From Crushed Dreams to Cherishing Life: A Journey of Gratitude and Resilience

I was all set to participate in the Hyderabad marathon. I envisioned myself on the track, ready to conquer new challenges. Instead, life took an unexpected turn for me,  and I found myself in a hospital bed. I was experiencing excruciating abdominal pain and was suddenly rushed to the emergency room. There, I discovered that I needed emergency surgery to get rid of an organ.


The experience was both challenging and enlightening, and it made me reflect on the unpredictable nature of life. How an emergency can be just at the corner, all the time! While I have successfully averted the crisis and I’m safe,  this experience reminded me to pause, breathe, and cherish the blessings that surround me. It taught me the profound importance of gratitude and living in the present moment.


Some of the things that this experience has taught me are:


  • Gratitude for my Body: Our bodies are incredible machines, carrying us through our journeys with resilience and strength. It's easy to take our health for granted until it reminds us of its significance.
  • Respecting our Bodies: Respecting our bodies goes beyond just acknowledging their importance. It's about nourishing ourselves with the right foods, engaging in regular physical activity, and fostering a healthy mindset.
  • Cherishing Loved Ones: Life's uncertainties teach us the value of the relationships we hold dear. The unwavering support of my loved ones during this time has been a testament to the power of human connection.
  • The Power of Gratitude: Gratitude is a force that can transform our perspective. Even in challenging times, finding reasons to be thankful shifts our focus from what we lack to what we have.


I'm incredibly grateful for the amazing support I received from friends and my professional network during this unexpected phase of life. While I may not have run the race, I'm navigating a different kind of marathon—one that teaches adaptability, resilience, and embracing life's surprises.

We should remember to keep the smile on during life’s battles, Stay grateful, stay inspired, and keep shining.
