I saw an ad the other day for the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer. In previous years I’ve always contributed, and supported on the sidelines. It is an event I strongly believe in and have always wanted to participate, but had never made it happen. This year is different. It has been 30 years since my mother died of breast cancer, and this year I am going to walk! I’ve always wanted to do it, but there has always been a good reason why I was unable to do so, whether it was work obligations, family matters, travel or whatever. This year not only will it be a priority on my calendar but my daughter will be joining me in the walk as well, to make the experience that much sweeter.
As the event gets closer I will have more to report. But for now, be on the lookout for a lady in pink and her daughter supporting a cause they passionately believe in and giving back. One person at a time, one step at a time, we will be walking to make a difference, spread awareness and find a cure for this horrible disease.
As author Norman Vincent Peale once said, “The really happy people are those who have broken the chains of procrastination, those who find satisfaction in doing the job at hand. They’re full of eagerness, zest, productivity. You can be, too.”
