“Will I be able to do it without their help or intervention or will I have to trouble them again to help me do it ” ; these were the thoughts that came to my mind when I went on the small trip above the Monteserrat towards San Juan view point near Barcelona. It was a slightly steep climb and there was more to see. But I
was am afraid of heights and getting so far the point was in itself a huge deal with my leg. So I asked my friends to go ahead and check out the rest of it and come back and in the mean time I can take a break. But after catching my breath, I started panicking! I wasn’t sure if I can climb down that steep path without holding something to make me feel safe ( all that falling and breaking really did a number on me) and I was so afraid that another fall is not gonna be pretty and I really really need to break the jinx that I get injured during every trip I take (just a few days left for the trip to be over). So after panicking and trying to calm down myself, I started to walk down slowly to the next point from where the path was relatively flat , at least not that steep to make me break into sweat. It took me 10 minutes to come down, whereas for the rest it was a just a minute down the path running. Let me tell you , climbing up even with the fear of heights and breaking your body parts, is easy. Getting down , when you can actually see the height and really get hurt by a slip, is the most difficult part. But then when I did it I was so thrilled and happy. Sometimes a little faith in ourselves and a little push to the inner self is all it takes.

As of now, its official. Continuing with my series of injuries, I finally went ahead and broke my little toe on the same left foot (yeah the one that was recently fractured and still in recuperation) and the worse part of it was that I knew I broke it the moment it got twisted in that damn sofa of mine. All I did was to get up from it to take something during my dinner. How can I break my toe just by getting up from a sofa in a very relaxed state of mind is a mystery to me. But since I have already read all about these things that are going to happen to me health wise in this year, all I did was laugh. Yeah.. I seem to be doing that now for every injury I get. But come on, what else can I do ? No point worrying over the pain. As of now, I think I am wiser to handle more than my limit of pain. And since I already know how to handle fractures, I did some first aid myself. The old doc whom I visited yesterday gave me some tablets for pain and to reduce the swelling.
And the first thing I hear from my family members when I mentioned this is, ‘ really? Can’t you be a little careful ? ‘ (as if I did it in a wreckless incident ), from my friends, ‘ Again!!!??? why don’t you tie yourself to bed for a month or two and not get up at all ‘ (urgh!! stinking proposal)
Good thing is that it doesn’t hamper any of my work, it pains and needs time to heal, but otherwise I can do my work of my own and don’t need to laze around and I decided to be a champion and go ahead with the beautiful day ahead just like the one in the photo (and not to mention the weekend as well 😉 ).

I will be going away again for some recovery and reflection time (yeah just like in that picture). I am not sure how long it is gonna take. So my posts may be scarce, but I will take time to read posts through phone if that is possible. Till then, take care and stay safe and healthy. And enjoy life as if there is no tomorrow and let nothing get you down :D.
