3 – Talk about an incident that impacted your life in a really positive way.

(Written By Dee Kay)

The journey of my life had it’s share of highs and lows. I don’t look back on my past as I have learned as much from it as it was possible moreover I believe that past is a good place to visit, once in a while, but it’s not a great place to settle. I will give a small summary of my life so far and then I will talk about the incident. I was born and raised in an army family so I had the luxury of traveling around India. I had some learning issues while growing up so I wasn’t the brightest of the lot but I was quite creative even in those days. I finally learned how to read and write properly when I was in 8th grade so you can imagine the amount of bullying I had to face. Fast forward to the end of schooling and start of college, I had my 1st break up and I went into severe depression. Took me 3 years to get out of the worst (for obvious reasons) as well as the best (for making me realize that I can survive without anyone) time of my life. Ever since the break up my career was in a downward spiral until I started writing more and more.

Now coming to the incident, it wasn’t something as dramatic as the stories I write but it was enough for me to bring some changes. A couple of days back, Roy (my co-author & partner in crime) was having a rough day at office (he has a full time job which is great) so as we always do, we talked. I being me, I started telling him how he could change his life or at least the situation. I said things and he kept listening. Soon we both started talking about life, it’s meaning, & other deep talks which we do more than often.

It was during this time that I started thinking about all the advises that I have been giving him. I just use to give them but never apply them in my life. If I cannot preach what I teach then I am nothing more than just a phony guy with a good notion of ideas. So I decided that I will lead by example. I will bring forth the best version of myself. After, we called it a day I sat down in the darkness and went through my life. Honestly, I wasn’t proud of what I saw rather what I have become. I knew things need to change. I need to change.

So I decided to take back the control of my life. I define the purpose of my life, I set clear goals for me to achieve, I got rid of all the distractions, I surrounded myself with things, words, poems, or speeches that inspire me, and I finally decided that enough is enough. It’s been more than a month now. I don’t have any social media account, I don’t have any songs on my phone, I don’t make any more excuses, I don’t show laziness, I strive, I put in the work, I motivate myself, I push my mind and body, and above all, I enjoy the process.

I write for 2-3 hours per day. I devote 3 hours for my inner self by meditating, reading, visualizing, and exercising. I sleep for 5 hours per day. I study for 8 hours a day. I spend time with my family. I do all the other household chores from cooking to washing because I am self efficient now.

So this is my small yet VERY BIG impactful incident.

  1. Congratulation Dee Kay! There’s no surprise that you were nominated 🙂 You deserve it. I loved reading what you wrote and the lines, ‘I believe that past is a good place to visit, once in a while, but it’s not a great place to settle’ are echoing in my head right now. We tend to hold on to the past so very dearly and it starts eating our present. I am glad you refused to be haunted by the ghosts of the past.

    I was intrigued by the stories you write. I did notice that they tend to, a number of times, revolve around war and soldiers. Makes sense now 🙂

    Keep writing and inspiring us!

    And thank you so much for the nomination. I feel humbled.

    • Thank you so much for the love and support 🙂

      We often tend to forget that if you need to reach a certain goal then we need to stop looking back all the time as the forward road require us to see forward rather than backward. I am proud that I have learned to look at my past only to motivate myself as to how far I have come.

      Being a Fauji brat and a writer, I taught that I should try to put the human aspect of a soldier’s life as most of the time people just look at the uniform rather than see the man in uniform 🙂

      You deserve the nomination 🙂 So thank you.

      Warm Regards
      Dee Kay

  3. WOW, thank you for nominating me. I haven’t heard of this award before now. It is so true that we often give great advice to others but usually fail to take it ourselves. I think it is easier to help others that it is to help ourselves, somehow…

    • You’re most welcome Kristian.
      This is a new awards created by a fellow blogger. 😊

      Yeah, it is easy to help others than oneself because in others cases we usually say things that make sense while when it comes to us we tend to forget the same things.
