At 45, you take nearly everything in stride and realize each day is really a gift.
Every birthday I go to the doctors (eye, teeth, GYN) and spend the day honoring my health in honor of my departed diva, Angela Pittman.
We called her Angie and she was life PERSONIFIED.
If you ever felt the sun bright on your cheeks, then you knew Angie; if you ever laughed so hard that you (almost) wet your pants, then you knew Angie; if you heard some crazy ass darn near impossible story, then you knew Angie; if everyone on the street was an auntie, uncle, and play cousin, then darn it, you knew Angie.
Angie was just that chick – warm, kind-hearted, beautiful and a genuine soul. We bonded on the job working in entertainment and kept in touch from the moment we left a video shoot to simply compare notes. It was my dear girlfriend that introduced me to “colonics” and I made it a ritual each jaunt to LA.
I only knew her for 5 years but those moments together were crisp and real. Angie was a marketing genius with pure authenticity and a love for her family like no other.
Angie allowed me to witness the big “C” up-close and personal.
It was her personal crusade to give breast cancer style, dignity and courage. Angie’s message about taking care of the body and getting annual mammogram is something I take seriously.
I empower every man and woman to get checked and know his or her bodies.
Angela Pittman’s tips to living a bliss life:
1) Live with purpose
2) Smile – you made it through another day
3) Do self breast exam
4) Get a mammogram if of “age”
5) Feel the passion and never give up
Thanks Angie for coming into my life and allowing me to learn and witness your grace. I miss you so much! Love your KT!
