Day 238


Feeling guilty about something you have no control is a sure way to drive yourself crazy – that’s what I learned today 🙂

It’s 8: 03 PM on day 238 of my journey towards independence and I’ve managed to brush my teeth, feed myself a banana for breakfast, tweet about my Clean Water For All Campaign – no luck – feed myself Chapati and chicken curry for lunch, tweet some more about my campaign – still no luck 😦 – watch TV and continue reading A Purloined Life – the first of two books in Stella Cameron‘s Charmed.

Today both housekeeper #1 and housekeeper #2 failed to show up for work – housekeeper #2 was put in place in case housekeeper #1 couldn’t make it to work on a given day – and I was consumed with guilt knowing that the reason my mother couldn’t go to work was because she had to stay home and take care of me but after a short while I realized that I got up every morning and tried to be the best that I could be and that that was more than enough. Have you ever felt guilty about something that you had no control over?

if you’ve given to my cause or you can’t give now, please help me by sharing my cause with others. You can tweet about it like my friend Stan Faryna. This is the tweet he uses: @Nisha360 is a brave, smart young woman trying to make a better world for us all. Please help her do an amazing thing. http://www.firstgiving.com/fundraiser/nisha-varghese/nishavarghese

Stan’s very sweet for saying so, but feel free to write what reflects you best.

Thanks to all my friends out there who are helping me make my dream come true: to make a better world for all of us!

  1. Yes, Nisha. There’s a prayer for that. It goes like this:

    God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.
