Day 2688: Life Lesson in a Milkshake Tasting

May you have the courage to try different milkshakes– that’s hope for the world.

 

It’s 12 : 16 PM on day 2688 of my journey towards independence and I managed to pray, read Philippians 4:13   and promote my 50 New Feet Campaign benefiting MiracleFeet – raised  $6 876 only $5 624 more to raise by June 17, 2018 to help 50 kids with clubfoot (thanks so much to everyone who has helped out so far).

 

Yesterday I tried Rum & Raisin Milkshake in keeping with the promise I made to myself that I would try things that I  often don’t  and having  previously tried Peppermint Milkshake,  Oreo Milkshake, Mocha Milkshake, Coffee Milkshake and Strawberry Milkshake I have come to the conclusion that I have outgrown milkshakes (my poor father has spent so much money on milkshakes that I didn’t even finish needless to say he was not impressed ) sometimes you have to try everything to realize that the things on the list re not what you want and that maybe you re destined to forge your own path (yes, I realized all that from tasting milkshakes)

Day 2684: How to Never Truly Fail

All I can do is my best I can’t control what other people do or don’t do– that’s what I keep being reminded of.

 

It’s 11 : 39 AM on day 2684 of my journey towards independence and I managed to pray, read  Habakkuk 3:19 and promote my 50 New Feet Campaign benefiting MiracleFeet – raised  $6 826 only $5 674 more to raise by June 17, 2018 to help 50 kids with clubfoot.

 

Today I was reminded that all I can do is my best I can’t control what other people do or don’t do (I find comfort in knowing I do my best every day and because of that I will never truly fail no matter what the end results of my actions are).

Day 2681: Inspiration’s Condition

Inspiration definitely comes to you on condition that you’re working while you’re waiting for it to arrive – that’s my message to the world.

 

It’s 12 : 47 PM on day 2681 of my journey towards independence and I managed to pray, read  Isaiah 41:10 and promote my 50 New Feet Campaign benefiting MiracleFeet – raised  $6 826 only $5 674 more to raise by June 17, 2018 to help 50 kids with clubfoot.

 

Today I was reminded that inspiration definitely comes to you on condition that you’re working while you’re waiting for it to arrive (some people keep whining about how uninspired they are while they do nothing – well duh inspiration comes to those who work).

Day 2680: The Effects of Time

Time stands still for nobody– that’s what I want the world to know.

 

It’s 12 : 42 PM on day 2680 of my journey towards independence and I managed to pray, read  Jeremiah 29:11 and promote my 50 New Feet Campaign benefiting MiracleFeet – raised  $6 826 only $5 674 more to raise by June 17, 2018 to help 50 kids with clubfoot.

 

Yesterday I realized with a tinge of sadness that my parents are growing old at the exact time it feels like my life is just starting which makes things complicated for me because I need a lot of physical help to survive and thrive (I want to travel, meet new people and continue making a difference I don’t know how that’s going to work in this situation it’s nobody’s fault it just is what it is).

Day 2679: Act In Accordance With Your Prayers

May our actions match our prayers– that’s my wish for the world.

 

It’s 12 : 40 PM on day 2679 of my journey towards independence and I managed to pray, read  Isaiah 43:19, go to church, promote my 50 New Feet Campaign benefiting MiracleFeet – raised  $6 826 only $5 674 more to raise by June 17, 2018 to help 50 kids with clubfoot.

 

Today I was reminded that it doesn’t help for me to pray to God to help me do the right thing even when it’s hard if I don’t choose to do the right thing when it’s hard.

Day 2678: Life Is

Life is an exercise in collaboration not competition– that’s my message to the world.

It’s 4 : 02 PM on day 2678 of my journey towards independence and I managed to pray, read  Isaiah 43:19, promote my 50 New Feet Campaign benefiting MiracleFeet – raised  $6 816 only $5 684 more to raise by June 17, 2018 to help 50 kids with clubfoot – and go to the mall

 

Today I was writing a letter to a very special baby and in that letter I said life is an exercise in collaboration not competition until I read back what I wrote I didn’t really know what my life philosophy was.

Day 2677: Carry On

When the world says NO be determined every single day and choose to carry on. Be a very kind bulldog– that’s my message to the world.

 

It’s 1 : 24 PM on day 2677 of my journey towards independence and I managed to pray, read Psalm 40:3,  have breakfast and promote my 50 New Feet Campaign benefiting MiracleFeet –   A HUGE thanks to  who donated Air To Air Africa Ballooning  who donated $10   which brings the total raised to  $6 826 only $5 674 more to raise by June 17, 2018 to help 50 kids with clubfoot.

 

Today I realized that if you have the courage and persistence to carry on when the world says no things tend to work out (we often give up to easily in life but if we have the courage to ask when we think people say no and carry on if they do success will be ours)

Day 2676: I Will Never Be Alone

Nobody can leave you because nobody is an extension of you – that’s what I keep being reminded of.

 

It’s 1 : 18 PM on day 2676 of my journey towards independence and I managed to pray, read  Ephesians 4:22-24 and promote my 50 New Feet Campaign benefiting MiracleFeet – raised  $6 816 only $5 684 more to raise by June 17, 2018 to help 50 kids with clubfoot .

 

Today I was reminded that nobody can leave me because nobody is an extension of me I will never be alone in this life because I will always have God and I will always have me.

Day 2675: Everything and Everybody I Love 2018

Focus on love– that’s Jodene Shaer’s message to the world.

It’s 1 : 34 PM on day 2675 of my journey towards independence and I managed to pray, read  Isaiah 42:9 and promote my 50 New Feet Campaign benefiting MiracleFeet – raised  $6 816 only $5 684 more to raise by June 17, 2018 to help 50 kids with clubfoot .

 

Yesterday in a vlog entitled “I Don’t Know Much” Jodene Shaer suggested that instead of making New Year’s Resolutions and To-Do Lists we should make a list of what we love and although I’ll continue to keep my 2018 Goals list I have also decided to list of things I love as per Jodene’s suggestion. Take a look:

Everything and Everybody I Love 2018

  1. I love God
  2. I love myself
  3. I love every member of my family
  4. I love my friends
  5. I love Gerda

  7. I love my favourite women in green glasses Ella Bella (she’s so herself all the time it makes my heart smile)
  8. I love giving, serving and being kind – I LOVE making a difference and being the difference (nobody has truly lived until they’ve seen wonderment in a child’s eyes I would give every last cent I had and even the shirt off my back to see that look again)
  9. I love MiracleFeet and the work they do (with $250 and no surgery they change the trajectory of a clubfoot-affected child’s life it’s really extraordinary)
  10. I love being outside and looking trees, flowers, birds and the clouds
  11. I love writing

Day 2672: Faith is an armour not a stick

Faith is an armour not a stick – that’s my message to the world

 

It’s 1 : 37 PM on day 2672 of my journey towards independence and I managed to pray, read Ezekiel 11:19 and promote my 50 New Feet Campaign benefiting MiracleFeet – raised  $6 816 only $5 684 more to raise by June 17, 2018 to help 50 kids with clubfoot .

 

This morning I realized religion should be used as an armour not a stick – a while ago I told someone that I didn’t go to Midnight Mass on Christmas Eve and it was like I committed murder or something I had never before felt so judged and I think that’s why some people are leaving church and religion these days because when others don’t practice our faith the way we do we judge them to no end I go to church less frequently than I used to but that doesn’t mean I am any less Christian than I was or that I love God any less I just express my faith through my actions and in the way I exist in this world
