Day 2700: The Thing I Will Never Apologize For

Never apologize for expressing love, kindness and joy – that’s my message to the world.

 

It’s 1 : 03 PM on day 2700 of my journey towards independence and I managed to go drop my sister at airport – she’s back at university after summer break –  pray, read Psalm 34:14 and promote my 50 New Feet Campaign benefiting MiracleFeet –   A HUGE thanks to Piyuse uncle and family who donated $100   which brings the total raised to  $7 401 only $5 099 more to raise by June 17, 2018 to help 50 kids with clubfoot.

 

Today I was asked by someone I love why I’m overly expressive of my feelings towards people on social media (I’m like that in real-life as well I guess it’s more noticeable on social media because I use multimedia to express my feelings) the person who asked me this is rather stoic so it must make  him  uncomfortable that I’m not at all shy about my feelings anyway in answer to his question I said I was trying to be kind I will never apologize for trying to be kind the world needs more of it and people deserve to know they are loved by me.

Yesterday I found out I have Contractures (my tendons are getting shorter from lack of use) not Osteoporosis I’m glad I don’t have Osteoporosis but having Contractures means I have to go and see my Orthopaedic surgeon  in a few days to discuss possible surgery. Yay (not) I shouldn’t complain I’m grateful that my parents can afford to get me surgery if I need it.

If people could see inside my head they would be so surprised – that’s what I’ve realized.

This morning my sister walked into the dining room and asked why are you looking so glum? she naturally assumed I was sad about my possible Osteoporosis diagnoses meanwhile I was staring at my laptop screen frustrated that despite my best efforts I wasn’t moving more people to care about kids with clubfoot (my problems have never been the centre of my life that’s how I get through them).
