Weekly Photo Challenge: Regret

I am 36 years old, and I regret not taking better care of my physical health when I was younger. Although it’s never too late to start or continue taking care of your health, it gets harder as you get older. Especially if you never developed a regular physical fitness routine.

This climb up Enchanted Rock, in 2010, would have been much easier if I was more physically fit.

I never made it to the top.  Luckily, my son preferred not to go all the way up. He found the smooth surface a little too scary. I don’t blame him, I was scared, too.  And tired.

He made it!

Few months earlier

Despite having had knee surgery for a detached ligament a few months earlier, my husband did make it to the top. He was determined to prove that the surgery was not going to slow him down. However, he did regret not being more careful in the karate class where he tore the ligament sparring. The black bag on his side is a morphine pump.

About Claudia

Hi!! My name is Claudia. Blogging is sort of a creative/therapeutic activity for me. I blog about being a wife, mother, student, caseworker, and simply being human through photography, words, music, and blog challenges. Mental illness has also been part of my life, so you'll sometimes find mental health and psychology in my posts. I've dealt with anxiety and depression most of my life. And my husband has bipolar disorder. My hope is that I may show readers that it is possible for people to live positive, productive lives despite mental illness, challenges, or frustrations.
