“Be yourself; everyone else is already taken.” Oscar Wilde
It’s 6: 54 PM on day 106 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 a few hours – still no luck 😦 – wheel myself from the dining room to the sitting room – it barely took me two minutes this time – I am SO proud of myself 🙂 – feed myself plain yoghurt for lunch – weird I know LOL 🙂 – watched the 2nd Cricket between South Africa and India, exercise for 15 minutes – my mother almost broke my hips LOL 🙂 – and feed myself pizza for dinner.
I never understood what people meant when they said be yourself but after watching the game today and seeing how the South Africa players played in the face of defeat I realize that being yourself is having the courage to stay true to who you are even when things don’t work out exactly according to plan. Have you ever changed yourself to fit into a particular situation or to be liked by a particular person? 🙂
