Standing at the base of the fort, craning my neck back by 50 degrees,
the height of the fort dazzled me. That was when I saw a young man,
half my age, climbing down the stairs of the fort looking totally exhausted.
Looking at him, I almost gave up the idea of the trek.
There are over 300 stairs, fit for Horse’s gait and height.“‘
I will have to climb the stairs using all my limbs”
I said to my husband. ……….I felt sweat over my forehead. …..
Without waiting for an answer from my husband, I decided to take up the challenge.
It was a promise I had made to myself,
to regain my fitness after getting Covid 19 on 25th June 2020
It was the month of August 2020, three months from getting Covid 19,
I thought I have recovered from it. But then simple tasks like climbing 2 floors,
walking 2.5 km, or even making a Seven-minute Speech felt like a Titan task.
I was getting easily breathless and often broke into a sweat doing even
when small activities. I used to feel occasional pain around the Rib cage
and now I knew my Lungs too have been impacted.
I had two choices, either let time heal my body on its own or
I help my body to heal my Lungs. I joined GYM, Yoga.
On 25 th March 2021 after climbing more than 300 steps in around an hour,
after watching a snake pass by in Infront of my feet and with a hole in my shoe,
due to a razor-sharp stone edge,
I felt content and happy.
Walt Disney said “’ If you can Dream it, you can do it’’
I totally validated it, just reading it. But Today
I realized between dreaming your dream and dreaming of doing it,
there is a bridge that we need to cross.
Working hard to ward’s the Dream and pure perseverance is the only way to cross it.
