Day 2675: Everything and Everybody I Love 2018

Focus on love– that’s Jodene Shaer’s message to the world.

It’s 1 : 34 PM on day 2675 of my journey towards independence and I managed to pray, read  Isaiah 42:9 and promote my 50 New Feet Campaign benefiting MiracleFeet – raised  $6 816 only $5 684 more to raise by June 17, 2018 to help 50 kids with clubfoot .

 

Yesterday in a vlog entitled “I Don’t Know Much” Jodene Shaer suggested that instead of making New Year’s Resolutions and To-Do Lists we should make a list of what we love and although I’ll continue to keep my 2018 Goals list I have also decided to list of things I love as per Jodene’s suggestion. Take a look:

Everything and Everybody I Love 2018

  1. I love God
  2. I love myself
  3. I love every member of my family
  4. I love my friends
  5. I love Gerda
  6. I love my Superhero Catherine Constantinides (my Superhero is so special her kindness, thoughtfulness and humility continues to warm my heart and it’s something I aspire to every day)
  7. I love my favourite women in green glasses Ella Bella (she’s so herself all the time it makes my heart smile)
  8. I love giving, serving and being kind – I LOVE making a difference and being the difference (nobody has truly lived until they’ve seen wonderment in a child’s eyes I would give every last cent I had and even the shirt off my back to see that look again)
  9. I love MiracleFeet and the work they do (with $250 and no surgery they change the trajectory of a clubfoot-affected child’s life it’s really extraordinary)
  10. I love being outside and looking trees, flowers, birds and the clouds
  11. I love writing
  12. I love reading
  13. I love listening to music
  14. I love learning new things
  15. I love meeting new people
  16. I love being healthy
  17. I love counting my blessings
  18. I love doing things I’m afraid of
  19. I love doing things people say I can’t do
  20. I love showing parents of differently-abled kids that their kids have within them infinite potential )
  21. I love French Toast, Cinnamon Pancakes, Bran Muffins, Peanut butter-banana sandwiches, Custard Apples and Lunchbar

Day 2674: Always Be Reaching

Goals are dreams with a deadline – that’s what I know.

 

It’s 11 : 10 AM on day 2674 of my journey towards independence and I managed to pray, read 2 Corinthians 5:17 and promote my 50 New Feet Campaign benefiting MiracleFeet – raised  $6 816 only $5 684 more to raise by June 17, 2018 to help 50 kids with clubfoot .

 

Today is day 9 of 2017 and so far I’m actively working on 7 of 22 goals (most of them are things I’m hoping to do every day the whole year) I’m pleased with the progress made so far but not nearly satisfied (I’ll always be grateful for progress made but never content I plan to stay hungry and foolish for the rest of my life – ABR (Always Be Reaching)).

Day 2663: My Vision for the Future

“Fight against something and we focus on the thing we hate. Fight for something and we focus on the thing we love. “ – Simon Sinek

 

It’s 1 : 42 PM on day 2663 of my journey towards independence and I managed to pray, read Ezekiel 34:12,  have breakfast and promote my 50 New Feet Campaign benefiting MiracleFeet – raised  $6 166 only $6 334 more to raise by June 17, 2018 to help 50 kids with clubfoot .

 

Yesterday someone asked a question which made me realize that people in my life, though they truly love me, expect me to be an object of someone’s care for the rest of my life which is not going to happen EVER instead I’m going to find a way to be financial independent (in an ethical and moral way) and that financial independence is going to afford me the luxury of hiring more people to help me out physically and with the help of those people I will travel the world, meet new people and continue making a difference …I already have an extraordinary present but it pales in comparison to what the future holds I KNOW IT because I am the BEST  and DESERVE NOTHING LESS of course it goes without saying that I have to continue working really hard which I am more than willing to do.
