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!"

We all live for....

Laughing….it is what we all need a whole lot more of!  Between the election, the frightening cabinet/staff appointments, the pipe line protests, Monsanto, Trump, PET scans, road construction with their chronic traffic snarls and to make it even more frustrating and aggravating…..the holidays are here (AUGHHH!!!!) with treacherous large family gatherings and heinous company parties!   There is a good chance that none of these things will kill you…but sometimes when I am in the thick of those monstrous moments…I have my doubts!

All of it is aggravating, all of us will probably go through it or something very similar and in the end….none of us get out of it alive.  So, as I (and all of us) face down some really big ugly life altering decisions, I need to remind myself (and you) to just love and laugh...again!  I will continue to make the best decision I know how to make, then I am going to just let them go and spend the rest of this loving and laughing! 

We might as well love and laugh, love and laugh long and hard…until our belly hurts…..they are after all, the times we all live for!
