It was while facilitating a workshop in Tucson with medical professionals and patients. I showed a picture of a lone tree stretching skyward with the quote, “Be brave with your life so that others can be brave with theirs."
A woman leaned into me and said, “You are that tree.”
I am changing how we perceive living with chronic illness. We can do more than cope, we can flourish. We can discover strength and purpose in illness. Live from deeper wells of compassion. Embrace health and aliveness. Resonate pride. I live in this space and guide others here.
You can have a great life, not despite a chronic illness, but because of it. I know. I’ve had diabetes 45 years. My feet are planted like that tree in what it gives me.
I’m sharing how to flourish if you have diabetes and enabling HCPs to enliven it in their patients. I can help you do this too.
