Do you know what’s worse than dying? – Never to have lived at all.

And this reality dawned upon me the day I was told I had just 5 years to live.

Most of us amble along through this journey of life – unconsciously, directionless. Until one day, the universe throws in a surprise – the kind that will push you out of your comfort zone and make you question the true meaning of LIFE.

We all want to live long. But do we live deep?
Do we live consciously, purposefully?

Well, I asked myself these questions over 14 years back on the day this event happened.

The 5 years have turned into 14 – and I might even get to a 40 – defying what the doctor had predicted for me. But what he said that day, forced me to find the true me!

Adversity oft brings out the best in you – only if you choose to learn from it. These were my lessons.

I’m grateful for the opportunity to share my story, as part of Success Gyan’s Super Speaker contest. And grateful, for life.
