After all this time, do you believe in magic?
-Yes I do, ofcourse I do.
Okay folks, that’s me on the extreme right in both the pictures. Do you see the utter transformation? Do you?
I logged into WordPress with the intention of writing something very eloquent but words fail me.
Isn’t it uncanny how we do not know it is magic while it is happening?
I mean the process is just a process, the results are everything to make believe a human mind, what’s beautiful is beautiful.
After all these 6 months, today, my laughter has a sound that might brighten the walls of a dead house. My mundane has been transformed into my biggest muse and I do not have the right words to unravel the kind of emotion that is keeping me out of place.
So, I’ll just rant what comes to the tongue of my mind.
My biggest anathema, some 6 months back was the appearance of me in the mirror. You know, sometimes expectations can totally blow you away like a hurricane. My dreams have always been big, I want to join the Military but I weighed 80 kgs, so when I moved out of my parent’s home to pursue higher education, I was a big chunk of meat and I knew at the back of mind that my dreams would come crashing infront of my naive eyes all too soon. My parents tried to counsel me out of the dream due to obvious reasons, to which my mind responded positively but my heart was at war!!
With all the slipshod and haggard, I started studying communication at school. But what do you do when you have a battlefield inside of you?
I did. And it was pretty evident.
6 months passed in an oblivion and extreme flounder. But that’s the thing about dreams, they do not leave you alone if you give them that kind of power. I got myself registered to a gym, a pretty small one with meagre facilities and limited machines because that was all my pocket money could accommodate. I think it is rightly said that everything happens for a reason so on account of fewer machines, I worked out manually. Thanks to the generous trainer. He told me he saw a spark in me and that’s why he felt the urge to help and transform me, however, I do not believe him on this one. He is a great man!
I was managing 6 hours of school with 3 hours of workout. Diet food was a catalyst, but I had to cook by myself because they do not provide you with diet food. Also, I had to do my laundry and other things. And I had to study for school and military, both!
As it is, the most beautiful diamonds are born in the dirtiest of coal mines. My obduracy and persistence worked wonders.
It is as simple as it may sound, to get there, you have to get going. Just concentrate all your energies to the center of your ambition, rest will be taken care of.
Some dreams do not let you sleep, I sleep like a dog to be honest just so I do not miss out on my boxing classes at 5:30 am (Yes, I just started last month).
All you need is an inspiration, and it is leveraging when It comes from the helm of your soul. Yes, inspire yourself.
So, I lost 11 kgs and am still in the midst of the process. 15 more to go!
Also, my stamina quadrupled and I do not feel tired anymore. The mirror image of me allures me all the time and I am a happier person. I am motivated by myself and my ambition.
And above everything, I am proud of myself.
And hey, I’ll try for military after I am done with my communication degree.
