Day 198


When all else fails go back to gratitude – that’s what I learned today 🙂

It’s 10: 42 PM on day 198 of my journey towards independence and I’ve managed to brush my teeth, feed myself Spring rolls for breakfast, tweet about my Clean Water For All Campaign  for a few hours – no luck – feed myself rice and curry for lunch, email some people about my campaign – still waiting for replies –  feed myself Chapati – an unleavened flatbread – and vegetable curry  for dinner, tweet about campaign some more –still  no luck – and watched TV.

Today as I was lying on my bed attempting to turn to left-hand side – I was on my back – I remember thinking I hate my body, I hate my body, I hate my body but after a few moments had passed I came to the profound realization that my body – though it didn’t work like everybody else’s – was a capsule for my soul and with that I stopped being such an ingrate. In your moments of frustration do you get mad at life or say thank you God I’m still alive?

  1. It is a profound peace that we receive when we say, Thanks be to God, in the midst of our troubles or worries.

    Sometimes, we can get there, first, by appreciating those near and, especially, those near to your heart and hands.
