Day 2528: Overriding immature Feelings

At times when you don’t see the fruits of your labour override your immature feelings and keep working – that’s my message to the world.

 

It’s 12 : 51  PM on day 2528 of my journey towards independence and I managed to pray, read James 1:2-4,  have breakfast and promote my 50 New Feet Campaign benefiting MiracleFeet – raised to $2 875 only $9 625 more to raise  by June 17, 2018 to help 50 kids with clubfoot.

 

Today I realized that the decision we make to override our immature feelings and keep working when we don’t see results is perhaps the most important decision we will ever make while we are striving to achieving our goals,

 

Day 2515: Subordinate Feelings to Permanent Core Values

Know your core values so that you can subordinate your temporary feelings to your permanent core values – that’s my message to the world.

 

It’s 10 : 50 AM on day 2515 of my journey towards independence and I managed to pray,  have breakfast, read Genesis 4:7  and promote my 50 New Feet Campaign benefiting MiracleFeet – Yesterday  Mervyn, one of my favorite people from church, donated $37.87 (thanks so much Mervyn it was so lovely to see you again  🙂 ) which brings the total raised to $2 602  only $9 897 more to raise  by June 17, 2018 to help 50 kids with clubfoot.

 

Recently I was reminded that it’s important to know your core values so that you can subordinate your temporary feelings to your permanent core values (if someone is cruel to you and you know that one of your core values is kindness you won’t retaliate because you decided way before that hurtful moment what kind of person you want to be).

Day 2101: Fight not thy Feelings

Don’t fight your feelings – that’s  my message to myself and the world.

 

It’s 11 : 36  AM on day 2101 of my journey towards independence and I managed to pray, read Malachi 3:10, learn one new thing – The origins of ice cream can be traced back to at least the 4th century B.C. Early references include the Roman emperor Nero (A.D. 37-68) who ordered ice to be brought from the mountains and combined with fruit toppings, and King Tang (A.D. 618-97) of Shang, China who had a method of creating ice and milk concoctions. – listen to 97.2  – yes Catherine Constantinides was on again (yes, twice in 2 days she has been chosen for the Mandela-Washington Fellowship it’s a HUGE DEAL I’m SO PROUD of her  🙂  )  –  and work on my  25 Smiles Campaign    – raised $5 910 only $340 more to raise before Jan 10 2017 (SO SO SO GRATEFUL to everyone who has supported this campaign so far 🙂 ).

 

This morning I realized yet again that fighting one’s feelings is futile one would be better served acknowledging and accepting said feelings.
