Day 247


A good teacher is like a candle – it consumes itself to light the way for others. – Author Unknown

It’s 7: 31 PM on day 247 of my journey towards independence and I’ve managed to brush my teeth, feed myself bread and scrambled eggs for breakfast, drink a cup of coffee, tweet about my Clean Water For All Campaign –no luck – feed myself rice and curry for lunch, tweet about my campaign some more –still no luck :(– continue reading A Purloined Life – the first of two books in Stella Cameron‘s Charmed watch TV and brush my teeth once more.

As you may or may not know after twenty-five years on air The Oprah Winfrey Show is coming to a close and in honour of that I would like to share with you some of the lessons I’ve learned from the most powerful woman in the world. Take a look:

  1. Over the years like you I have gained a lot of insight from her show. For me my Oprah moment, when she said, “When people show you who they are believe them” I have learned a lot about myself and the world around me listening to her over the past 30 plus years. (She had a television show here in Baltimore before the Oprah Winfrey Show) Also know I have gained many pearls of wisdom reading your blog as well. I am very thankful I found you…feeling very blessed!

    • What she said is so true so often we only see what we want to see in people 🙂 I’m glad you’re a little wiser for reading my blog although I think it was me who found you LOL 🙂

      Yours truly,
      Nisha
