Expect everything not to go to plan and prepare to be surprised if everything does go to plan– that’s my message to the world.
It’s 12 : 27 PM on day 2638 of my journey towards independence and I managed to spend time with my family doing something special (i will not elaborate as to what it is because some things are just between God, me and my family I’m determined of that – thank you daddy and mommy for driving me there even though it meant you went to work a little late), pray, read Job 40:1-2 and promote my 50 New Feet Campaign benefiting MiracleFeet –-raised $4 976 only $7 524 more to raise by June 17, 2018 to help 50 kids with clubfoot (thanks to everyone who has helped out so far).
Today I was somewhere doing something and things did not work out exactly how I planned but I was okay because I had expected that some things may not work out according to plan
Be the person you want other people to be – that’s what I keep learning 🙂
It’s 1 : 34 PM on day 1037 of my journey towards independence and I’ve managed to pray, brush my teeth, try to clean myself in the bathroom, feed myself All Bran Flakes for breakfast, read Joshua 20, publish my Disability of the Day feature, practice sitting up straight to strengthen my core muscles, take off my dirty jacket and t-shirt and put on a clean t-shirt – I have a good mind to start my own fashion label called Accessible Fashions none of the clothes would have buttons or zips (it’s difficult for me to unbutton, button and zip up) and the sleeves would be wider it would save me a lot of time, effort and energy that’s for sure – stretch my hamstrings, get my hair washed – our housekeeper is a godsend she does stuff for me that I cannot yet do for myself although now that I think about it I’ve never actually tried to wash my hair by myself I’m sure I could if I tried I have full use of my left hand and partial use of my right hand all I would need to do is attach some sort of extension that would get the water from the sink’s tap to my head -and tweet and Facebook about my campaign – no one donated so far today still $390 more to raise.
Last night reading Being the Adult I Want my Children to Become – a blog post on Emma’s Hope Book about being the adult you want the children in your life to become – I realized I should set expectations for others that I myself can meet and understand that we are all trying our bests to be our bests I want the people in my life to be kind, compassionate, giving and forgiving am I all of those things all of the time absolutely not. Are you the person you want other people to be?
