Bad times have a scientific value. These are occasions a good learner would not miss. – Ralph Waldo Emerson
It’s 8: 07 PM on day 320 of my journey towards independence and I’ve managed to brush my teeth, feed myself an egg sandwich for breakfast, go visit my brother in hospital – we spent a few hours there feeding him and keeping him comppany while my mother came home to rest during that time church folk came with toys and sang Jesus Loves Me which I thought scared rather than comforted him I think it really made him feel like there was something wrong with him – tweet about my Clean Water For All Campaign – no luck today but AquaTerra Fund – a focused carve out of the existing Agriculture, Water andNatural Resources portfolios originated from the the multi strategy Earth Wind & Fire Fund – made a donation yesterday – thanks Annic – one of the heads of the funds – feed myself rice and curry for dinner and watch TV.
As you may or may not know my brother has been in hospital since Thursday and although this has been the worst thing that has ever happened to me – including my back surgery – I have learned that charity begins at home – I cannot tell you how many times I have told my brother that I was too busy to play with him because I was trying to change the world only now I understand that I could have changed the world just by making him feel special which is why I will drop everything I’m doing – regardless of how important it is – when my brother comes home and asks to play with me. Do you waste bad times wallowing in self-pity or use them to become a better human being?
