A few days ago, I had a conversation with a coworker about how much cancer sucks. He told me a story about how a friend of his was diagnosed with a rare form of breast cancer, but fought like stink and ended up beating it. He went on to talk about how even though she went into remission and the cancer never came back, she still had to go through regular exams and tests to make sure it was really gone for good. So, in a sense, it always stayed with her. Completely life-changing. He concluded by saying that since then, she made it a point to tell 2 women each day to get a mammagram. A simple, yet potentially life-saving, task.
What did I get out of this story? I am passionate about several things, health being one of them. I realize that back squats and pullups, grain-free and dairy-free aren’t even close to the same caliber as cancer, but they all have to do with a person’s health. I have decided to talk to 2 people each day about health in an encouraging way. Exercise, clean eating, even cancer screening if that’s the way that the conversation goes.
What are you passionate about? Do you care enough to tell 2 people?
