Day 2421: Good Days, Bad Days and Attitude

The only difference between a good day and a bad day is your attitude – that’s my message to the world.


It’s 12 : 13 PM on day 2421 of my journey towards independence and I managed to pray, read Exodus 23: 25 have breakfast,   and learn a new word – Anachronism
Anachronism [a·nach·ro·nism] n. One that is out of its proper, chronological, or historical order, especially a person or practice that belongs to an earlier time. “A sword is an anachronism in modern warfare.”


Today something small happened that caused me quite a bit of physical pain and I just decided that whether the pain subsided or not I would have a good attitude the whole day because the only difference between a bad day and a good day is my attitude (from my adventuring I learned to push through my fears and in much the same way I push through my pain).

Day 1753: Great things happening

Even on your worst day great things can happen – that’s what I realized today.


It’s 2 : 07  PM on day 1753  of my journey towards independence and I’ve managed to brush my teeth,  pray, read Zachariah 3,    publish my Disability of the Day feature, learn one new thing – Definitions for contradistinction: distinction by opposition or contrast: plants and animals in contradistinction to humans. –  feed myself  All Bran Flakes with bananas for breakfast, go to the optometrist  and promote my Educate Generations campaign – special thanks to my  real-life friend, Pamela Eapen, for writing a brilliant article  about me and my current campaign in an article titled “My Wheelchair Doesn’t Define Me”: The Amazing Girl Who’s Raised Thousands For Charity .


Today I was having a really horrible day until something  great happened just goes to show there’s always hope … even on your worst day great things can happen.

Day 1735: Smiling through every day

In life all of us will have good days, bad days and days that are just okay the trick is to smile through every day – that’s what I keep  realizing


It’s 12 : 09  PM on day 1735 of my journey towards independence and I’ve managed to brush my teeth, pray,  read Micah 3, publish my Disability of the Day feature, publish my Kid of the Week feature,   feed myself bran  flakes with banana for breakfast, learn one new thing –Paleontologists and mother-daughter team Meave and Louise Leakey have made significant contributions to our understanding of human origins, continuing the legacy begun in 1931 by Louis S. B. Leakey with his discoveries of ancient fossils in Tanzania’s Olduvai Gorge. –  and promote my Educate Generations campaign– Ronald Rip and Beverly Bernhardt​ donated $40 and $60 respectively yesterday ​ (thanks Bev and Ronald) which brings my total raised to $3 145 🙂


Today I woke up feeling as though I had been run over by a truck thankfully I feel slightly better and have decided to smile through the day headache, fatigue and all.

Day 988: The show must go on

The show must go on – that’s what I keep learning 🙂

It’s  3  : 22 PM on day 988 of my journey towards independence and I’ve managed to pray, brush my teeth, read Deuteronomy 5,  publish my Disability of the Day feature, stretch my hamstrings, take off my hoodie and t–shirt and put a clean t-shirt on with our housekeeper’s help – even with help it took me 1 1/2 hours to do if I never say the words can you help me again it will be too soon people often say to me everybody needs help sometimes which irritates me because I need more help in a day than most people need in a lifetime – practice sitting up straight to strengthen my core muscles,  feed myself All Bran Flakes for breakfast, tweet and Facebook about my campaign – no luck today – and  practice typing with both hands.

Today has not been the best of days for me my left hip (or at least what feels like my left hip) has been aching but you have to wake up every day, put a smile on your dial and try to help as many people as possible because there are lots of people who would have given an arm and a leg to be alive today to make a difference.  Do you get up, put a smile on your dial and try to help as a many people as possible regardless of how you’re feeling?
