Live in the moment but also have exciting plans for the future– that’s my message to the world.
It’s 12 : 37 PM on day 2519 of my journey towards independence and I managed to pray, read Psalm 103:12 , have breakfast and promote my 50 New Feet Campaign benefiting MiracleFeet – raised to $2 602 only $9 897 more to raise by June 17, 2018 to help 50 kids with clubfoot .
This morning I was reminded that though it’s important to live in the present it’s also important to have exciting plans for the future.
“Children are our most valuable natural resource.” – Herbert Hoover
It’s 11 : 04 AM on day 2439 of my journey towards independence and I managed to pray, have breakfast, read Acts 2:4 and learn a new word – Ephemeral adj. 1. Lasting for a markedly brief time: “The ephemeral nature of fashion trends.” 2. Living or lasting only for a day, as with certain plants or insects.
Recently there have been three wonderful new additions to my extended family (I’m a proud aunty to a niece and two nephews (so overjoyed about that)) which has got me thinking about the future of our world and the responsibility we have to the youngest amongst us it’s up to us to teach them that nothing they become will ever be more important than being good human beings.
We owe the present and future generation the best of ourselves – that’s my message to the world.
It’s 10: 05 AM on day 2297 of my journey towards independence and I managed to pray, read Hebrews 12:28-29 and work on my 25 Smiles Campaign –raised $9 461.04 only $3 038.96 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 feeling guilty about the state of our world I wrote a letter to those not yet born. Take a look:
My letter to those not yet born:
December 27, 2016
My name is Nisha Varghese as I write this I’m 25-years-young with more questions than answers every day I try so that your future is better than my present.
I hope in your present there’s less waste, less inequality and less hate. I hope being different is seen as a strength and not as a weakness. I hope your technology has not overtaken your humanity. I hope planet Earth is not completely destroyed.
If your present is far from what you wish it to be please act to create the world you desire to live in – try for me and those who will come after you. Always remember: There’s a superhero inside you just waiting to come out.
PS. Please forgive my generation for the ways in which we have failed you.
Embrace the present– that’s my message to myself and the world.
It’s 10 : 13 AM on day 2237 of my journey towards independence and I managed to have breakfast, pray, read Romans 8:15 and work on my 25 Smiles Campaign –raised $8 161.04 only $4 338.96 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 ).
This morning laying in bed staring at the ceiling I wondered what would become of future everything about my life is so up in the air sometimes that’s trilling and other times it’s scary as hell but however I feel I’m so grateful for this life and this day October 29, 2016 will never come again.
Have a little faith– that’s what I learned today 🙂
It’s 1 : 36 PM on day 1013 of my journey towards independence and I’ve managed to brush my teeth, feed myself a boiled egg and All Bran Flakes for breakfast, pray, read Deuteronomy 30, publish my Disability of the Day feature, tweet and Facebook about my campaign – no luck – and practice typing with both hands
This morning I awoke thinking of the future but instead of laying awake and fretting about it like I usually did I went back to sleep subconsciously deciding to do what I can and leave the rest up to God after all God has been taking care of me thus far and my life hasn’t turned out too bad. Do you have enough faith to do what you can and let do the rest?
