Humanity is more good than bad– that’s what I want the world to know
It’s 10 : 17 AM on day 2475 of my journey towards independence and I managed to pray, read James 1: 20, have breakfast and promote my 50 New Feet Campaign benefiting MiracleFeet – yesterday Sharon D Agostino (Founder of SayItForward) donated $500 and Simon Magid donated $25 (thanks Sharon and Simon) which brings the total raised to $1 335 only $11 165 more to raise in 358 days to help 50 kids with clubfoot (won’t be easy but again i say very doable with God in me) .
Today I realized that being in the philanthropy space gives me a front row set to the best of humanity admittedly all of us are a bit of a mess of contradictions but I’m telling on this planet at this time walks some of the kindest, gentlest and most generous people ever I’ve been privileged enough to see it, feel it and often be on the receiving end of it.
Life is an experience we’ve got to take the good with the bad– that’s my message to the world.
It’s 9 : 20 AM on day 2193 of my journey towards independence and I managed to have breakfast, pray, read 1 John 5:13-14 and work on my 25 Smiles Campaign – yesterday Debbie donated $25 (thanks SO MUCH Debbie) which brings the total raised to $7 675 only $4 825 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 ).
Today I was thinking about life and how to say we have truly lived we must take the good with the bad I know some people want happiness without sadness, joy without sorrow, laughter without tears but that’s not life – the beautiful of life is that nothing is constant and as life changes so do we.
You can’t have the good without the bad – that’s what I realized today.
It’s 1 : 15 PM on day 1204 of my journey towards independence and I’ve managed to brush my teeth, feed myself egg curry with bread for breakfast, read 2 Chronicles 7, pray, publish my Disability of the Day feature and hang out with my family.
This morning I woke up feeling the distinct lack of independence that comes with having Cerebral Palsy in that moment I realized I couldn’t have all the good things that come with having Cerebral Palsy without having to deal with the bad. Do you want the good without the bad?
Nothing is as black and white as we make it out to be–that’s what I realized today.
It’s 12 : 35 PM on day 1138 of my journey towards independence and I’ve managed to pray, brush my teeth, read 1 Kings 18, publish my Disability of the Day feature, feed myself boiled egg and Bran Flakes for breakfast, practice sitting up straight to strengthen my core muscles, stretch my hamstrings and take off my dirty t-shirt and put on a clean to and hoodie.
Today I realized nothing is as black and white as we make it out to be none of us are all good or all bad it’s just that the so-called good people express their goodness more than the so-called bad people do I hope I always express my good rather than my evil. Are you too quick to label situations and people as good or bad?
