Success, recognition, and conformity are the bywords of the modern world where everyone seems to crave the anesthetizing security of being identified with the majority. ~ Martin Luther King, Jr.
It’s 8: 11 PM on day 125 of my journey towards independence and I’ve managed to brush my teeth, go to church – today’s service dealt with the renewal of our covenant with God – it’s basically like when a couple renews their wedding vows except in this case the renewal of vows wasn’t between man and wife but between you and God – I liked it so much that I plan to do it every day :)– go visit my cousins – the two hours we spent there felt like two decades LOL 🙂 – finish writing yesterday’s blog post – I had already written the middle part yesterday all I had left to do was write the beginning and the end – feed myself Chapati – an unleavened flatbread – and chicken curry for lunch, tweet about my Clean Water For All Campaign for a few hours – no donation were made today 😦 –feed myself sweet potatoes for dinner and exercise for 10 minutes.
As you know from my previous blog post we went visiting yesterday and I overhead the aunty of the house ask my mother so what does Nisha do nowadays and my mother replied she used to go to school but now she does nothing and in that moment I decided that I would rather be a nobody who does something than a somebody who does nothing. Would you conform to the ‘rules’ of society just for the sake of being identified with the majority? 🙂
