Day 2477: Assumptions and Life

Don’t assume everybody’s like you– that’s what I have learned.


It’s 1 : 03 PM on day 2477 of my journey towards independence and I managed to pray, read Joshua 24: 15 have breakfast and promote my 50 New Feet Campaign benefiting MiracleFeet – total raised  $1 335 only $11 165 more to raise in 357 days to help 50 kids with clubfoot.


Recently I realized that my flaw in all my relationships is that I assume everybody is like me so I going through life thinking everybody is honest, kind, generous and compassionate suffice to say I’m disappointed most of the time I have to train myself to assume most people are not like me.

Day 137

The creative individual has the capacity to free himself from the web of social pressures in which the rest of us are caught. He is capable of questioning the assumptions that the rest of us accept. – John W. Gardner

It’s 8: 59 PM on day 137 of my journey towards independence and I’ve managed to brush my teeth, tweet about my Clean Water For All Campaign for a few hours – someone promised to make a donation – YAY!! 🙂 – feed myself bun and chicken for breakfast, feed myself rice and curry for lunch, went to physiotherapy – I know there’s no cure for Cerebral Palsy but I feel like I’ve turned a corner with my health before I use to exercise on a daily bases just to tell my physiotherapist that I did but now I do it for myself because I know there’s nothing in it for her 🙂 – watch TV and feed myself Custard for dinner.    

Today I was thinking a lot about make-up and beauty and wondering if I was the only woman in the world who felt completely comfortable in my own skin without any make-up on so I asked my followers on Twitter can you go a week without wearing make-up and to my amazement my older more mature followers said I do so quite often whilst my younger more inexperienced followers said I don’t think so which led me to the conclusion that when you have confidence you don’t need to hide behind a mask. Do you go along just to get along or do you ask questions that others wouldn’t even dream of? 🙂
