If

I picked up this book the other day If2 (Questions for the Game of Life). Glancing through it, I saw nothing but "If " questions (500 to be exact). I thought it might be fun to post one of the questions now and then on those days I don't have anything specific to blog about (like today). You don't have to answer (comment). It will just give you something to think about. Of course, if you want to comment, please do. It will be interesting to read what you have to say.

IF YOU COULD HAVE TAKEN BETTER CARE OF ONE THING IN YOUR LIFE, WHAT WOULD IT HAVE BEEN?

I think it only fair that I answer a question or two.
I would have to say MY HEALTH. Growing up we think we know what is best for us and we don't want to hear the "You should" statements. Of course, we grow up and wish we had listened. I'm sure if I had paid more attention to the things I ate, etc., I would be in better health today.
I have a feeling this is going to be the answer that most of you come up with.

No, I feel that I have taken pretty good care of my health all my life. I used to be an exercise fanatic and I still walk every day and eat pretty well. No, the first answer that popped into my head was my Mom. I wish I had taken better care of her when she was dying from cancer. I wasn't her caretaker but I should have gone to visit her more often.

I'd have to say my feet, I went barefoot as much as possible all my life and now my feet are worn out. I would have said my mom but Jan said it so well.

My body! I was lucky when I was younger, and was thin and pretty healthy, but I neglected myself a lot when my kids were little. But I can gain some ground now, I hope! :) xoxo Pam

I would have taken better care of my son. I was a single mother most of the time and my children were latchkey children. My son won an art scholarship and I wish I had made sure he'd gotten to and through college! And taken better care of him when he was little too.

Oh, my body definitely!!! I use to take ballet, and I have often wondered if I had continued, even at a recreation level, if I would have had more respect for all of me! as in, not working like a man/plow mule, doing really STUPID things (ahem!), being more guarded on nutrition....
But then, ballet is a practise that has it's own form of problems later in life....
Maybe we're just supposed to accept where we are??? And maybe to a certain extent, where we end up is inevitable?
You're asking a woman who has not finished her morning coffee.... ;)

XXOO!!

I'm with you Audrey. I wish I had taken better care of my health. I'm certainly paying for it now. Hindsight is wonderful and I can see at which points my mistakes were made, too bad I didn't realize it then!

No question - my health.

It would be satisfying if I had not kept company with a few people that I worked with a long time ago. I feel that my reputation might have been tested because of them. Although it was many years ago I still remember these folks and now know that it did not earn me any points. Now maybe I can bury this memory.
