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!"

and...I do not allow them...

If I give away my power, I also give them the power to take it away from me.
I know you must think this is so hard hearted, but in reality it is the best way I know to survive.  If I am not depending on anyone, then for the most part no one can disappoint, frustrate, or impact my general happiness.  It all becomes my responsibility….If I do not depend on others, then I am called to be 100% responsible for my own happiness and no one can take that from me unless I allow them to….and I do not allow them.
