“Let no one ever come to you without leaving better and happier. Be the living expression of God’s kindness: kindness in your face, kindness in your eyes, kindness in your smile.” – Mother Teresa
It’s 8: 19 PM on day 90 of my journey towards independence and I’ve managed to brush my teeth, feed myself Batura – deep fried bread – and chicken curry for breakfast, tweet about my Clean Water For All Campaign for most of the day –I must have asked about 50 people for a donation and I either got a kiss off or a I congratulate you on the great work your doing – I feel like pulling my hair out 😦 – feed myself rice and curry for lunch, go visiting people – it was heartbreaking my father had to check if there were any other people in the house – people other than the people we were intending to visit – before he finally put me on the wheelchair and took me into the house 😦 – exercise for 20 minutes – I was having too much fun teasing my grandma about her appetite or lack thereof to be in pain LOL 🙂 – and feed myself bun and chicken curry for dinner.
I met this elderly gentleman today and we got to talking when we were done he went back to the other room to talk to the adults and I overheard him say to my parents she’s such a happy child and despite my annoyance at being referred to as a child I couldn’t help but smile because his remark proved the theory that I’ve been living under for the past few years – you reflect to people how you feel. What do you reflect to the people that you interact with? 🙂
