Day 192

By three methods we may learn wisdom: First, by reflection, which is noblest; Second, by imitation, which is easiest; and third by experience, which is the bitterest. – Confucius

It’s 9: 08  PM on day 192 of my journey towards independence and I’ve managed to brush my teeth, feed myself a cheese and lettuce sandwich   for breakfast,  tweet about my Clean Water For All Campaign for a few hours – no luck –  feed myself rice and curry for lunch, tweet about my campaign some more – no donations were made but you would never guess who responded to one of my tweets … country music superstar Leann Rimes I know she’s just a person but come ‘on I’ve been listening to her music since I was 10 so naturally I was a tad star struck … it was a nice early birthday present from the man upstairs 🙂 –     feed myself Chapati – an unleavened flatbread – and mutton gravy  for  dinner   continue to  tweet about my campaign  –  still no luck – and watched TV.

Today as I was lying on my bed staring at the TV I couldn’t help but make a list in my head of all the things I’ve learned in my adolescences and this is what it looks like on paper:

Lessons I’d like to pass onto the next generation  

  • People will only treat you how you treat yourself e.i you have to love, respect and accept yourself before others can


  • Everything is in the way you see it e.g. you don’t have enough money to ride the bus you can either whine about it or you can say oh well I can walk I need the exercise anyway


  • Always be grateful for what you have because there’s always someone out there who has less than you

    Oh WOW! Leann Rimes made a donation?! That’s gotta feel awesome. Congrats!

    It is an unmistakable signal from the Universe (or God) that what you are doing… IS what you should be doing.

    And, Nisha, there’s no greater comfort and encouragement than that.

    I’m so happy for you.


    P.S. Add that to your list of lessons.

    • Leann Rimes did not make a donation… she just responded to my tweet… I did send her a link to my page though although I’m not expecting a donation because she’s a celebrity and I’m sure she gets donation requests all the time.

      Yours truly,
