Day 2700: The Thing I Will Never Apologize For

Never apologize for expressing love, kindness and joy – that’s my message to the world.

 

It’s 1 : 03 PM on day 2700 of my journey towards independence and I managed to go drop my sister at airport – she’s back at university after summer break –  pray, read Psalm 34:14 and promote my 50 New Feet Campaign benefiting MiracleFeet –   A HUGE thanks to Piyuse uncle and family who donated $100   which brings the total raised to  $7 401 only $5 099 more to raise by June 17, 2018 to help 50 kids with clubfoot.

 

Today I was asked by someone I love why I’m overly expressive of my feelings towards people on social media (I’m like that in real-life as well I guess it’s more noticeable on social media because I use multimedia to express my feelings) the person who asked me this is rather stoic so it must make  him  uncomfortable that I’m not at all shy about my feelings anyway in answer to his question I said I was trying to be kind I will never apologize for trying to be kind the world needs more of it and people deserve to know they are loved by me.

Today I was reminded that it’s worth the risk of being a nuisance to be kind (in the past even when I was calling people to be kind and loving I always worried that I was being a nuisance but now I have thrown cautious to the wind life is too short to refrain from kindness because I’m afraid of interrupting something). Risk everything be kinder than necessary it is very necessary.

Day 2603: Lessons in Kindness Taught To Me by My Superhero Catherine Constantinides

It doesn’t cost much at all to be kind– that’s what my Superhero Catherine Constantinides continues to teach me.

Yesterday my Superhero Catherine Constantinides called me from the airport on her way to the USA to speak at the Obama Foundation‘s Obama Summit just to say I carry you in my heart whatever I go I was just blown away and so touched I’m usually not the mushy sort but anyone would have to be made of stone not to be moved by that (it’s not just what she said and did that touched me so deeply but the context in which it was done I mean there she was ready to board a plane to go and be amongst the best minds and hearts in the world and she chose to call me to say I carry you in my heart whatever I go…simply extraordinary actually). Thank you Superhero for showing me what kindness looks like and sounds like and for teaching me that it is always necessary to be kinder than necessary (I love you more than Peanut Butter and French Toast).

Recently I called someone to wish her a happy birthday and I think it made her day which made my day the whole day after that I was rolling on cloud nine I remember thinking with a smile in my heart I was kind today (we as humans are wired to be kind no amount of money or possessions in the world can give you the feeling you get when you make someone else feel like they matter).

Yesterday I came across a quote by Britt Michaelian that read kindness is just love with work boots on I loved that she’s absolutely right kindness is just love with work boots on….. kindness is love in action.
