Our job as human beings is to try and be a better version of ourselves than we were yesterday whether we “succeed” or “fail” on any given day is besides the point – that’s what I learned today 🙂
It’s 7: 20 PM on day 380 of my journey towards independence and I’ve managed to brush my teeth, practice writing by hand, prepare and publish my Disability of the Day feature, tweet about my Clean Water For All Campaign – Chrissy (@chrissy_bertolo) made a donation and on top of that I made another donation on her behalf –she accidently sent money to my PayPal account intending to donate it to my campaign – thank you SO MUCH Chrissy 🙂 – feed myself a peanut butter sandwich for breakfast, watch TV feed myself rice and curry for lunch, watch some more TV, feed myself an oranges for dinner and brush my teeth once more.
This morning I saw an orange on the kitchen counter and decided that I would try and cut it by myself – somebody usually does it for me – but the only thing I ending up doing was stabbing the juice out of it eventually I asked our housekeeper to do it for me because I didn’t what her to get fired if I cut myself in some way in that moment I felt like such a failure but then I thought to myself so what I wasn’t able to cut the orange today a week ago I could hold a glass by myself doesn’t mean I eventually didn’t and that is my message to you guys do something you’ve never done before and if you don’t succeed the first time try, try and try again. Are you doing your job as a human being?
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!
