Take Control Of Your Life Angelina-Style
I commend Angelina Jolie for being proactive in her health and getting tested to find out she carries a gene that gives her an 87% chance of developing breast cancer. She opted for a double-mastectomy. Her message is simple…”Life comes with many challenges. The ones that should not scare us are the ones we can take on and take control of.”
That’s a great message for us all….and not just in regards to getting screened for cancer. Take an inventory of your life. Is there something that is within your power to change that you haven’t dealt with yet? You CAN lose weight. You CAN stop drinking. You CAN start exercising. You CAN be a more involved parent. You CAN make healthier choices. You CAN do your research to find out how to get the help you need. “Do not let what you cannot do interfere with what you can do.” Now THAT’S some damn fine advice courtesy of legendary basketball coach John Wooden.
Take Angelina’s announcement and turn it into something YOU benefit from. Start today. “Day One” is a good place to be… and so is day two and day three…
