Day 2527: Warning: Exploiters Will Not Be Tolerated

Recognize when you’re being manipulated and call people on their bluff – that’s my message to myself.

 

It’s 12 : 23  PM on day 2527 of my journey towards independence and I managed to pray, read Psalm 147: 3,  have breakfast and promote my 50 New Feet Campaign benefiting MiracleFeet – raised to $2 875 only $9 625 more to raise  by June 17, 2018 to help 50 kids with clubfoot.

 

Today I felt like I was in a situation where somebody was trying to manipulate me but unlike before I didn’t beg or plead with her instead I called her bluff and that stopped her in her tracks (people know that I’m in need of their physical help and some of them use it to their advantage I will be kind to them nonetheless but gone are the days where my physical needs will be exploited – I deserve the best in life because I try my best to be good and do good I won’t accept anything but the best treatment from all people in my life).

Day 2525: Kindness is…

“Kindness is just love with work boots on.” – Britt Michaelian

 

It’s 2: 41  PM on day 2525 of my journey towards independence and I managed to pray, read Isaiah 33:2, go to church – this morning we attended a Syriac Orthodox Service – two and half hours long (without consuming any food so that we could be as pure as possible before communion) it was a nice service (we are Syriac Orthodox we just go to Methodist Church sometimes because Father S can only come to our town every 3 months) – and have lunch

 

Yesterday I came across a quote by Britt Michaelian that read kindness is just love with work boots on I loved that she’s absolutely right kindness is just love with work boots on….. kindness is love in action.

Day 2524: Just Love

The true meaning of love is not to possess – that’s what I realizing

 

It’s 1 : 14 PM on day 2524 of my journey towards independence and I managed to pray, read Habakkuk 3:17-18,  have breakfast and promote my 50 New Feet Campaign benefiting MiracleFeet – raised to $2 875 only $9 625 more to raise  by June 17, 2018 to help 50 kids with clubfoot.

 

Today I was reminded that to love truly is to love without conditions or expectations – people, like you, are flawed and prone to mistakes so the best way to love them is to love them as they are without conditions or expectations and if you can’t then choose to let them go because really life is too short to hold anyone a prisoner of your conditions or expectations.

Day 2522: Do Unto Others

If you wouldn’t want it done to you don’t do it to someone else  no matter how good your reasons – that’s my message to the world.

 

It’s 11 : 31 AM on day 2522 of my journey towards independence and I managed to pray, read Lamentations 3:31-32,  have breakfast and promote my 50 New Feet Campaign benefiting MiracleFeet – raised to $2 875 only $9 625 more to raise  by June 17, 2018 to help 50 kids with clubfoot .

 

Yesterday I realized that if I wouldn’t want it done to me then I shouldn’t do it to anyone else no matter how good my reasons (sometimes I rush to do things with the best of intentions and I find that I’ve crossed boundaries that I shouldn’t have crossed).

Day 2504: God is Everywhere

God is in every moment and in every human you just need to pay close attention– that’s my message to the world.

 

It’s 12 : 07 PM on day 2504 of my journey towards independence and I managed to pray, read Daniel 6:26-27,   have breakfast, and promote my 50 New Feet Campaign benefiting MiracleFeet – raised to $2 230 only $10 270 more to raise  by June 17, 2018 to help 50 kids with clubfoot .

 

This morning I saw God in someone I love very much which reminded me that God is in every moment and in every human you just need to pay close attention.

Day 2489: Your Power Lies Within

“If you’re nothing without the suit you shouldn’t have it.” – Tony Stark, Spiderman: Homecoming

 

It’s 11 : 20 AM on day 2489 of my journey towards independence and I managed to pray, read Isaiah 6:8,  have breakfast and promote my 50 New Feet Campaign benefiting MiracleFeet – raised to $1 750 only $10 750 more to raise  by June 17, 2018 to help 50 kids with clubfoot .

 

 

Yesterday I watched Spiderman: Homecoming and although I thought the movie was childish Tony Stark said something to Peter Parker that changed my life If you’re nothing without the suit you shouldn’t have it I realize it’s not my wheelchair that makes me special but rather how I am choosing to use it, who I am and who I am becoming while sitting on it.

 

 

Day 2487: Be Helpful But Don’t Be Used

Always be helpful but be careful not to be used– that’s my message to the world.

 

It’s 12 : 05 PM on day 2487 of my journey towards independence and I managed to pray, read Romans 12: 9,  have breakfast and promote my 50 New Feet Campaign benefiting MiracleFeet – raised to $1 600 only $10 900 more to raise  by June 17, 2018 to help 50 kids with clubfoot .

 

This morning I realized my helpful nature makes it possible for people to use me -some people find out what I do (which they usually do from my very proud father even though I’ve asked him to please not tell anyone ) and it’s like they start seeing Dollar signs and a short while later you best believe some of them will show up at the door with an elaborate charity idea that they want me to get funding for – I’ve learned to politely say no and although I often feel bad about it I do so because I know  that 50% of people get into the non-profit sector either to boost their egos or worse to make a profit I refuse to be a party to that.

 

Day 2482: Be Mushy Sometimes

It’s okay to be mushy sometimes – that’s what I’m realizing.

 

It’s 2 : 28 PM on day 2482 of my journey towards independence and I managed to pray, read Isaiah 61:1, go visit people, have breakfast and promote my 50 New Feet Campaign benefiting MiracleFeet – raised to $1 400 only $11 100 more to raise  by June 17, 2018 to help 50 kids with clubfoot .

 

Recently I’ve realized it’s okay to be mushy sometimes I’m usually very measured in my expression of emotion but I’m beginning to understand that sometimes it’s okay to be a big bowl of mush because people need to know that I love and care about them.

Day 2472: Be the Human Ladder

“The best way to happiness is to invest in the happiness of others.” – Andy Mashaile

 

It’s 12 : 29  PM on day 2472 of my journey towards independence and I managed to pray, read 1 Corinthians 16: 13 have breakfast, learn a new word – Vexatious adj. 1. Full of annoyance or distress; harassed. 2. Causing or creating vexation; annoying. “Her ex-husband put her in a vexatious situation.” and promote my 50 New Feet Campaign benefiting MiracleFeet – raised $410 only $12 090 more to raise in 361 days to help 50 kids with clubfoot (it won’t be easy but we can do this i know it).

 

This morning I realized that although it’s great to have personal success it’s even greater to create and unlock opportunities for others to succeed I’m so happy to be the human ladder on which people climb to reach their dreams.

Day 2458: Love Covers Over a Multitude of Sins

Love covers over a multitude of sins – that’s what I’ve realized

 

It’s 11 : 22 AM on day 2458 of my journey towards independence and I managed to pray, have breakfast,  read Proverbs 10: 17 and learn a new word – Definitions for notabilia
matters, events, or items worthy of note.

 

Recently I realized that love, whether it flows from me or flows towards you, covers over a multitude of sins although I’m still trying to figure out if my intense love for some people is making me a walkover.
