It’s ageless..! The very moment we know we have to visit the doctor, we start feeling the utmost anxiety and the apprehensions just become our own. Isn’t it? When was the last time you visited doctor with a smile? Did it ever happen? I have always experienced the pain in the stomach and all the prayers just find there correct place in my heart because honestly speaking I am scared of Diagnosis.
On one of the visit to doctors, surprisingly I was happier because I thought I was recovering. However, to my illusionary happiness, my doctor portrayed in front of the disillusioned reality and I was stunned, upset and blank. I didn’t know future may just ruin because of the present and I was taking it so lightly! She was intelligent as she didn’t whip me with her anger or disappointment but left me all alone to contemplate. I took the medicine and smiled at her and turned back to my way to home. Actually, it wasn’t the first time when I was thrown into the fire ball but I think it was the first time I stood alone and was facing the crisis by myself. It was difficult to come to reality to one’s own weaknesses or flaws. I really didn’t have control on much as it was hereditary. You may be wondering how can I, so casually call it to be hereditary because it isn’t possible that without my own intervention I am into such an error of life. Yes, I too am equally part of it but sometimes shunning the responsibility brings you some peace.
So, this time I was determined. I told to myself it is enough! I have had enough of excuses and lethargy with respect to my health. I decided, I will soon tie the knots of the shoes and fight for my own self and win the race over my destiny. Trust me, it is very easy to put it in words and sympathize with others but difficult to apply and implement in one’s life.
A newer dawn was waiting at my door. I got up the earliest I could and drove myself to my specs, shoes, cell phone, ear phones, and the handkerchief. When Delhi was freezing at 3 degree Celsius I was out of my house, down the lane to the park near by my home. Oh, the air was gushing in me and I was feeling the coldest yet the hottest in the world. As I entered the park I realized I am the only morning walker of the day and I was impressed. I patted my back and told to myself, “Astha , now or never. Go for it and you have no choice but to live it and conquer it all through your life”. Such were my hopes as I began a lively, beautiful chapter of my life. While walking I came across this line in my head, “When did you feel the air lately”? And I knew I was writing on it. It was a tiring start but a refreshing beginning. The journey still continues to discover its brighter side and I am hopeful it continues forever.
So, I shall ask you same thing, When did you feel the Air lately? Oh, you must..! The birds chirping, the dogs company, the fresh breezy air, the rising sun, the mesmerizing aroma, the beautiful songs and most importantly the smiling YOU. I needed a reason for the same, do you really?
Something’s are cherished more when done with choice than with no choice.
Brace yourself to the indomitable experience of the dawny glory of your lives.
~ Astha ~
