Today, I had brunch with my dearest friend, who recently underwent a double mastectomy. The doctor had been monitoring something on one side and then found the tumor on the other. She's still experiencing post surgical "problems" that time should resolve.
We agreed that perhaps our age, and the life threatening diagnoses have rearranged our life priorities. Without the diagnoses, life expectancy would be another 15-20 years, at least. With cancer, and what we've done to beat it, it could be the same expectancy.
So why put up with crap in your life just to accomodate others. We want to enjoy our families and take time to enjoy what we want to do. We don't mind working, as we both still do, but we want to be recognized for our contributions to family owned business and treated accordingly. We want to be involved in organizations and active in grouops (sometimes the same one), but don't want to lead the charge. We want to work with those to are given a task and will follow through on the responsibility. In other words, those who don't follow thru need not apply.
After discussing recent trips, wedding plans for her son, and catching up on other news, we parted on a funny note...kind of a jab at someone we have both dealt with...
"What's the difference between a Twit (the blonde who is rude to us) and a Twerk." Well, at least Mylie gets 'er done!
