? Because the songs tell stories.  I love stories.  Sometimes it is boy meets girl,sometimes it is about friendship and sometimes it is about love and separation.  Okay, and the beat can be pretty good too...

One of my current mood building artists is Kenny Chesney.  

 Enjoy!
