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!"

Nobody said it would be easy, especially since they did not give me all of the instructions!

Everything happens for a reason….I do believe that with all of my heart.  But it seems to take some kind of action or input from me.  I had always believed this basic philosophy but I was always a bit frustrated that it did not work as well as some people claimed it would. But it was not until I realized... They conveniently forgot to mention I needed to participate in some way! 
Like wake up with no regrets, they should have added  LET GO OF YESTERDAY’S “SCREW UPS"….see…they left some important parts out!
Love the ones that treat you right….AND TELL THEM HOW YOU FEEL.
Everyhing  happens for a reason…But .. I NEED TO LEARN HOW TO RECOGNIZE  THEM AND ALLOW THEM TO CHANGE MY LIFE.

Nobody promised it would be easy, but I wish they had given me ALL of the instructions….it might have been a little easier!  Maybe that is why the author is anonymous.
