It always seems impossible until it is done. – Nelson Mandela
It’s 6: 51 PM on day 280 of my journey towards independence and I’ve managed to brush my teeth, feed myself an French fries and a polony sandwich for breakfast, tweet about my Clean Water For All Campaign – no luck – watch TV, tweet and Facebook about my campaign – no luck but at least I know that I know that I did EVERYTHING I could to make a difference 🙂 – feed myself rice and curry for lunch, continue to tweet about my campaign – still no luck but hey tomorrow is another day 🙂 – feed myself boiled tapioca and beef curry for dinner, watch some more TV and brush my teeth once more.
As I’ve mentioned in one of my previous posts being an Indian girl/woman means your whole life is planned out for you, you grow up, go to school, go to university, get a job, get married, have 2-3 kids and live out the rest of your life there are no shortcuts or detours which is why I nearly fell off my chair when I found out yesterday that my cousin was going to Europe on vacation although now that I think about it this is what I would have said if I were talking to her on the phone thank you for leading the way maybe now someday when I have enough money and want to go on vacation mommy and daddy won’t have a problem with it. Do you have it in you to be like my cousin and do something that has never been done before?
Are we connecting on Twitter? If not, say hi at http://twitter.com/Nisha360
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://bit.ly/hC7vOu
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!
