The older I get is the more I realize how much I need help to do life well. So much is taken for granted. We assume a innate understanding of what constitutes our basic living, simply because it is essential, i.e. eating, walking, sleeping, etc. But, in truth, we need help to do all these things, and more, well. Though we are human, we are not born with an understanding of what it means to be a well human, much less how to maintain wellness. We learn. We learn from God and we learn from others, or else we remain in the dark.
But there are some things about which we are ashamed to learn. We know we are wanting for information, but we dare not ask. We fear that because of our asking we will be ridiculed or that the answer to our question will mark us different in a way that snuffs out our hope of ever truly belonging. We cannot help ourselves though. We use whatever devices we can to learn under cover. We observe with our unspoken questions as our lens. Growing up I had several questions. One remained unspoken, "Are my breasts normal?"
It's unlikely that I was the only one who wondered about whether or not her breasts were normal. Very little was ever spoken of what healthy breasts did, looked and felt like. And when breasts became a topic of discussion, it was about how unwell they can become--even to the point of killing us. Today, we want to equip you with knowledge of what healthy breasts do, look and feel like. It's so important that we know what wellness means for us. It is the vision made plain.
Take some time this month to get to know your breasts. It is important that you know your normal, so that you can recognize when something is possibly awry and seek medical counsel. Watch below for how to perform, what should be, your monthly breast self-examination.
Happy temple building!
Take care. Bless many
