You have to be the best version of yourself even on your worst day– that’s what I learned today :(
It’s 7: 09 PM on day 437 of my journey towards independence and I’ve managed to brush my teeth, prepare and publish my Disability of the Day feature, tweet about my Clean Water For All Campaign – no luck – exercise, feed myself a chicken nugget sandwich for lunch, watch TV, and brush my teeth once more.
This morning while my mom was (excuse the graphic details in this post) wiping me I said it’s cold – I usually say that – and she just came at me it’s not enough that I’m wiping your blood now you’re complaining when I heard that I burst into tears because I was humiliated already not being able to take care of myself without her throwing all the things she did for me back in my face as if that wasn’t bad enough she told me – because she was angry that I told my father to take her with when he went to drop my sister off at school –that I’m the reason my dad treated (and still treats) her badly to which I kept saying with anger it’s not my fault, it’s not my fault, it’s not my fault but now I realize that what I should have done was say I forgive you sincerely and forget everything she said because that’s what Jesus would have done so when my mom comes back from work that’s exactly what I’m going to do. Are you able to be the best version of yourself even on your worst day?

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!
