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!"

Strong Women

Now…let me clarify this….because quite frankly this sounds like a sanctimonious, holier than thou bitch!  But really it is not.  Strong women come in all different kinds.  What they do have in common is that they “stand and deal”.  Although I believe I have always been a strong woman, I was strong for all of the wrong reasons, I was strong because it has been what other people in my life expected of me.  I am not certain I ever did it because it was what I chose to do. 
The difference is now I choose.
I choose to be strong, I am not really good at it yet….I have a lot to learn but..
I am learning to love me.
