From My Heart To Yours

HeartIt was the phone call we all dread.

Our lives shattered forever, like shards of broken glass.

The reality seeps into our pores even as we try to deny it.  Maybe if we deny it hard enough somehow it might not be true.

But it was true.  A fatal heart attack at 62 and my father in law was gone.

A beautiful life cut short too soon.  He was a wonderful man and I loved him dearly.

The world lost a legend that day and we lost so much more than that.

Our lives were changed forever.

From the ashes, a burning desire was born.

To stop other lives ending before their time.  Time that is gone forever.

So the journey began.

It hasn’t been easy.  I’ve stumbled and fallen along the way.  I still do.

But I was driven to learn and discover and become all I needed to be to make a difference.

They say that chronic disease is an epidemic.  That we’re getting fatter and sicker.

My mission in life is to turn that around.

Crazy?  Probably.  Impossible?  Maybe.

But dammit I’m going to do everything I can to make it happen.

To make a difference.

One beautiful glorious life at a time.

We’re going to create our own damn epidemic.

Come join me.

    Hi Claire,

    Thank you for your moving personal post.

    I’ve found that Road Safety often has the similar approach of reaching one-life at a time in order to make a change.

    Both such worthwhile causes and worthy of our time and effort

    Keep up the great inspirational work

    What a lovely post. We all need to take better care of ourselves and know that others are depending on us to stay healthy.

      That is so true, Jen. Such a good reason to make ourselves and our health a priority.
