Day 353

Your perception of your life and not the circumstances of it will be the difference between success and failure– that’s what I learned today.

It’s 7: 31 PM on day 353 of my journey towards independence and I’ve managed to brush my teeth, tweet about my Clean Water For All Campaign – no luck – feed myself an avocado sandwich for breakfast, tweet about my campaign some more–still no luck I keep reminding myself that I’m doing this for the kids whose names I don’t know–  feed myself rice and curry for lunch, exercise for a while,  watch TV, feed myself steamed vegetables for dinner and brush my teeth once more.

Last night laying in bed I remembered my cousin’s – sorry chechi (chechi in my native tongue of Malayam has one of two meanings it either means elder sister or elder female cousin)  you know I love you – Facebook status which read Justin Bieber, who is not out of his diapers yet and still breastfeeding DRIVES A FERRARI!!! could someone just shoot me now please ….NO JUSTICE!! arrrrgh!!! and I thought why can’t people look at someone who has less than them and just be grateful because let’s face it although most of us are not as wealthy as Justin Bieber we are still a whole lot better off than the people who live in Somalia or Sudan. Do you constantly compare yourself with people who have more than you and feel less than as a result?

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!

  1. Hi Nisha, i know it’s tough not having any luck with contributions sometimes, but you’re doing a fantastic job! Don’t be discouraged, it will get better.

  2. I promise to give more as soon as I can. Even though the money isn’t rolling in I can assure you that you are on a lot of people’s mind. Thanks for doing what you do.
