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 disease, open heart surgery that was less than successful and more recently an S-ICD (internal cardiac defibrillator) implanted in my chest that will hopefully restore my heart beat in case of sudden cardiac death. I am here to celebrate my life, to uncover my fears, to hold on to love, to learn how to live a full life with heart failure, to honor my creativity, and to explore all of my emotions out loud ...before anyone can say
"Don't talk like that!"


Music is loading really slow lately...sorry...

Change my mind....

Wouldn’t you think once you have felt the amazing power of changing your mind, changing how you think, changing what you believe, that it would get easier?
There are tons of quotes by great thinkers that share this message over and over and over. And still my first knee jerk reaction to everything challenging is to hold on to old programed thinking! To put my emotional guard up- protect me, let someone else convince me or worse yet make the decision for me, or just blindly do what I have always done without any thought at all.
None of these reactions will do anything but guarantee I repeat the same life situations over and over and over again with no chance of growth and new experiences.
I need to get comfortable with doing it different…changing how I think…really looking at what I want from this life, not what others think I should have or feel or do.
