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.

Day 2699: Pushing Past Apathy

You have to push past apathy to create any sort of change – that’s what I’ve realized.

 

It’s 12 : 47 PM on day 2699 of my journey towards independence and I managed to pray, read Proverbs 3:5-6 ,  have breakfast and promote my 50 New Feet Campaign benefiting MiracleFeet –   A HUGE thanks to Rosly Renil who donated $100   which brings the total raised to  $7 301 only $5 199 more to raise by June 17, 2018 to help 50 kids with clubfoot.

 

Today I realized that you have to push past apathy to create any sort of change (all this time I was focus on people who show absolutely no interest in my interests meanwhile I should have been focusing on friends of friends who share my interests).

Day 2696: Inside My Head Looking Outward

If people could see inside my head they would be so surprised – that’s what I’ve realized.

 

It’s 12 : 27 PM on day 2696 of my journey towards independence and I managed to pray, read Romans 8:31   and promote my 50 New Feet Campaign benefiting MiracleFeet – raised  $6 926 only $5 574 more to raise by June 17, 2018 to help 50 kids with clubfoot (thanks so much to everyone who has helped out so far).

 

This morning my sister walked into the dining room and asked why are you looking so glum? she naturally assumed I was sad about my possible Osteoporosis diagnoses meanwhile I was staring at my laptop screen frustrated that despite my best efforts I wasn’t moving more people to care about kids with clubfoot (my problems have never been the centre of my life that’s how I get through them).

Day 2694: Full-Circle

Life always comes full-circle– that’s what I’ve realized.

 

It’s 12 : 12 PM on day 2694 of my journey towards independence and I managed to pray, read Zechariah 4:6   and promote my 50 New Feet Campaign benefiting MiracleFeet – raised  $6 926 only $5 574 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 met a lovely young woman who looked at me with so much hope and awe it reminded me of the way I look at my Superhero Catherine Constantinides it was such and humbling and beautiful experience that made me realize that life always comes full-circle.

Day 2693: Making Promises and Keeping Them

Make only a few promises but keep all of them– that’s my message to the world.

 

It’s 4 : 31 PM on day 2693 of my journey towards independence and I managed to pray, read  Philippians 3:10-11, go shopping with my sister – i cannot believe we spent R3000 on clothes (almost enough for clubfoot treatment for one child) but i’m not going to feel guilty about my privilege I do my best to help every life that I can –   and promote my 50 New Feet Campaign benefiting MiracleFeet – raised  $6 926 only $5 574 more to raise by June 17, 2018 to help 50 kids with clubfoot (thanks so much to everyone who has helped out so far).

 

Today I wanted so badly to make a promise I knew I couldn’t keep but I refrained and decided that from that moment I decided in life I would make  only a few promises and keep all of them.

Day 2692: Embracing Imbalance

There is no such thing as  balance in life– that’s what I’ve realized.

 

It’s 12 : 12 PM on day 2692 of my journey towards independence and I managed to pray, read Joshua 10:25  and promote my 50 New Feet Campaign benefiting MiracleFeet – raised  $6 926 only $5 574 more to raise by June 17, 2018 to help 50 kids with clubfoot (thanks so much to everyone who has helped out so far).

 

Today as I worked and felt so guilty for not spending time watching Gossip Girl with my sister who’s only home for a few more day I realized there’s no such thing as balance in life I’ve just decided to be 100% present in whatever I’m doing.

Day 2690: Children and Me

They are different ways of getting everything I want – that’s what I’ve realized

 

It’s 12 : 11 PM on day 2690 of my journey towards independence and I managed to pray, read Ephesians 3:16   and promote my 50 New Feet Campaign benefiting MiracleFeet – raised  $6 926 only $5 574 more to raise by June 17, 2018 to help 50 kids with clubfoot (thanks so much to everyone who has helped out so far).

 

This morning as I looked at a picture of my niece (cousin’s daughter) and I, I  realized that I could still love children and be a part of children’s lives without ever having children or adopting them (I don’t know if that will ever be enough for me but it could be).

Day 2689: I’m Approved and Accepted

My aliveness is a giant seal of approval and acceptance from the one who made me– that’s what I’ve realized.

 

It’s 12 : 25 PM on day 2689 of my journey towards independence and I managed to pray, read Isaiah 40:29 ,  have breakfast and promote my 50 New Feet Campaign benefiting MiracleFeet –   A HUGE thanks to  Anonymous who donated $50   which brings the total raised to  $6 926 only $5 574 more to raise by June 17, 2018 to help 50 kids with clubfoot.

 

Today I was feeling unimportant until I realized that my aliveness is a giant seal of approval and acceptance from the one who made me and the same is true for each of you

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).
