Day 258

You can’t be present if you’re still holding onto the dreams of the past – that’s what I learned today 😦

It’s 7: 25 PM on day 258 of my journey towards independence and I’ve managed to brush my teeth, feed myself Batura and baked beans for breakfast, publish my Kid of the Week feature, feed myself rice and curry for lunch, tweet about my Clean Water For All Campaign –no luck today but Stan (@Faryna) made a donation to my cause yesterday for a record THIRD time – thanks Stan 🙂 – attend a farewell party thrown in honor of the uncle and aunty who came to visit us yesterday – they are retiring and moving back to India – it was the longest 2 hours of my life LOL 🙂 – brush my teeth once more and feed myself a banana for dinner.

Today I was in the bathroom and I said to my mother with a laugh how about what that aunty said yesterday and my mother responded what’s so funny you will be healed all you need to do is believe and it occurred to me that the reason my mother couldn’t accept me as I was, was because she still held out hope that one day I would wake up and be able to walk. Are you blind to the possibilities of the future because you’re still holding onto the dreams of the past?

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!
