my younger sister has been blogging for a few years now.  And she is happy to see her older sis taking up this therapeutic hobby!  She turned me on to a couple sites that provide topics to write on when those writers' block moments occur.

well this week one of those sites has the word 'EXPLORE' and my mind raced.  I went from my childhood when as a teeny-bit tomboy, me and my older sis, along with our brothers, would explore the neighborhood, even the undeveloped lots that looked wild and unkempt.

as we got older, my sister and I would walk to visit relatives, and oftentimes we would use different walking routes, exploring new streets and neighborhoods.  This was back in the day when walking was so en vogue!

and as I got older, exploring various paths in life of course occurred; these explorations included living in different cities and meeting all sorts of people. 

about three years ago, or maybe two, I'm not sure, I discovered a hard 'spot' in my right breast.  I chalked it up to menopause of course, nothing serious.  And then I decided to ignore it since I self-diagnosed that "nothing is wrong, no need to take it serious".  Well during my visit for a check-up about 4 months ago now, my doctor explored my breasts and insisted I have a mammogram, which I did.  The results were benign, but the doctor wants to perform surgery.

EXPLORE your breasts and do not self-diagnose.  Make sure your favorite breasts feel awesomely perfect!!

  1. HOLY CRAP SISTER!!! A wonderful take on the word, but I had no idea about your 'self-exploration'!!! We must talk later - Lol. This was also a good message about the importance of taking care of our bodies - our temples. Thanks for the shout-out; I am so glad you're part of the blog world!!! Love you.
