On WUSA9 Live - Great Day Washington

We still have one more month to go in 2015, before I start counting the achievements of 2015. But this has been a year of personal growth and facing fears and overcoming challenges. I am often asked to share how I changed myself, or how I motivated myself to workout, or challenged myself to try new things, or had the courage to live by myself. I never had an answer ... I do today. It is because I made a decision. I made a promise to myself. 

One of my strong qualities (which my Mom often told me, but as always I never listened) is that all I need is, to make a decision. Once I make a decision, I follow it through. I never look back or waver from my goal.  

While growing up, I was an introvert kid. I was extremely self aware of myself and never wanted to put myself out there, due to the fear of making a fool of myself. I distinctly remember the day when I decided to change. I told myself I am going to be extrovert now. And I became. 

Then several years later, I found myself unhappy with my body. I was frustrated that I never fit into the clothes that I really wanted to wear. I never felt pretty. I never felt sexy. I never felt attractive. Then just like that, I remember one fine day I decided to change that. I joined a gym and started working out. 10 years later I am fit. I feel extremely sexy in my body and I love myself. 

Again came a time when I realized I do not take enough risks. I am concerned about people's opinions and views. And I decided I am not going to any more and I started taking pride in who I was. I decided to spend two weeks by myself this May. Went on a weekend trip all by myself. I was hesitant of videos, so I started a YouTube Channel. I was nervous of public speaking, so I participated in a Travel Panel. And I was petrified of going on LIVE television and then I went ahead and did just that. 

Morning of Tuesday, 24th November 2015, I went LIVE on Great Day Washington, to speak in National Vegan Month segment. It was a very last minute gig. Morgan asked me if I would be interested in doing it, as I am a (99%) Vegan? (Thanks Morgan!) I was nervous for a second, but that very instant I decided, " I am going to do it!" I had to keep the promise I have made to myself. 2015 was the year of saying, "Yes!". I said "Yes!" to every opportunity and challenge came my way. It might not be a big deal in broad scheme of things, but for me, it has been a leap. For which I am proud of myself. 

And in the spirit of Thanksgiving season, I would like to thank every single person, who has supported me, encouraged me, and been kind to me.
