Hear what is said with the intention with which it was said – that’s what I’m learning.
It’s 12 : 03 PM on day 2009 of my journey towards independence and I managed to pray, read 1 Peter 2, learn one new thing – A jazz musician named Teri Pall invented a version of the cordless phone in 1965 but could not market her invention, as its 2-mile (3.2 km) range caused its radio signals to interfere with aircraft communications. In 1968, she sold her rights to the cordless phone to a manufacturer who modified it for practical use.–have breakfast and work on my 25 Smiles Campaign – yesterday Catherine Cook who has donated to this campaign twice before donated $25 (thanks SO MUCH Catherine your ongoing support means the world to me I really don’t deserve you ) which brings the total raised to $3 337 only $2 913 more to raise by 10 Jan 2017 (SO SO SO GRATEFUL to everyone who has supported this campaign so far ).
A couple of months ago someone new entered my life and every day she teaches me to hear what is said with the intention with which it was said sometimes people say things and we feel like they are attacking us but if we take our egos out of it and think she’s just stating a fact she’s not attacking me as a person then suddenly the sting is taken out of all that is said.
Sometimes the good you try to do does you no good – that’s what I realized this morning.
It’s 12 : 32 PM on day 1619 of my journey towards independence and I’ve managed to stretch my hamstrings (because I have Cerebral Palsy and can’t walk my hamstrings have to be stretched to keep my tendons the right length it is a painful but necessary exercise which I’m supposed to do every day of my life), brush my teeth, pray, read Jeremiah 36, publish my Disability of the Day feature, learn one new thing –The space between your pointer finger and thumb is called the “purlicue.” – feed myself egg with bread for breakfast and promote my Educate Generations campaign – $1 900 raised so far I have to do something different I was thinking maybe I could make a video asking Taylor Swift to check out my page but I’m on the fence about it because I don’t want to be one of the millions of people who are trying to use her.
This morning I realized sometimes the good you try to do does you no good I say and do most things I say and do with the best intentions but some people act like I say what I say and do what I do with the intention of hurting others it hurts but it’s okay God knows my intentions and sees inside my heart in the end that’s what matters most.
Hear words with the intention in which they were said–that’s what I keep learning.
It’s 1 : 15 PM on day 1290 of my journey towards independence and I’ve managed to pray, brush my teeth, read Job 24, publish my Disability of the Day feature, feed myself boiled egg and All Bran Flakes for breakfast, practice sitting up straight to strengthen my core muscles, stretch my hamstrings and promote my Eradicate AIDS campaign – no donations so far today but Kate made a donation yesterday evening (THANK YOU God and THANK YOU Kate) which brings my total raised to $549.47.
Yesterday somebody came by with a birthday gift and just as she was about to leave she said I’m praying for you to which I think I said sincerely thank you I’m praying for you too in the past when people said I’m praying for you I would get really defensive and think do I look like I need extra prayers or something but now I realize the things people say to me come from a good place so I embrace it. Do you hear the intention behind people’s words?
