Joining the race and breaking the patterns…

Joining The Race...

For those of you who know me or have ever known me or would like to know me;) I would probably be the last person on your mind to have started a blog. I was certainly the last person on mine! But strange things happened, I started reading….A LOT, which eventually gave me the initiative to write…A LOT. Soon I started ignoring work and spent the office hours writing non-stop, till one day I was urged to make it public and hence here I am today.

I am an Indian girl with the aim to create my unique stamp in the world of fitness and wellbeing with the intention of joining the race to fight cancer. A world that is pretty male dominated. A world that has suspicious reactions towards anything associated with the likes of exerting any more energy than required.

I have a dream of building a successful foundation when I should be dreaming of marriage. I have a dream of facing reality and working towards being one of the best cancer exercise trainers out there, when I should be dreaming of being the best wife to my husband. I have a dream of exposing myself to the bitterness and sad realities of life to fight my personal inner demons, when I should be dreaming of acquiring a rich husband and secured financial wealth for the rest of my life. This is the dilemma an Indian girl faces. At 27 I have well surpassed the marriage bracket. I might not represent the typical Indian girl but we damn well have these notions ingrained in us.

So I’m breaking the pattern and fighting the dilemmas. No I am not getting married, no I am not thinking of becoming a billionaire or marrying one but I’m standing up against what I fear the most, which destroyed my life and took the most precious person away from me. Maybe this is one of my many ventures that I plan out for myself or maybe it’s my destined future (my family have their doubts in good reason) and we’ll soon find out, but till then I write this blog, not solely to spread awareness, or to be an articulate writer by any means (as you can see) or make a successful business out of it, but to share my journey. I want to try and find answers to a better life through exercise and a clean diet and show whoever is out there that we can win this battle and hear the music.

I also promise not to be so serious ever again!!!

      It’s so touching,straight from the heart….not easy to share such inner and personal feelings….I’m proud that I know someone like you….
      I wish that your dream come true very soon…and I really want to play a significant role in your foundation….

    My dear Samara,

    Your letter (because this is for the moment your blog) is very real, sincere and extremely optimistic in its underlying sadness, so I wish you a great luck for this new “adventure” and if you can accept an advice from an old uncle (I’ve known you since you were at primary school …):

    “Follow your instinct and not listen the free (?) advice or opinion of anyone. Often, indeed always, when someone is not able to do something, he/her tell you that you can’t do it! But 99% ot the times it’s wrong. If this will be your true destiny and passion you’ll find out very soon … believe me! ”

    Stereotypes, such as a multi-millionaire husband (most of the times an idiot) or a wealthness only materialistic, instead of an inner one … , have never written pages of history, nowhere. Also in India.

    When you will establish your Foundation (I hope soon) if you need a hand to “communicate” well the message I will be happy and honoured to help you, in the memory of one of the most beautiful, hard, dry, strong, but extremely loyal Ladies I’ve ever known in my life.

    A friendly kiss to your “guardian angel” …

    Wow Samara that is immense sense of purpose and focus i can see here. If there is any thing i can do to contribute my 2 cents about fitness, nutrition or help in any way i will be more than glad to lend a nudge to this fast accelerating train.

    Good luck and god speed to you !!!

    1. Samara says:

    First of all welcome to the world of being vegetarian I am proud that you have chosen this path , if there would be no obsticals and no challenges then there would be no self growth , we only grow when we have resistance. It is ironic how losing this precious person in our life’s have lead us to these beautiful life choices , she is guiding us and we will win . Our body is our only companion to the very end so I end by quoting a great man ” let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food” Hippocrates

    1. Samara says:

      Thank you lovely….yes you’re absolutely right i think we both know that obstacles only bring you positivity and success in the long run…its also ironic how losing this person has also gotten both of us to choose a path that is so different from one another but so in sync with its beliefs and values…love u. X

  11. Tony Droza says:

    God Bless You Samara you will always have that PRECIOUS PERSON beside you Guiding & Protecting You Forever. God Bless you Darling
