Here on keithmcarthur.ca, I haven’t exactly been prolific. In fact, I’ve published just six posts since 2011.
But today I launched a new blog where I’m planning to post several times a week. This new blog — myinstructionmanual.com — will chronicle my attempts to live my life to the fullest, to be happier, healthier and more productive.
Why am I embarking on this journey?
About a year ago, I learned that the chronic kidney disease I’d been coping with for the past 17 years had taken a sudden turn for the worse. My kidneys were failing badly, leaving behind toxins that were slowly poisoning my body and my mind.
Fortunately, I was blessed that my sister offered to donate one of her kidneys to me. On April 11, 2017, her kidney was successfully transplanted into my abdomen.
I have a chance at a second life and I am determined not to waste it.
