Day 242

There’s more than one way to be of service – that’s what I learned today 🙂

It’s 8: 30 PM on day 242 of my journey towards independence and I’ve managed to brush my teeth, 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 luck – watch TV, feed myself custard for dinner, brush my teeth once more and continue to tweet about my campaign – still no luck 😦 –

Today I logged onto my Facebook account with the hopes that I could log off as soon as I was done answering a few messages but as you know life doesn’t always go according to plan Anthie – an Indonesian mother who has a son with Cerebral Palsy – started an impromptu chat with me and as I was advising her on what she should and should not do with her son I felt like God was smiling down on me and decided that I would make myself available to people and families affected by Cerebral Palsy because at the end of the day it’s all about paying it forward. How do you use the circumstances of your life to be of service to others?

Are we connecting on Twitter? If not, say hi at

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.

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. I’m sure your chat with Anthie was very helpful to her. You have a perspective that a lot of parents don’t get to hear. Sometimes we don’t realize that even the smallest effort can be of service to someone else. Back when my kids were teenagers and I was dealing with so much hostility and anger at home, I would be at the grocery store and the cashier would ask me kindly, “How are you today?” The sound of a kind voice literally brought tears to my eyes! As you say on your campaign page, no act of kindness, however small, is ever wasted.
