Day 2584: International Day of the Girl Child

“Courage, sacrifice, determination, commitment, toughness, heart, talent, guts. That’s what little girls are made of.” – Bethany Hamilton

It’s 11: 45  AM on day 2584 of my journey towards independence and I managed to pray,  read  Zechariah 7:9-10 and promote my 50 New Feet Campaign benefiting MiracleFeet – A HUGE thanks to Maya Papu who donated $250 which brings the total raised to  $4 287 only $8 213 more to raise by June 17, 2018 to help 50 kids with clubfoot.


Today is the International Day of the Girl Child and while admittedly there are challenges to being a girl in this day and age it’s also a period of time in which girls have more opportunities than they’ve ever had before and for those who don’t it is our duty as humanity to create and unlock those opportunities.

Day 2273: Mistakes – an opportunity to do better?

Mistakes are an opportunity to do better next time – that’s my message to the world.


It’s 11: 02 AM on day 2273 of my journey towards independence and I managed to pray    and work on my  25 Smiles Campaign    –raised $9 161.04 only  $3 338.96 more to raise to reach my second goal of raising $12 500 for Smile Train before Jan 10 2017 (SO SO SO GRATEFUL to everyone who has supported this campaign so far ).


Yesterday I was working on something and I didn’t save the document needless to say I was bummed to lose eleven pages of work but instead of dwelling on my mistake I choose to start again and if I do say so myself the second version of the document is way better than the first (mistakes teach us things that help us do better next time).

Day 1850: Life and the Opening and Closing of Doors

When one door closes others open – that’s what I keep realizing.


It’s  12 :  45 PM on day 1850 of my journey towards independence and I’ve managed to brush my teeth, pray,  read John 16, publish my Disability of the Day feature, have breakfast, learn one new thing –Spurious [spu·ri·ous] adj. Not genuine, authentic, or true; not from the claimed, pretended, or proper source; counterfeit. Not being what it purports to be; false or fake. “Spurious claims.”– and start reading Animal Farm by George Orwell (again[I stopped halfway a while back so I felt like I had to start all over again]).


Yesterday I realized I wasn’t going to be able to do something I really wanted to do needless to say I was majorly bummed but now I realize that not being able to do that thing leaves me free to do other things everything in life works out perfectly even if we don’t realize that in the moment.
