Actress Sonali Bendre, who was undergoing treatment for cancer in the US, is heading back home. In a post she shared on her social media page, Sonali spoke about her journey so far, and how she is overjoyed to be heading back home to India where she can once again be with her family and friends. She has been quite an inspiration from the time she came to know about her illness, posting messages that are heartfelt and encouraging.

In the latest post that she has put out, she is seen outside, about to enter a car. She wrote about how even though her fight is not over as yet, she is looking forward to the break as she heads home.

“They say, ‘Distance makes the heart grow fonder’. It sure does. But let’s never underestimate what distance teaches you. Being away from home in the city of New York, I realized I was walking amongst so many stories. Each trying to write their own chapter in different ways. Each struggling to do it but never giving up. Each taking it #OneDayAtATime.

“And now I’m on my way back to where my heart is. It’s a feeling I can’t describe in words but I’m going to try – it’s the joy to see my family and friends again, the excitement to do what I love and mainly the gratitude for the journey I’ve had up until this moment.

“The fight is not yet over…but I’m happy and looking forward to this happy interval 🙂 It’s time to learn that there is a new normal out there and I can’t wait to embrace it and #SwitchOnTheSunshine. #NowPlaying #AdventureOfALifeTime. And as my adventure with life continues these words by Chris Martin hit home, ‘Everything you want is a dream away. Under this pressure, under this weight, we are diamonds taking shape…'”

Sonali has never let anything get her down, and even in New York, where she underwent treatment, she was out and about. She even attended Priyanka Chopra’s bridal shower, and later celebrated Diwali with her husband and son.

Being part of a book club, she also shared what she had been reading with her followers, and even though her eyesight was affected by the chemotherapy treatment she had to undergo, she did not stop.

From all the posts that she has put out, it looks like nothing will stop Sonali from living life to the fullest, which is something of an inspiration.
