life, love,art. heart failure and assorted ramblings

Don't Talk Like That...

I write to find out what my heart thinks....

I write to expose and work through the ugly parts of this raunchy disease. My words always help me understand that in this life there will be times that are crappy painful and unexpected but tucked in there are the amazingly wonderful, too. That is when I realized the only control I have over any of this is how I chose to experience them! I realized that I could understand, celebrate can survive even better when I could express these feelings with my own words of courage, humor, and grace. I am the Queen of my own life and the choice is mine!

I am here to celebrate my life, to uncover my fears, to hold on to love, to grieve my losses, to laugh long and hard, and to learn how to live a full magnificent life with heart failure.

I am honoring my creativity, and exploring all of my emotions out loud ...before anyone can say....."Don't talk like that!"

She Did it Anyway


I have been thought of, and sometimes called (to my face)
reckless, 
unmanageable, 
spirited, 
irresponsible, 
careless, 
strong 
and uncontrollable. 
I probably deserve these adjectives and others. 
I do not think they mean to hurt me, maybe they want to 
preserve me, 
slow me down, 
protect me, 
keep me, 
shelter me,
but every time I hear one of those words,
I am weakened.
I have a voice,
I am going to do it anyway, 
because I am incredibly alive, I am brave and
I have so much more to do!


"Strip Me"  Natasha Bedingfield
