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!"

but this time there is no book club to quit...

I have always been attracted to Dr. Brene’ Brown’s work, for me it has been a love-hate thing.  Love what she says but I struggle with the how she feels vulnerability must be incorporated in our lives ! I even QUIT a book group “Daring Greatly” How the Courage to Be Vulnerable Transforms the Way We Live, Love, Parent, and Lead.  I think it is the only thing I have ever quit.  I was so ashamed of myself.  I did not feel like I could risk being vulnerable in front of friends and strangers.  I down loaded the book read the first chapter and walked away.  Maybe it was not the time.  Right now I am feeling incredibly vulnerable, it does not feel good, in fact I am afraid it is getting close to letting this fear overwhelm and frighten me but this time... there is no book club to quit.


"Body Love pt. 1 & 2"   Mary Lambert       (so I downloaded her next book "Rising Strong")
