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!"

Whose rules?

No one ever talks about rules, except when I have broken them.  When I broke rules, as I child I was spanked, as a teenager I was restricted and as an adult deprived (money or attention), at no time did anyone ever say there will be times that breaking rules is a good thing.  In addition, there are so many ridiculous rule makers, whose rules take precedence? God’s Rules, government rules, business rules, art rules and unwritten family rules, which ones are the most important, which ones have the least consequence when broken.  And of all of the rules which ones have consequences, and if they do claim consequences are they enforced?

The question is…which ones can I break and benefit from?  Who will it hurt, what if it hurts no one?  Are rules more about protecting others, or keeping me in line with normal? I always gravitate towards those that have broken the rules and become great in spite of the rules….but which rules can I break? Is 62 too late to be breaking rules?
