Day 2615: Believing the Best About Humanity

Believe the best in humanity even when most of the evidence points to the contrary – that’s my message to the world.

 

It’s 12 : 32 PM on day 2615 of my journey towards independence and I managed to pray,  read  1 Chronicles 16:35 and promote my 50 New Feet Campaign benefiting MiracleFeet -raised $4 556 only $7 944  more to raise by June 17, 2018 to help 50 kids with clubfoot (thanks to everyone who has helped out so far).

 

Today I’m choosing to believe the best in humanity even though most of the evidence points to the contrary I truly do think whatever we believe about the world will be reflected back to us so even when it’s hard I will choose to believe the best about humanity till kingdom come

 

 

Day 2614: Why I Don’t Need Respite From My Beautiful Life

The road to hell is paved with good intentions and very little engagement with stakeholders – that’s what I have realized.

 

It’s 1 : 18  PM on day 2614 of my journey towards independence and I managed to pray,  read Titus 2:11, and promote my 50 New Feet Campaign benefiting MiracleFeet – A HUGE thanks to  Stan Faryna, author of Francesco Augustine Bernadone   who donated $50 and Debbie Gleason donated $18 yesterday  which brings the total raised to  $4 556 only $7 944 more to raise by June 17, 2018 to help 50 kids with clubfoot.

 

This morning I came across a well-meaning organization distributing wheelchairs worldwide (which is awesome truly it is) and offering “Family Retreats to provide respite for those with disabilities and their families” having a disability is not something a weekend away can fix it’s my life I don’t need a break from it i just need support as I try to live my life to its fullest potential (sometimes I think these NPOs organizations working in the disability sector don’t even bother to engage with the people they are trying to help because if they did they would understand that people with disabilities need access to education and skills training not “respite” because while a family retreat may be fun people need education and skills to make a meaningful contribution to the world).

Day 2612: Dagger through the Heart a Billion Times

However you feel it’s ok – that’s the lesson that keeps coming back to me.

 

It’s 10 : 48 AM on day 2612 of my journey towards independence and I managed to pray,  read 2 Thessalonians 3:16 and promote my 50 New Feet Campaign benefiting MiracleFeet -raised $4 488 only $8 012 more to raise by June 17, 2018 to help 50 kids with clubfoot (thanks to everyone who has helped out so far).

 

This morning as I looked at a picture of a family with a new born baby be happy for them I commanded myself and I genuinely was but even as I type this my right hand is on what will probably never be my womb I feel so empty and it hurts so bad few people in this life will ever know what it’s like to be stared in the face every day by that which you may never have it’s a dagger through the heart being twisted a billion times, taken out and being put back in only you have a smile on your face because you are genuinely happy for the new family and wish them nothing but the very best in life.

Day 2611: Take Chances

The more chances you take the luckier you will get – that’s what I know.

 

It’s 1 : 33   PM on day 2611 of my journey towards independence and I managed to pray,  read 1 Peter 5:6-8 and promote my 50 New Feet Campaign benefiting MiracleFeet -raised $4 488 only $8 012 more to raise by June 17, 2018 to help 50 kids with clubfoot (thanks to everyone who has helped out so far).

 

Today I did something the results of which reminded me that the more chances I take the luckier I will get (sometimes you’ve got to put yourself out there and be willing to flop so that you can maybe fly).

Day 2610: Beauty and Pain

Do the little things that make you happy it really makes a big difference– that’s my message to the world.

 

It’s 12 : 30  PM on day 2610 of my journey towards independence and I managed to pray,  read  Psalm 85:8, and promote my 50 New Feet Campaign benefiting MiracleFeet – A HUGE thanks to the Jindalee Foundation who donated $100 yesterday which brings the total raised to  $4 488 only $8 012 more to raise by June 17, 2018 to help 50 kids with clubfoot.

 

 

Today in the middle of doing everything I just stopped to stare at our Jacaranda tree full of purple flowers and in that moment I was reminded that though there is immense pain in this world there is also immense beauty. If you look around and can’t find the beauty in life then be the beauty in life by showing up and being kinder than necessary.

 

Day 2609: Speak With Your Actions

Speak with your actions – that’s my message to the world

 

It’s 1 : 04   PM on day 2609 of my journey towards independence and I managed to pray,  read John 16:33 and promote my 50 New Feet Campaign benefiting MiracleFeet -raised $4 388 only $8 112 more to raise by June 17, 2018 to help 50 kids with clubfoot (thanks to everyone who has helped out so far).

 

Recently things happened that reminded me that words not followed by actions are awfully hollow which is not to say I don’t appreciate the kind words I just would appreciate the words even more if they were followed by solid actions. Speak to me with your actions so that I may hear you with my heart.

 

Day 2608: Why I No Longer Lie

If you’re proud of who you are in the present you won’t feel the need to lie about what you did or didn’t do in the past – that’s what I know.

 

It’s 1 : 18   PM on day 2608 of my journey towards independence and I managed to pray,  read Romans 15:13 and promote my 50 New Feet Campaign benefiting MiracleFeet -raised $4 388 only $8 112 more to raise by June 17, 2018 to help 50 kids with clubfoot (thanks to everyone who has helped out so far).

 

Recently I was asked a question in an interview and my usual answer to that question was an automatic lie but this time I intentionally chose to tell the truth because I  was genuinely proud of who I was and knew that everything I chose to do and not do made me the person I am today

 

Day 2601: Let go of Little Things

Don’t hold on to the little things that don’t matter instead learn, forgive and let go of it– that’s my message to the world.

 

It’s 10:  17 AM on day 2601 of my journey towards independence and I managed to pray,  read Matthew 10:28 and promote my 50 New Feet Campaign benefiting MiracleFeet -raised $4 388 only $8 112 more to raise by June 17, 2018 to help 50 kids with clubfoot (thanks to everyone who has helped out so far)

 

Yesterday something happened that had the potential to make me really angry but instead of getting angry I chose to learn, forgive and let go of it (if you give certain situations more significance than actually have you’ll be miserable forevermore).

 

Day 2599: Doing My Best

Just decide you’re going to get up every day and do your best– that’s my message to the world.

 

It’s 12:  19 PM on day 2599 of my journey towards independence and I managed to pray,  read 1 Peter 2:9  and promote my 50 New Feet Campaign benefiting MiracleFeet -raised $4 388 only $8 112 more to raise by June 17, 2018 to help 50 kids with clubfoot (thanks to everyone who has helped out so far)

 

Today I noticed that I’m hyper-focused on the results of my actions which, as you can imagine, can be deeply disheartening at times so from this day forward I’ve decided to just do my best and let the chips fall where they may.

Day 2598: Expectation and Disappointment

Expectation is the root of all disappointment – that’s what I know.

 

It’s 12: 03   PM on day 2598 of my journey towards independence and I managed to pray,  read  Galatians 5:24, and promote my 50 New Feet Campaign benefiting MiracleFeet – A HUGE thanks to Simon Magid donated $25  which brings the total raised to  $4 388 only $8 112 more to raise by June 17, 2018 to help 50 kids with clubfoot.

 

Today I was reminded that expectation is the root of all disappointment so I’ve just resolved not to have expectations of any situation or any person out of my control – it is better this way it saves me a lot of heartache.
