my joyful heart.

  • Seeing the sunrise
  • Saluting the sun
  • Flowers sent
  • Flowers received
  • Committing to extreme self-care
  • Rededicating
  • Going within
  • Letting go
  • Forgiving
  • Realizing
  • Sushi for dinner
  • A special delivery
  • Filling one journal
  • … starting another
  • Puppy hugs
  • Kitty kisses
  • Wonderful people all around me
  • Connections
  • Blessings
  • Seeing the sunset
  • Making someone’s day
  • Love… inside and everywhere.

This has been my day, my “Personal New Year”.

One year ago today, I had open-heart surgery at age 32 to repair a life-threatening aneurysm.  It all happened so quickly but today – today especially – I see how far I’ve come, how much good is inside me, how blessed and grateful I am and how much I have to offer this world, so much still to do.  The universe realized this and saw to it that I survived, that my heart was repaired and kept beating.  I don’t know what all I still have to do or want to do or what the Universe has in store for me but I’m realizing and learning and discovering.  Slowly, sometimes painfully. 

Always gratefully.

  1. I am so happy you are blogging again…I have decided to blog more, FB less. You really incredible and what a fantastic way to celebrate your 1 year anniversary of living with a wide open heart. You have a lot to say and do, my dear…with room to do it on this blog as you continue to delight and motivate your fan club.
    Maybe this blog could be the beginnings of a book?

  3. KB- This post shocked me because I had no idea that you had heart surgery! Being one of your virtual friends, I can honestly say that you didn’t ever skip a beat with all of your cool creative projects; you are always so busy 🙂 I have to say that you have always been such a creative inspiration to me. XOXO
