Go Red for Women

I had the opportunity today to participate in the local Go Red for Women - American Heart Association Awareness Luncheon. While at the Luncheon there were several guest speakers, 2 locals, a doctor and a few videos. While no one wants to hearthe risks and statistics of Heart Disease - it was an eye opening experience. 

As I sit there and listen to the surviors of Heart Disease and realize they are thankful forever day they are here with the condition they have and that all it takes is one ignored sign of a heart attack. Be aware of how your body feels!

I guess the thing I think about more and more these days since I am about to bring a child into this world is - don't live with regrets. Make sure you live your life how you want to live it.

I think I was meant to post this sappy message because I also on the radio this morning was listening to a segment about how terminally ill patients were asked what their top regret is in life...here are a couple and please don't let this be you. Don't be scared of the doctor and don't be scared of your body!

1. Wish I would not have worried so much about what other people think of me.
2. Wish I would have taken more risks to get what I wanted.
3. Wish I would have stayed in touch with more friends.
4. Wish I would have spent less time working and more time with family.

While these are just a few - take a look at what you may regret and I challenge you to change that :)

Here are a few pictures from the event today :) These are just a couple of my dearest friends.
