This weekend I made a bit of a boob of myself.
A big boob of myself if I’m completely honest.
The last 3 weeks have been super intense for us and I’ve been rushing about non-stop. Now. That’s not really a proper excuse, but I don’t feel like my feet have touched the ground, generally speaking. And that’s sort of what happened on Saturday.
My feet didn’t exactly touch the ground… in the right order because I was rushing. Rushing way too much for one person.
Before I knew it, oppsss!!! Up the stairs I somehow fell. Conking my forehead off the edge of our wooden steps and then floundering about like a beached whale as I sort of tumbled back down them.
I’ve got a ridiculously sore forehead, thankfully hidden by my hairline, whiplash (how is that even possible) and a very strained side. And the lesson? Well, to obviously slow down.
What’s this got to do with boobs and #BreastCancerAwareness?
If I had been looking up, or at least in the right direction it’s likely that I wouldn’t have missed my footing. You see, that’s the trouble these days. We spend so much effort rushing about from task to task that sometimes, we miss things. Important things.
So this week I’m asking all my Buttons readers to slow down and take a moment to coppafeel of their boobies or pecs. Making sure that you check for anything that looks or feels a bit different. It won’t take long, you could even do it just before you hop into bed. This brilliant poster from coppafeel should help.
And promise. If you find anything that you are not sure of, please do not hesitate to book an appointment with your doctor. Even if it’s nothing. Trust me, you won’t be making a boob out of yourself on this one.
Be present and be aware, because this little check could save a life. #BreastCancerAwareness
