Day 113


Criticism is something we can avoid easily by saying nothing, doing nothing, and being nothing” – Aristotle

It’s 8: 44 PM on day 113 of my journey towards independence and I’ve managed to brush my teeth,  tweet about my Clean Water For All Campaign for  most of the day – I went above and beyond today –   I am SO proud of myself 🙂 – feed myself Chapati – an unleavened flatbread – and chicken curry for bunch, watch the 3rd Test between India and South Africa – today was India’s day but we’ll do better tomorrow I just KNOW it 🙂 – feed myself Fish fingers  for dinner and   exercise for 5 minutes.

Yesterday we were at my uncle’s house and I was telling my cousin about something that someone had said to me on Twitter and he said why are you always on Twitter don’t you have anything better to do and even though what he said stung a little bit I realized that nothing he or anybody else said about me mattered because I knew who I was.  Do you crumble in the face of criticism? 🙂

  1. Nisha,
    I have learnt recently that the people whom criticise, often don’t know/ don’t want to know/or don’t understand the real you. The see the exterior and refuse to look deeper.
    I have some of these people in my life and I have learnt to not take what they say on board, simply turn away from them and/or just answer “don’t agree” and end the conversation there.

    As you said, you know you! You are the only expert on all things ‘you’. Your passions are yours and don’t have to be justified to anyone else.

    Well done Nisha. You still inspire me daily.
    Big hugs, Laura (@laurajteacheroz)

  2. I second Laura’s comment. You give your self permission to be, to do, to enjoy, to accept, to deny … beautiful things about you I admire most!

    • Aww… Thank you I admire you too – whenever I talk to you I always feel a great sense of comfort and that’s a quality that I would dearly love to replicate 🙂
