Life is a turmoil of ups and downs. CAN I? Is a question that I asked my self once. The answer to which was, YES! I CAN. It happened 10 years back when I was stuck between the clusters of failures.

I still remember the day when my coach said "You have to do it, look everyone is doing their best, I have taught you all the techniques of excelling this event." And here I am about to burst out with that pressure. While I was thinking all this the judge blew the whistle and before I could say some thing, I was on the mark to dive and swim the 100×2 meter free stroke swimming state level tournament. Struggling with all those pressures, what better can you expect out of me...I LOST the game. I was a total failure, everyone was staring at me as though I am a holy piece of shit that was good for nothing. Tears trolled down my eyes and cried like no body in a corner... after hours of moaning, a strange voice came from somewhere...

"Are you seriously a looser? Don't you think you need to give it one more try...you still have one event left..and what are you doing siting here and moaning over your failures...Buck up!!!" It said and 'IT' was nothing but my conscience. And I was like, "Yes! you right my body, I still have a chance, I can do it!! I was again boosted by a dose of energy." 

The rays of the next morning were filled with zeal and so was I..!! After all the rituals of whistles, judges, encouragement and get set go....a moment came where everything stopped and my 'IT' came again and asked me "CAN YOU?" I asked myself, "CAN I?"...before the answer came I was in the pool stretching my arms out and holding my breath and with all my soul and energy sunk in that 100×4 relay race...I bucked up again and again...the energy was coming to an end now..I was running out of zeal and breath...the arms those were stiff and tough were in scorching in pain...and I reached the finishing point..I banged the wall with my hand as a sign of FINISH...the race was over..I was out of the pool but still there was no answer to my question...

After couple of minutes, the answer was near my heart...shining and standing loud, the crowd apart...there was my answer embossing in gold...a STATE LEVEL GOLD MEDAL which shouted YES, I CAN!! Yeah...I won it...I won over my sorrows....

If I can, every one can....

So buck up..

Its now or never

Better be now than never...

Life is full of opportunities..no matter how many passed by, all you need to stand through all the failures and ask yourself, CAN I? One day the answer to your question will definitely be as YES..!!! Be a warrior....fight your sorrows...you are special that gGod chose you because even God thought YOU CAN!!
