My New Song – “It’s Not Too Late”

I can’t decide if my left brain is stronger than my right brain? Yes, I’m a diabetes educator who wants to save everybody from the disease and from themselves. At the same time, I realize that we’re all only human and knowing what we need to do and actually doing what we need to do may be two very different things.

My intellectual side realizes this and my creative side wrote a song about it. It’s called, “It’s Not Too Late” and it’s sung to the Carole King (sure I’m almost old) tune, “It’s Too Late”. So, for all of you who actually know the song, please join me and sing your hearts out!

“Stayed in bed all morning just to pass the time, I have diabetes there can be no denying
I don’t want to change but they’re telling me to keep on trying.
They say it’s not too late no it’s not too late to make critical lifestyle changes, but I don’t want to deal with this burden but I can’t ignore it and I have to take it
Oh no…
It used to be so easy without this disease, now I test my blood sugar and care more about what I eat. The exercise is important and relaxing is what I need.
They’ll be a long life for me and you, if we use the education and comply with it too, my support team motivates me and now I have what I need.
It’s not too late to be educated, it’s not too late to help my body, it’s not too late life is for changing, it’s not too late life is for accepting, it’s not too late.”
