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 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!"

It is the last time I will give away my power...


Most of my life, I have done “should” and “must”  without realizing I even had a choice to make.

Yesterday I made a choice for no other reason than the doctors said I should and I must.  I did what they wanted me to do, even though it is not what I wanted to do.  I hated  the choice, I hated myself for giving in!

It is the last time I will give away my power .   I will take responsibility for this choice, but I will not make another choice in my life based on what someone else says that I must or what I should do…My choices have to be about what gives my life meaning!
