Feelings fade commitment doesn’t – that’s what I’ve realized.
It’s 12 : 42 PM on day 2645 of my journey towards independence and I managed to pray, read John 1:9-10 and promote my 50 New Feet Campaign benefiting MiracleFeet –-raised $5 026 only $7 474 more to raise by June 17, 2018 to help 50 kids with clubfoot (thanks to everyone who has helped out so far).
Today being my parents 27th wedding anniversary I’ve been thinking a lot about the differences between the West and the East when it comes to marriage my uncle said it best when he said In the West people marry the one they love while in the East people love the one they marry it’s not a choice I think I would make because I’ve lived in the Western World all my life but there’s something to be said for marrying for something other than 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,
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).
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.
