Day 262

You’ve got to rise above daily humiliation and degradation to become something spectacular – that’s what I learned today 🙂

It’s 7: 40 PM on day 262 of my journey towards independence and I’ve managed to brush my teeth, feed myself sweet potatoes for breakfast, watch TV, feed myself Chapati for lunch, go to physiotherapy (see pictures below), tweet about my Clean Water For All Campaign –no luck but on this plus side my new friend, Adelaide Dupont, did write a blog post about my campaign earlier today – thanks Adelaide 🙂 – feed myself rice and curry for dinner and brush my teeth once more.

Today I was laying on my bed facing the black headboard when the memory of my mother describing – in detail – to my aunt – my uncle’s wife – how she bathed me suddenly popped into my mind and in that moment I felt as humiliated as I did the day I overhead the phone call but then I realized that I shouldn’t care what people think of me because the majority of them had already made their minds up about me. Are you using all the wrongs committed against you as an excuse not to be all that you can be?

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. Nisha! you have come far in your journey and you are still going strong! How many new things have you learned since the start? Well I guess the number does not matter but that you are becoming more and more independent! 🙂 I’m sure your parents are so proud of you. And I am sure they are scared because you break up old habits and they lose with every ‘step’ you make their little helpless girl.
    You are strong and will be whatever you dream of. Hugs!
    Oh and what a nice surprise to see pictures! Great! I loved that!
