If you are an Entrepreneur, Business Owner, Wife, Mother, or Daughter, then this is for you.
Let’s talk about Critical Illness Cover, I mean why would you need it? No one plans to get sick!!!! In the 6th lesson from The Richest Man in Babylon – George S. Clason says ” insure a future income – by providing in advance for the needs of your age, growing family and protection of your family.”
Insurance policies are one of the few things that are not usually high on the priority list, but yet it is necessary for peace of mind. George S. Clason advises “better a little caution than a great regret.”
If you do not have policies in place I encourage you to at least explore your options. There is zero harm in asking questions especially where your future is concerned.
As I got closer to surgery date I could feel myself thinking deeply – what happens if I don’t make it through? I mean the paradoxical balance of being positive yet exploring all possibilities.

The reality just got even more real. I’m trying to manage the anxiety and can feel the tension in my mind. I’m so glad for my husband, family and friends as I would never be able to do this alone.
Pressure can put a tremendous strain on your well-being. It can cause you to feel like you will break. I’ve also learned that pressure can be positive if you learn from it. Just as my muscles were growing when I was training with Issac at Meso Fitness he taught me to push my muscles beyond it’s limits until 70kg became “light work”.
Now the pressure of life is stretching me. In character, and in wisdom, the real question is: what am I going to learn from this?
What are you learning from the pressures of life?
Do you have plans in place in case the un-expected happens?
I’m sharing this because I want you to get comfortable with checking your breasts (If you are a male check yours too because breast cancer doesn’t only affect women). Recognise what “normal” looks like so that you can be aware when things are abnormal. Cancer does not discriminate! I know this to be true.
