Day 116


The illiterate of the 21st century will not be those who cannot read and write, but those who cannot learn, unlearn and relearn – Alvin Toffler

It’s 8: 01 PM on day 116 of my journey towards independence and I’ve managed to brush my teeth, feed myself Appam – bread made of rice batter –   and egg curry for breakfast, drink a glass of Coke by myself,  tweet about my Clean Water For All Campaign for a few hours – sometimes you try your best and still don’t achieve the desired result 😦 –  feed myself rice and curry for lunch, drink a glass of water by myself, watch TV, exercise for 5 minutes and feed myself grapes  for dinner.   

This morning as I remembered that we had to attend a community barbeque tomorrow my heart was suddenly filled with dread because I knew that all I would see when people looked at me was undeserved pity and in that moment I realized that I could use the pity that people felt for me to get them to make donations to my campaign – the people at that barbeque are going to be in for a HUGE surprise LOL 🙂 Do you use the fact that people underestimate you to your advantage? 🙂

  1. Hi Nisha, iv spent a lot of my life without praise for my achievements and as iv got older & wiser LOL I take pure delight in trying my hardest at everything! Whenever someone doubts me I will do my best to prove them wrong! Don’t get me wrong, I’m not cocky or big headed, I just feel proud of myself, when I prove someone wrong and achieve something that know one thought I could do! So you go girl & get as many donations as you can! LOL Who knows you may even make those people question their actions and in turn do a good deed! Loads of Love Sweetie : ) ❤ Emma (sapphire100)
