Why I Love Being a Diabetes Educator | Mindful Monday

During our Mindfulness and Self-Compassion for Diabetes Educator Webinar, our amazing speaker, Heather Nielsen, asked our audience to type what they loved about being a Diabetes Educator.  Here are their responses.  I am grateful to be am member of this compassionate and dedicated community!

What do you love about being a diabetes educator?

I am grateful that I can be a source of comfort and knowledge to others.

Being able to empower people to better manage their diabetes.

Grateful to have a job I love and help others lead a happier and healthier life. Grateful to have a roof over my head, a a loving husband, fur baby and human baby on the way!

Walking beside others as they move to their best healthier selves.

I am so delighted to be here, alive, passionate and experiencing more and more to help others with! 

The “ah-HA” moment where people understand the science behind diabetes, those “light-bulb” moments.

I’ve realized that the more knowledgeable I am about what I’m educating about, the less burnout I tend to experience.

Building relationships and journeying with people who are struggling with diabetes.

Giving patients hope that they can live a healthy quality of life.
