Day 2641: Raging Against the Dying of my Light

The difference between success and failure is persistence – that’s what I’ve been reminded of.

 

It’s 2 : 12  PM on day 2641 of my journey towards independence and I managed to  pray,  read Matthew 25:40, and promote my 50 New Feet Campaign benefiting MiracleFeet –-raised $4 976 only $7 524 more to raise by June 17, 2018 to help 50 kids with clubfoot (thanks to everyone who has helped out so far).

 

Today every part of me is saying screw it why am I the only who cares I have problems too but I’m going to rage, rage against the dying of my light I refuse to go gently into the night – I’m not just another number in the population statistic God created me to be extraordinary and I am going to continue behaving accordingly (even when every part of me wants to quit).

Day 1058: Never Say Die

Nothing in the world can take the place of Persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan ‘Press On’ has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race. – Calvin Coolidge

It’s 12  : 03 PM on day 1058 of my journey towards independence and I’ve managed to   brush my teeth,  feed myself  All Bran Flakes for breakfast,   pray, read Judges 17,   publish my Disability of the Day feature,   tweet and Facebook about my campaign –  I did the best I could to inform people about human trafficking and slavery with two antibiotics in my system I hate being on drugs I feel like so dull  and to think all this could have been avoided if I just covered up my wound learn from my mistake never leave a wound open it will cause more trouble than it’s worth.

As of today I only have 70 days to raise $250 more to reach my goal of raising $1000 for the Not For Sale Campaign I may reach my goal with minutes to spare or I may reach it in the next two days but rest assured I will reach it I may not be the smartest or most eloquent person you will ever meet but I work hard for as long as it takes to achieve my goals and perhaps because of that I almost always end up reaching my goals I believe that to succeed in life you have to have a never-say-die attitude you have to basically believe you’ll succeed even when it looks like you’re going to fail. Are you where you are in life because you just refused to quit on anything you did?
