Day 119


Everybody must define for themselves the meaning of greatness – that’s what I learned today 🙂

It’s 10: 08 PM on day 119 of my journey towards independence and I’ve managed to brush my teeth, feed myself  sweet potatoes for breakfast, wheel myself from the dining room to the sitting room – I am amazed at how easily I can do it now 🙂 –  tweet about my Clean Water For All Campaign for a few hours –just when I was about to give-up someone made a $107 donation – I am SO grateful 🙂 –   feed myself rice and curry for lunch, feed myself a banana for dinner  and exercise for 10 minutes.

This morning, as I laid in bed making plans for the new day that was ahead  of me I overhead my parents talking in the sitting room and at first I ignored it because quite freakily I’m not much for eavesdropping, but then I heard the mention of my name and got curious as to what they were saying about me so against my better judgement I listened in on their conversation and heard my mother say Nisha is a lot smarter than Neethu – my younger sister – imagine how great she could have been if she could walk and with tears in my eyes I thought to myself I thought I was great and after 30 minutes of listening to the echo of my mother’s words I thought to myself my father discriminates against me, my mother feels sorry for me, my siblings resent me and the people I encounter ignore me and in that moment I felt like the only person in the world, but then it dawned on me  that  our purpose as human beings is to discover our  individual greatness. Do you define your greatness or is your greatness defined for you? 🙂

  1. Just WOW… Congrats on taking something that must have been so hurtful & turning it into a positive. I never struggled w/ allowing ppl to define me, it was always my past… the family that I came from, the abuse, chaos, traumas, etc., etc., etc., I became ashamed and I learned last year (in therapy) that shame was keeping me sick… so I have been stepping out in who I am TODAY & being thankful, too. *Big Hugs* to you!!!

    • Thank you for kind words of support 🙂 I wish you all the success on your journey toward inner-peace and hopefully one day you will realize as I have that you’re alright just the way you are if for no other reason than just because God made you 🙂
