I’ve always thought I wouldn’t get a face lift, but who knew? Okay, I didn’t get one but my web site did. And, by the way, my closet is getting one too at this very moment. It promises to be a walk-in closet, although once you walk in there’s barely enough room to turn. Ah, city living.
Okay, back to diabetes. If you’ve been to my site, DiabetesStories, before, it looked like the above picture, so now you know you’re in the right place. (Hopefully) you’ve been redirected here and it looks a little more like we’re in the 21st century. Yes, after seven years blogging, it was time to go into the clouds.
Take a few minutes to stroll around, there are some nice photos. I especially like the one of the hand on my WORK page. You’ll learn a bit about me, my work, my books, and this and that and feel free to contact me on the CONTACT page. It’ll be lonely here when my contractor finds the door handle for the closet that he’s looking for and it’ll be just me again. I’ll continue blogging here on things I find new and interesting or thought provoking or personal. Plus, there’s an amazing archive of blog posts, over 7 years, and really, when I went back to read them all, many were quite impressive.
This year I’m writing my fourth book. Yes, some people say, “Why?” My Aunt thought I couldn’t fill one, and she has diabetes. This one’s about how to flourish with diabetes. Trust me, there’s little if anything that’ll tell you that. I’m not talking cope, I’m talking flourish. How to live a joyful, productive, purposeful, healthy and happy life – with diabetes. Or as I like to say not despite, but because of diabetes. Health professionals will also learn how to work from a “flourishing” rather than a “coping”approach, and yes, there’ll be simple tools to help you.
I’m also creating some mini videos for dLife based on my latest book, Diabetes Do’s & How-To’s, which will be, hopefully again, fun and entertaining and designing a series of webinars for Wellcoaches, to help health professionals gain some coaching skills to more effectively help people with pre-diabetes delay or avoid type 2 diabetes.
So that’s it in a nutshell, except for the wild parties, orgies and raves of course.
As Oscar Wilde said, “We are all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars.” I’m right here in the gutter with you living with diabetes, 43 years this month, but most of the time I’m looking up at the stars. You get that that’s figurative because you can’t see stars in New York City. But quite literally, it would be my greatest pleasure to take you along.
With this new site we’re already in the clouds, how much further could it be?
