Learn to live in a vain world without feeling the need to change yourself – that’s my message to the world.
It’s 11: 04 AM on day 2304 of my journey towards independence and I managed to -pray, read Colossians 3:9-10 and work on my 25 Smiles Campaign – Ashwell Gleason donated $5 (thanks Aswell 🙂 ) which brings the total raised to $9 655.04 only $2 844.96 more to raise to reach my second goal of raising $12 500 for Smile Train before Jan 10 2017 (SO SO SO GRATEFUL to everyone who has supported this campaign so far ).
Recently I went to an event and this lovely woman approaches us (me and my family) looks at me and asks my mom what’s wrong with her face (I have a few moles and blackheads) I was shocked by the bluntness of the question but I won’t suddenly start wearing make-up to look flawless because some people have a problem with the way I actually look I’m human and imperfect I refuse to put a mask on for the world I’d rather have a flawless heart, a flawless spirit and a flawless soul than a flawless face. Take me or leave me but world I refuse to let you change me.
My job in this life is not to make other people happy or comfortable but rather it is to live as authentically as I can – that’s what I realized yesterday.
It’s 11 : 00 AM on day 2220 of my journey towards independence and I managed to pray, read Daniel 7:13-14, have breakfast, learn one new thing – Bromide [bro·mide] n. A commonplace remark or notion; a platitude. “Her speech contained the usual bromides about teamwork.” A tiresome or dull person; a bore. – and work on my 25 Smiles Campaign –raised $8 011.04 only $4 488.96 more to raise to reach my second goal of raising $12 500 for Smile Train before Jan 10 2017 (SO SO SO GRATEFUL to everyone who has supported this campaign so far ).
Yesterday after being rebuked for sharing a video of myself turning from side to side (apparently it makes people sad to see me struggle) I realized that my job in this life is not to make other people happy or comfortable but rather it is to live as authentically as I can (I refuse to be on social media and share only the newspaper articles, the blog posts and the pretty pictures because that’s part of my life not all of it and if I’m going to be on social media I’m going to be authentic and share both my struggles and my celebrations if only to make someone somewhere feel a little less alone in their struggles).
