Day 97


Pride goes before destruction, a haughty spirit before a fall. (Proverbs 16:18)

It’s 5: 22 PM on day 97 of my journey towards independence and I’ve managed to brush my teeth, feed myself Chapati – an unleavened flatbread – and beef curry  for  breakfast, spend some time with my cousin watching Cricket – a bat-and-ball team sport – it was the funniest thing my cousin was supporting India while I was supporting South Africa LOL 🙂 –       tweet about my Clean Water For All Campaign for a few minutes – still no luck 😦 –  feed myself  curry and rice for lunch, go to bathroom by myself – if someone had told me that the greatest lesson of the day would be learned in the bathroom I would have laughed in their faces LOL 🙂  exercise for 5 minutes – SO much pain 😦

Even though I’ve always needed help with the simplest of things I’ve always been independent of spirit which more often than not got me into to trouble as it did today – I was in the toilet attempting to grab the toilet paper to my right trying not fall and in that moment I realized that the only thing worse than asking for help is falling flat of my face and so I ended up calling my mother to come and help me out. Would you rather fall flat on your face or ask for help? 🙂
