600 Days

TCS World 10K - May 19, 2019

I was discharged from the hospital on the 8th of March, eight years ago. When I was wheeled out of the hospital, I remember feeling extremely insecure and helpless; overwhelmed with emotions. 

The first four years were the toughest of my life; had to overcome anxiety, chronic depression, loneliness, and a lot of other demons. 

But, something amazing happened four years ago -- I decided to finally fight back! I was not going to let my depression hold me down any longer. Not surprisingly, the last four years have been my happiest. 

When everything seemed to be going well, a car accident in 2018 threatened to take me back to the depression era again. But, I was not ready to part with four fucking years of my life again!

So, as always, I fought back.

I came up with a simple yet radical solution -- to walk more every day. And, I decided to count my steps. It has turned out to be the best decision I have ever made.

After a steady start, I was confident enough to hit 10K steps every day.

With proper planning, discipline, and motivation, I completed 600 consecutive days of walking at least 10,000 steps.

As a result, my physical, emotional, and psychological well-being is better than it has ever been.

Extremely happy and content with life at the moment. At one time, I was bereft of hope, but now I am brimming with it. That's life, I guess. 🙂
