Life is a bouquet of moments.
Life provides us with endless opportunities.
Such opportunities knock on our door often.
Such opportunities are to be grabbed whenever they present themselves before us.
Opportunities like these prompt us to #StartANewLife.
Opportunities like these prompt us to put our confidence, courage, optimism and presence of mind to the test.
Such opportunities are aplenty.
Remember the time when you were born?
That was an opportunity for your parents.
An opportunity to provide you with all that you needed, to care for you, to love you to their heart's content and to nurture you.
Remember the time when you stood on the threshold of leaving home for school?
That was an opportunity for you to embrace a better 'You' for the time to come.
Remember the time when you bruised yourself in front of your schoolmates, during playtime?
That was an opportunity for you to learn, to fight your pain, and to combat your embarrassment.
For it was perfectly alright for a crawling toddler to trip over their knees, when taking baby steps.
So was it for you, who was new to the ideologies of team - work, group activities and play.
However, life is made up of 'larger-than-life' moments also.
There are bigger twists and turns for you as a mature individual, waiting to turn your life upside down.
And, it is these twists and turns which make sure that you emerge as a winner, every single time.
For every girl, it isn't easy to leave behind her abode, her parents and her siblings.
For every girl, it isn't easy to embrace all her relationships at once, condensed into an invitation card.
My story wasn't different.
It wasn't different at that time because what life was going to present to me afterwards was going to be different.
That turning point.
That bold step for me was to leave my loved ones behind.
That new individual.
That new individual, who emerged from there, had matured.
She had grown mature enough to embrace matrimonial vows, but on the inside, she was as immature as the five-year-old persuading her father for a cotton candy with hues of pink. :)
That was the time when I went ahead.
I went ahead to #StartANewLife.
I am glad I did.
There's been no looking back, ever since! :)
For that bold step, which changed my life.
For the best.
