4 years ago today: near death heart surgery, my most recent heart related surgery. I had NO idea all that would transpire on that day, let alone all the days since. Transformation is one way to describe the last 4 years, but it does not fully encapsulate the heart of it, the daily healing that has been required, the need to say no and the need to say yes and knowing what feels right and when. There has been significant loss and abundant growth. With my hand over my heart right now, feeling each beat, I AM SO VERY grateful for my beautiful bionic beating heart. I am grateful I am here. I am grateful I am alive. I am grateful for my loved ones being by my side through it all and my loved ones who are always with me in spirit, thought, encouragement, and energy.
Join me and raise a glass, to THIS ONE Precious Life! Let’s live! ❤️🥂❤️
With all my heart.
Begin, process, and end each moment, with ALL my heart.
This is how I learn, thrive, and grow...
With ALL my heart.
Love with all my heart.
Feel with all my heart.
Share with all my heart.
Learn with all my heart.
And most definitely LIVE each day with ALL my heart.
Tomorrow marks 4 years since my near death heart surgery. It has been beyond incredible to continue the reflection of what it means to me. What it means to be here, alive, and living a life that I LOVE!
Until tomorrow, sweet dreams!
TODAY is gonna BE
A W E S O M E!!!
I’ve begun saying this to myself at the beginning of the day. It’s my way of setting the intention, the mode, and my energy for the day ahead. EVEN when, sometimes ESPECIALLY when things are not starting off quite right or I’m feelin a lil off. I say it in my head, repeat over and over, and I say it out loud, maybe even make up a lil song to go with it, “Today is gonna BE AWESOME!!!!”
This leaves me feeling more energized than before I said it and it also leads me to keep looking for evidence (as I’m learning in Mel Robbins #MindsetReset) that the day IS & is going to continue to BE AWESOME!
Need a lil energy boost? Give it a try!
Keep on showing up for you!
This is what I told myself as I left the house to go on an evening walk. A late afternoon migraine may have prevented me from running tonight as the running motion did not feel good. However, I still moved! I still got activity in! Like @melrobbinslive says, “do it anyway!” The cool air, the moonlight, a brisk walk, breathing in and out and finding myself humming along to a song in my head.
Keep on showing up Dear Ones! This was another way that I made the most of today’s moments. Sweet dreams!
