Day 286

Gratitude is the memory of the heart. ~Jean Baptiste Massieu

It’s 7: 21 PM on day 286 of my journey towards independence and I’ve managed to brush my teeth, get one hand out of my jersey’s sleeve – I have got to show my mother that if she continues to help me I’ll either end up institutionalized or worse being a burden on my siblings – spend some time with my cousin – some of things he says about gay people makes me cringe but I still love him like a brother 🙂 – feed myself bun, potato salad and beef curry for brunch, publish my Kid of the Week feature tweet about my Clean Water For All Campaign – no luck – read Do you know where you are going? by Janet Callaway (@janetcallaway) – a very well written and honest blog post about how to get where you’re going in your life 🙂 – and feed myself bun and grilled chicken for dinner.

Yesterday my father was talking to cousin and saying stuff like we don’t go anywhere, we don’t do anything, we don’t earn a lot of money and in that moment I realized that he would never have enough of anything because he couldn’t see what he already had. Do you have amnesia of the heart?

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!

  3. Hello Nisha
    Don’t ever think you are a burden on any one
    Family is there to help each other no matter
    what. I learned that the hard way. That is how
    I got down so bad and was hard to get back up.

    Think positive my friend. All so when some one
    goes to help you say please let me try. Set up
    some boundaries with your family some thing like
    give me 3 tries and if i can’t put on xyz than you
    can help me is that ok with you.

    For your dad I don’t no what to tell you it my
    take awhile for him to come around.

    I’ll never will understand why people still have problems
    with gay people or other races.

    Keep your chin up and keep smiling
    Hugs Bonnie
