Life Lessons From A Woman Who Did Everything ‘Right’ But Still Got A Lump In The Breast


Credit –

One of the most confusing moments in life is when you realised that you have done every single thing right but still could not achieve what you set out for.

It can happen in business, in relationships and even in health.

Makosi Musambasi did  everything right to be fit, healthy and free of diseases, until she discovered a lump in her breast.

She shares some of the life lessons she learned from that experience on her Instagram page.

According to her, when she discovered the lump, she was so scared and refused to touch her breast for a week but eventually had to visit the hospital.

Makosi is encouraging women to always feel their breast.

She wrote,

On a lovely August evening I had just come from the gym tired as usual! I remember on this particular day I went to the gym in the evening

You know that feeling when you remove your sports bra…the relief, you then scratch really well …and as I was scratching I came across what every woman dreads to come across! A lump!

I ignored it for a week, refused to touch my boob for a week, refused to pray about it or talk to anyone about it. It was in my head but not in my head

7 days later I went to see my doctor, he said because of my age it was not necessary to do an mri scan so he just ordered an ultra sound….
I will do a video of what went through my head for 6 months, my struggle with God.. .I wondered and asked I eat well I pray I train every day I am freaken #fitfam why this…

For now I give God back the glory that the surgery was success…
I learnt that there is nothing we can do to impress God …He is not a man that He can be impressed with what impresses us. When we are born we are given a script we have to act out…

That script sometimes will make you fight God (Jonah)..but still glorify Him
Ladies…feel your breasts…get tested…there is nothing to fear
Because that Unwanted visitor #death knocks on every door.

Life will humble you yes but remember God is God and you have to do your script justice…this is as much as I can dictate while someone types…when I’m better we will continue. 7/1/17 will always be a day to remember
