Ruin is a gift. Ruin is the road to transformation – Julia Roberts in Eat Pray Love.
It’s 8: 16 PM on day 179 of my journey towards independence and I’ve managed to brush my teeth, feed myself bread and jam for breakfast, tweet about my Clean Water For All Campaign for a few hours – no luck – feed myself rice and curry for lunch, go to physiotherapy, tweet about my campaign some more – my new friend from Finland @ptarkkonen (Petteri) made a donation of $53.85 – thanks for donating even though you didn’t know me 🙂 – what I LOVE most about my campaign is that it’s truly a global effort from Australia to India everybody has helped out – feed myself rice and curry for dinner, spend time with my cousin and tweet about my campaign some more – no further luck but I suppose $53 is better than nothing 🙂
Today as I was staring at the circular-patterned curtains hanging in my room I couldn’t help but notice the parallels between the earthquake in Japan and life and I thought to myself Japan has one of two choices either they will raise out of the rumble or they will stay exactly where they are and having met someone from Japan I knew that the people of Japan would most likely choose the former. Do you equate ruin with devastation or transformation?
