Day 2454: Every Sunrise Is An Invitation

Even the most mundane days become magical when you realize every sunrise is an invitation to brighten someone’s day – that’s what I’ve realized.

 

It’s 10 : 13 AM on day 2454 of my journey towards independence and I managed to pray, read John 12: 25   have breakfast,  and learn a new word – pestilential \ˌpe-stə-ˈlen(t)-shəl\ adjective: likely to spread and cause an epidemic disease.

 

This morning I was feeling just blah and directionless but that began to change when I thought to myself every sunrise is an invitation to brighten someone’s day so my mission today is to brighten someone’s day I don’t know how yet but I’m going to focus on what I have and make a plan.

Day 1610: “How little people can make a big difference” by Charlie Cooper

12 Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith and in purity.

– 1 Timothy 4:12

 

It’s 12 :  00 PM on day 1610 of my journey towards independence and I’ve managed to  brush my teeth, pray,    read Jeremiah 27, publish my Disability of the Day feature,  learn one new thing – History’s shortest war lasted 38 minutes. It was fought between Great Britain and Zanzibar –   promote my Educate Generations campaign – $1 820 raised so far with God’s help and yours the goal will be reached in no time I just know it – feed myself a peanut butter sandwich and a banana for breakfast and continue promoting the campaign – $1 820 raised so far but the day is still young 🙂

 

Last night I watched “How little people can make a big difference” which is a Ted Talk by 9-year-old Charlie Cooper about how he ended bullying in his school by creating a buddy bench I was amazed how something so simple could make such a huge difference. Watch “How little people can make a big difference” below:

Day 1240: You can make a difference but you can’t change the world?

The world is changed when you make a difference – that’s what I believe.

 

It’s 12  : 30 PM on day 1240 of my journey towards independence and I’ve managed to  pray,  brush my teeth, read Ezra 7, feed myself egg with bread for breakfast, publish my Disability of the Day feature, promote my Eradicate AIDS campaign – nobody donated so far today but Paul and Juliet Merrell  over at  From A Parrot’s Nest donated $20 yesterday (thank you Paul and Juliet) which brings my total raised to $253.85 I’m 25% to my goal and it hasn’t even been a month since the campaign started I have some AWESOME family and friends 🙂 – practice sitting up straight to strengthen my core muscles and stretch my hamstrings.

 

This morning I was thinking about something somebody said to me you can make a difference but you can’t change the world I don’t know about that I believe the world is changed when you make a difference because if you didn’t do what you did to make a difference then it wouldn’t get done. Do you believe that the world is changed when you make a difference?
