New Year ~ New Beginnings ~ New Me?


We all know that with each New Year there are certain ‘expectations‘ that come with it.  ‘Standards of Excellence‘ if you will.  We’ve come to know them as ‘resolutions‘†.

Resolutions vary from the mundane to the extreme,  some are highly thought out,  others just a whim. There are the standards of losing weight,  quitting smoking, exercise more, spend more time with the family,  get that promotion,  become healthier, etc, and we all know these very well. I’m not negating any of these,  as they are, and will continue to be, valid, but what about those ‘out of the box’ resolutions?

Is there something you’ve always wanted to do,  yet now(for your own reasons and/or restraints)are held back from or does it require a bit of adaptive thought to yet BE accomplished?  Is there a fear that needs conquering?  Is there someone you need to reacquaint yourself with?  Is there forgiveness you seek or needs to be given? Do you know who you TRULY  are and do those around you know ‘you’ too? Have you ever asked another person to describe to you what they see you as,  and is theirs and your own self description, for the most part,  similar and in tandem? 

Everyone desires to be the ‘BEST’ ME they can be.  Everyone wants to reach the resolutions they’ve set for themselves.  Everyone considers becoming the ‘NEW ME’. I say a new me is in the view of others. Don’t be afraid to ask others who you are. You may just find your new me in the ‘YOU’ they see, but you haven’t,  until now.

Celebrating Blood Clot Awareness Month by celebrating those who have been with me from the beginning of THIS recovery. Who have been your touch stones through thick and thin, dark and light, tears and laughs, anger and joy. Although just some of my “Sister Strong Survivors” and my son (of course), I celebrate ALL my fellow survivors… For you are strong, able, and loved. Remember… Life is for Living ~ Not Just Surviving…

Live every moment – love every day
‘cus before you know it your precious time slips away.
Live every moment – love every day
’cause if you don’t you might just throw your love away.

I walked for seven miles this mornin’. footprints in the #sand.
#Washed away without a warning when the water hit the land.
But I will #walk on ’til I can no longer stand.
I’ll take you by the #hand and we’ll…

WORLD THROMBOSIS DAY ♥♥♥ FREE DVT/PE PATIENT WEBINAR


  World Thrombosis Day on October 13Livingnotjustsurviving.com

More than 175 thrombosis and cardiovascular societies, associations and federations strong (and counting) in 60 countries are participating in World Thrombosis Day

 First I HAVE to say “Thank You” for not only for  bringing medical awareness  and offering education on Thrombotic disorders, issues, and treatments on a global scale to Healthcare providers, but in that the same was offered to DVT/PE patients as well.

I was an attendee of the free DVT/PE webinar sponsored by three nonprofit organizations whose missions are dedicated 100% to clotting/thrombotic/emobolitc research, information, support, and advancement in their training of awareness and education.  The physician was very informative, while at the same time, for me, it was also comprehendable.  There were several topics covered within the presentation itself that had been concerns of mine. At the conclusion, there was an allotted time for any additional questions and/or concerns by the attendees.  There were several good inquiries from a wide spectrum of topics, yet he answered each one of them in turn. I was very impressed with this opportunity, and would hope there may be more to come in the near future.

New Scientific Review Confirms Blood Clots in Leg and Lungs (VTE)… — CHAPEL HILL, N.C., Oct. 9, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ —

New Scientific Review Confirms Blood Clots in Leg and Lungs (VTEardiovascular Killer Globally –

Is Leading Cause of Death and Disability in Hospitals

CHAPEL HILL, N.C.Oct. 9, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — While the world’s top two cardiovascular killers – heart attack and stroke – are global health priorities, the No. 3 killer, venous thromboembolism (VTE) or blood clots in the leg and lungs, has remained largely unaddressed and under-recognized by the public, according to the most comprehensive scientific review of the global burden of VTE ever undertaken and a global public survey. To address this disconnect, the International Society of Thrombosis and Haemostasis (ISTH) is leading a global effort together with more than 175 health/medical and patient organizations around the world to launch World Thrombosis Day (WTD), focused initially on increasing public and health professionals’ awareness of potentially deadly blood clots in the leg and lungs, the risk factors, symptoms and the importance of prevention.

Really Weird Place Names: Missouri


Although not a native, as I’m one of ‘those’ Yankees… Worse yet that even after 25+ years ‘here’ I’m still considered,. even on the rare occasion, to this day  being publicly proclaimed (albeit done in fun and only by those close enough to get away with it ;-) ), a ‘damned Yankee': Because I stayed… Lol

Now to get back on point here…

I just came across this funny, yet true, blog post regarding Missouri which has several references back to the Bootheel (the topic originating my net-search)

Even though I could SO expound and expand on several of these not so secret ‘secrets’ of my Missouri Bootheel I’ve asked more than once myself. I was relocated here from the State of Illinois (by the way there is no ‘noise’ in Illinois…we are a quiet yet stealthy people taught in the ways of  Chief Illini) where I’d lived the majority of my accumulated 20 life years at that point. To say I experienced culture shock would be an understatement. As, I say this with complete sincerity and adoration when I say that, there is no other place so unique as My Bootheel.. anywhere.

This is absolutely delightful questioning of the obvious that just can’t be read without a smile, and just maybe even a bit of a chuckle, by ANYONE who has ever been both honored and blessed to have ever set foot in God’s Country.

A Citizen of the Bootheel of Missouri:
Where there’s ONLY one Hill and and you give directions for anywhere headed North with words ‘just go over “The Hill” ‘

#StrokeChat Event

                                #StrokeChat Event
                        August 28 ~ 2:00-3:00 p.m. CST

If you should happen to have the time available to you, this is something I DEFINITELY recommend ‘attending’ no matter whether you should participate or stalk. I only say this as it’s much better to be aware and have information that may (hopefully) NEVER be needed, then to be made INCREDIBLY aware through personal experience. Hope to see you there.
