This is the end. I'll post again tomorrow with the total amount raised, but I just ate my last meal of the week and I think it was the most satisfying thing I've ever had.
I wanted to discuss the things I have learnt in this past week, about myself and about the condition of living off such a small amount of food.
First off, the food. Throughout this week very little of what I ate was flavoured. There was one night that I ate nothing else with my rice and so I could afford to add a splash of soy sauce. I have learnt to appreciate what I'm eating, because when you are really hungry ANYTHING tastes good. I'm not just saying that. I used to absolutely hate rice. Now, pretty sure it's my favourite food.
It was hard. One of the most difficult things I've done and the temptation to cheat - especially today - was high. I stuck it out though and I'm sitting here feeling pretty darn proud of myself. If I were to say I learnt just one thing from this week about myself it would be that I am so much stronger than I thought I was. I think that given the situation people could be so much stronger. I'm not saying that to make people feel bad - quite the opposite. I just want people to realise how lucky we are. I get to go back to my coffee and cakes tomorrow. Tomorrow 1.4 billion people will still be undernourished.
It Is Not Fair.
I know I can't save the world, as was pointed out to me before I even started this. I sure as hell am going to try though. If everyone tried, we could.
I want to thank everyone for their support, for their sponsorship, but more than that. I want to thank my friends who have pushed me forward when I wanted to give up.
So that's all for now, peace and love to all of you. Just remember, you're just one person but you can and you will make a difference. Live positive.
Another post signed with love,
