Day 414

When you take the words I can’t out of your vocabulary nothing’s impossible – that’s what I learned today 🙂

It’s 7: 28 PM on day 414 of my journey towards independence and I’ve managed to brush my teeth, feed myself All-Bran Flakes with banana for breakfast, publish my Disability of the Day feature, tweet about my Clean Water For All Campaign – no luck – feed myself yoghurt for lunch, watch TV, tweet about my campaign some more– I finally got around to making a donation with the money my mom owed me for typing for her so I’m 87% to my goal I’m so happy 🙂

Yesterday I was watching an episode of 3 Talk, a popular talk show in South Africa, where they were discussing diabetics and the consequences of it suffice to say I was scared (excuse my language) shitless because although I tested myself a few months ago and everything come out fine – my sugar level was 5 (anything between 4 and 7 is healthy) – I still had two of the three risk factors someone needed to have to get diabetics – I was not physically active and I had a positive family history meaning people in my family had diabetics – so I decided to dance lying down (I probably looked so stupid doing it but hey at least I broke a sweat nobody ever said you had to be standing up to exercise) why am I telling you this you may ask to show that if a person who has Cerebral Palsy can dance you can do ANYTHING. Do you use the words I can’t as a synonym for I don’t want to?

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!
