Big Things in 2012 and Diabetes Interview Week


Happy New Year!!!!

I hope you and your families and friends are doing great and feeling rested from the holiday season.

I’ve got to tell you, I’m so excited about 2012.  I feel like this year will bring some amazing new experiences.  In April I’ll be in D.C. as a judge/panelist representing WEGO health activists at a big conference.  Then in May I’ll be in Raleigh for the Diabetes Sisters Conference and so will Alex because he’s helping out with the first ever Diabetes Sisters Partner’s Perspective Program.  Women attending the conference can now bring along their partners, which I think is a fantastic idea!  In June, my kids will turn three years old  The older they get the more I feel like myself again (phew it’s about time).

This year I’ll be launching my health coaching business and I want to focus on women with diabetes.  I’ll also be actively pursuing publishers for my book.  I’ve been taking my time with that because of my kids being so young but now feels like the right time.  All this is almost enough to make me duck under the covers.  But if there is anything I’ve learned, it’s that we must do that which excites and scares us each day in order to actually gain anything worthwhile in life.  Starting this blog scared me senseless and took up every ounce of my free time and yet, thanks to all of you it’s been one of the most wonderful things I’ve ever done and has directed me to my purpose in life-to support people with diabetes.

So many people have inspired and helped me to recapture my health throughout the years and I want to serve others in that way.  That may mean sharing what I’ve learned or passing on a great tool I’ve heard about.  Or it may mean interviewing someone who inspired me or broadened my view in hopes they will do the same for you.  Speaking of interviews, this week will feature a few interviews that I think you’ll really enjoy.  I had so much fun talking to these people and learned so much.  Stay tuned for tomorrow and the rest of the week.

Cheers to you and your health.  Whether you know it or not, you’re already amazing and fabulous and only steps away from all the things you want in life.  If you don’t believe me, it’s ok, I’ll keep repeating myself until you do :)

Thanks for reading,

    Wow, you do have a lot of exciting stuff lined up for the new year! I couldn’t be more excited for you!!!! I’m REALLY REALLY REALLY hoping to make it to Diabetes Sisters this year – I’ve wanted to every year but it hasn’t worked out, but hopefully 2012 is the year. And if I can go, I think I’ll probably bring my husband too, so I’m extra excited that the partner’s program has been added.
