A turning point in my life

Join in the fun at FTSF. 

Today's sentence is: 







Man is so intelligent that we tend to plan our future, not just with regards to savings, but also what to possess and create in our junction of time. Since the time is one thing young adults have in plenty thus, they do not fret over a thing since their perspectives are narrow, and 
I hit a turning point in my life when I was diagnosed with arthritis.

Things were going just as planned. We had a baby, bonded well with him during maternity leave, my mom paid a visit from India, and I went back to work.

Man feels so smart when what he plans gets executed. That feeling of pride was within us.

One fine day, I woke up with swollen fingers and heavy knees. I did not know what had come onto me. I tried to exercise, but it was very difficult and painful. Took the day off to understand what was going on within me. Unfortunately, it was not just a day affair. This turned into a week and then after a blood test realized I had arthritis.

I was devastated, cause my mobility became limited, and I had an infant to take care. Although my mom and my hubby were my constant support but, I felt useless sitting around with swelling and complaining about my pains.

Weeks turned into a month, and I decided to quit my job. I decided to take charge of my self and my family. Slowly, but with steady steps I fought my inflammation while talking positive every day.

Things were tough, and when I look back; I still get shivers of those days when I could not move an inch without pain, and tears were my constant companions.

I am glad that this auto immune disease was my turning point in my life. It took me on a path of spirituality where I was forced to fill myself up with positivity each day to get my limbs moving.

Gradually, it became a habit, and today I cannot live without it.

That incident closed my doors to a biotech opportunity of research and development, but made me look into my deeper self and dig up my passion.

Writing is one of them.

I am happy that while sitting at home, I got an opportunity to make virtual friends who inspire me to write better.


Mantra for today: Man plans for his future, but only 1% of it gets executed. 99% is what destiny has in store for us.
