They say hindsight is 20-20 because when you look back at things that have happened in your life, hopefully you’ve learned some things or gained a different perspective. Hopefully you’ve gained a new or deeper understanding of why you experienced what you did.
This month I got my mammogram. I regret to say that I have not been making these screenings a priority for the past 4 years (since routine screenings should start at 40 years of age) but all that has changed since June of this year. As I have been taking major action to improve my overall health and well-being (which includes prioritizing my annual check-ups etc), I keep thinking about a very close friend of mine who just told me she has breast cancer.
