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!"


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

Lessons I am still learning....

According to the website
“Lessons Learned in Life”  37 top regrets have been identified.

I have fully embraced 6 of them!  Some it is just too late….others maybe not!

 #4. Forgoing sunscreen.
Wrinkles, moles, and skin cancer can largely be avoided if you protect yourself. (Suncreen just had not been invented when I was basking on the beach)
#6. Being scared to do things.
Looking back you’ll think, What was I so afraid of? 
#11. Not realizing how beautiful you were.
Too many of us spend our youth unhappy with the way we look, but the reality is, that’s when we’re our most beautiful.
#15. Caring too much about what other people think.
In 20 years you won’t give a darn about any of those people you once worried so much about.
#19. Not standing up for yourself.
Old people don’t take sh*t from anyone. Neither should you.
 #37. Not being grateful sooner.
