This is the story of Cara Khan whose sense of spirit & adventure made her dare the seemingly impossible …
Cara E. Yar Khan is an international human rights advocate promoting the inclusion of people with disabilities within all facets of society.
Thank you my dear friend Ali Anani, for it was you who shared the above Ted talk link and suggested I share a few thoughts on her.
I dedicate these following verses to her daring spirit and dancing soul!
Inexplicable uncertainty in the now
Undefinable strength in the moment
Unimaginable challenges that arise
Infinite possibilities in the potential
Unstoppable hope in the living
Be it in strength or inspite of weakness
No matter the threats or unexpected opportunities
Life shapes and moulds in experience
Be it the desires, wants or needs
Life is a journey unto itself
Life is a circle in the living.
In salute to the very courageous Cara E. Yar Khan Her inspirational life story is an epitome of the magic of living a bigger bolder and yet a purpose driven life, In her I see the verve, and enthusiasm in pursuit of her Passions and her drive towards her Purpose as much as the Perseverance to attain it. And when these 3 Ps combine, success is bound to manifest itself. What matters is that she ignored what was preposterous and dared to dream.
Ignore the naysayers You have one life Live it well Give it the best you have got!
Keep the faith in trust and self belief Let go of illusions of less in assumptions You have everything you need within you In daring beyond doubts &fear Living life lovingly!
Truly nothing is insurmountable There is in you, the power That manifests when you need it most You may not know the strength And capabilities that you are carrying. But it is always there with you Simply trust in yourself To be there for you! You are more than enough for you!
I turn to self reflection and solitude walking in contemplative introspection, when I need to rebalance and align myself , as in doing so I am able to understand and reconsider how difficult it has been, given the circumstances and I comfort myself by acknowledging that I have done my best.
I am grateful for this ability to write and paint my heart away, and express myself through arts, just as much as being kinder and compassionate with myself. For in every such moment, I am learning to be a better me.
I also find great solace in meditative movements and soulful dancing that help me bounce back to normalcy.
