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!"

Pushed me

"7 Flights Up"  CJ Evans
To those of you who have pushed me, thank you.
   Without you I wouldn’t have fallen.
To those of you who laughed at me, thank you.
   Without you I wouldn’t have cried.
To those of you who just couldn’t love me, thank you.
   Without you I wouldn’t have known real love.
To those of you who hurt my feelings, thank you.
   Without you I wouldn’t have felt them.
To those of you who left me lonely, thank you.
   Without you I wouldn’t have discovered myself.
But it is to those of you who thought I couldn’t do it;
   It is you I thank the most,
Because without you I wouldn’t have tried.
                                                            Robert Tew
