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!"

Just do the right thing!

But if that is not enough, here is a direct quote.  This is not an attempt to be “holier than thou”, but simply an observation.  After the last few weeks and the immigration issue of separating innocent children from their families, Christians that have supported and upheld the recent Trump policies and appointments have been incredibly silent. This latest “policy and somewhat reversal” has clear and unquestionable instruction for Christians to follow. A well known biblical quote direct from Christ, and still, it was ignored.  I was shocked when Christians did not come out in mass chastising his payment to a porn star and others.  I stood back observing the churches reactions while they watched him lie, and berate and blame others for his misdeeds and still nothing. They continued to excuse and support.  Every now and again I hear a little rumble of discomfort with his behavior…but never more than that.  I do not understand Christians or Republicans and am proud to now call myself neither (and I used to be both)….I am just a human…trying my best to do the right thing based on love.  I think this is what we need more of. Stop hiding behind labels and just do the right thing!
"Breaking Silence"  Janis Ian
