RCME- My Celestial Experience !
Greetings to all! Through this article I would like to pen my transformations due to RCME. I submit my humble salutation for pulling me over, pushing me through the not so comfort zones , in my journey for the past 7 years with RCME, to discover my new self .
First and foremost, as chairman of Rotaract Club of Stella Maris College for 4 consecutive years, the energy, enthusiasm, dedication of the girls was so contagious, I couldn’t resist change! Each year was amazing with new learning from the girls. I believe RCME, is energy!
Public speaking has always been my area of interest from young age and RCME provided me multiple platforms to address audience. Each stage, I was becoming better in my communication and delivery. I believe RCME is an opportunity!
The joy of giving through music, songs and emotions – Idhayaganam. Visit to homes, orphanages, special schools, reinforced my feeling , “count your blessings! Do not complain.” I believe RCME, is noble!
The breakthrough in my health and fitness happened during 2020. The enormous confidence that set in when I started jogging and went on to participation in half marathon- the physical changes in me are way insignificant compared to the inner changes – _a new direction in my health regime, a new life ahead! Consistent Self Discipline is what I learnt during these times. I believe RCME, is discipline!
First timer in RCME board in the year 2020-21. You run the Day or the Day runs you – I felt the true sense of this statement during this period when I served as Director, Health. Learnt the significant difference between movement and achievement during these days. Daily planning, prioritizing, implementing, following, finishing – _became an integral part of my routine – a daily habit built in. I believe RCME, is doing, not saying! Ask, thy shall be given” is a well known biblical phrase. On the contrary, I was given, without asking anything ! During the covid II crisis, support in the form of funds, help, volunteering projects , equipments – _all emerged from different directions both inside the club and from their extended family. I believe RCME, is empathy!
To conclude, Attitude of Gratitude is the Fortitude for a progressive life ! RCME was instrumental in installing this Attitude of Gratitude in me. I truly believe RCME, is an inspiration!
