Story of a Girl Who Went Through Tough Times But Came Out Stronger
I always felt near to nature, and me being a Himachali even added to it. My father and mother are Ayurvedic doctors and there are more doctors in our family And of course I got an idea of becoming a doctor by seeing them. After my high school I went for coaching in an institute but got into depression there. Thank God I was introduced to meditation before so I came out even stronger with the help of meditation. Then I gave exam (NEET) and got into a college but I knew something was wrong. I was always fascinated by the healing properties of nature and wanted to do something in it. My mother had done her post graduation in naturopathy and yoga. So I tried to find something on Internet that’s when I found my present college. I joined the college and I am doing my BNYS (bachelors of naturopathy and yogic sciences ) from the first institute of Asia. I was on cloud nine and I thought life is sorted. But I got many opinions of people on the profession I chose, I won’t lie I got doubts myself. Now I am in my final year and still when I tell someone about what I am doing they do not leave any chance to demoralize me. When I was in my second year I got a complication in my knee. I had Osteo-Chondroma (benign tumor of bone ) and the doctor said it’s having some malignant changes . So I had to get it operated . Well that two months of visiting hospital regularly and that surgery changed my life. I was limping for almost an year and even was made fun of. God was testing my limits. That was the time I was regretting everything in my life. I was told I cannot dance. I got frustrated as I loved dancing the most. Then after a week of surgery I stood up and grooved a little on one of my favorites of that time, couldn’t stop myself. My self confidence was more important to me than my stitches. Though it was not at all a good decision and three of my stitches broke. Because of which I got a big scar on my knee. I was really ashamed of it at first. At college one of my professor told me to leave this degree as I was not able to do yoga for few months . I was feeling like a failure and I even considered leaving it. But with the help meditation ,I took it as a challenge. I started to ignore opinions what people had. And i decided to not have a second thought. I owe my confidence and happiness to meditation and to Mother Nature. Thus , it’s definitely the best decision of my life. I know there will be many challenges but what’s life without some adventure. Now I Dance ,I do yoga and i am a proud Naturopath.
