The lessons I’ve learned in the philanthropic arena have permeated my entire life – that’s what I learned today 🙂
It’s 6: 54 PM on day 379 of my journey towards independence and I’ve managed to brush my teeth, practice writing by hand, play with my brother outside–it was sport’s day at his school and my parents excused him – feed myself a peanut buter sandwich and boiled egg for breakfast, watch TV, feed myself beef stir fry for lunch, prepare and publish my Disability of the Day feature and tweet about my Clean Water For All Campaign – no luck –
As you may or may not know my brother’s weight has been a huge concern for me – he’s 16 kg’s overweight according to his doctor – and although I have told him on previous occasions to go outside and exercise today I realized that me singling him out was probably making things worse so I decided to lead by example and go outside with him why am I telling you this I figured out recently while raising money for my campaign that people will do what you do faster than they will do what you say and I thought it would be a great lesson to share. Have the lessons you’ve learned doing what you love spilled over into your personal life?
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!
