Day 2438: Right Where I’m Supposed To Be

I am right where I’m supposed to be at this stage in my life (even though sometimes it doesn’t feel like it) – that’s what I know.

 

It’s 12 : 09  PM on day 2438 of my journey towards independence and I managed to pray,   have breakfast, read Acts 1: 8  and learn a new word – Definitions for slacktivism
actions taken to bring about political or social change but requiring only minimal commitment, effort, or risk: students engaging in slacktivism by signing an online petition.

 

This morning I realized that I am right where I’m supposed to be at this stage in my life because every experience is preparing me for the greater plan that God has had for my life even before I was conceived.

Day 2290: Family Time 2016

“Presence is more than just being there. When you take time out, be all there, with your family, friends & quiet time. It’s more than presence.” – Catherine Constantinides

 

It’s 3: 58 PM on day 2290 of my journey towards independence and I managed to pray,   have breakfast, go shopping with family – finally bought Christmas presents for everyone (we do family gifts so each family within our family gets 1 gift from each of the other families), have lunch with family  and work on my  25 Smiles Campaign    – yesterday Joshua, Jonathan and Jeremiah   donated $25 and Stan Faryna donated $25 (thanks SO MUCH to to all of them) which brings the total  raised to $9 311.04 only  $3 138.96 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 ) (Note: My fundraising page has been revamped and because it takes time to move the info from the old platform to the new the total raised looks less than it actually is.

 

Today was a day spent with family shopping with family, eating with family, playing with family…. It was nice and I seldom thought about all the stuff I needed to get done it was nice from now onwards I’m just going to be wherever I am life’s more enjoyable that way.

Day 2265: Giving Time

Your time is the best gift you can give anyone – that’s what I was reminded of.

 

it’s 11: 30 AM on day 2265 of my journey towards independence and I managed to pray, have breakfast,  read Isaiah 12:4    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 ).

 

Today while I was calling people I was reminded that your time is the best gift you can give anyone because everybody just wants to know that they matter.

Day 2252: Time For Everything

There’s a time for everything– that’s what I keep realizing.

 

it’s 11: 58  AM on day 2252 of my journey towards independence and I managed to pray, have breakfast,  read 2 Kings 17:38-39     and work on my  25 Smiles Campaign    –raised $9 011.04 only  $3 488.96 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 ).

 

Today I realized yet again that there’s a time for everything there are times I need to push myself and there other times that I need to rest it’s so hard because my mind and my heart also want to live to the fullest but sometimes my body is either too tired or too much in pain (I always say my body does not match my spirit)

Day 2203: Giving Time

Your time is the best gift you can give people – that’s what I keep being reminded of.

 

It’s 10 : 25  AM on day 2203 of my journey towards independence and I managed to pray, read 2 Corinthians 12:9-10, have breakfast and work on my  25 Smiles Campaign    –raised $7 675 only  $4 825 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 ).

 

Today I was reminded that time is the best gift you can give people because when you give people your time you give them a chunk of your life you’ll never get back.

Day 1929: Time flies

Time flies – that’s what I keep realizing.

 

It’s 3: 33 PM on day 1833 of my journey towards independence and day 25 of our India trip 2015 prayed  thing read 1 Corinthians 14, had breakfast, went shopping at Big Bazaar and hung out with the godparents

 

Two days from now we’ll be heading back to South Africa time flies when you’re with the ones you love.

Day 1838: Don’t Waste Your Life

Don’t waste a second of your life– that’s my message to the world.

 

It’s 12 :  10 PM on day 1838  of my journey towards independence and I’ve managed to brush my teeth,  pray, read John 4,    publish my Disability of the Day feature, learn one new thing – Propitious [pro·pi·tious] adj. (1) Indicating a good chance of success; favorable. “It was a propitious time to leave the party without offending the host.” (2) Favorably disposed toward someone.–  and  promote my Educate Generations campaign – $5 025 raised so far with 7 days to go (thanks all 🙂 ) .

 

Today I realized  that when I’m not eating, sleeping, in the bathroom, at physiotherapy, at church or supporting our national sports teams (because I’m nothing if not patriotic) I literally spend every second trying to make a difference which makes me smile and makes me really proud.

Day 1741: Life and Time

No matter how much time we save by doing things in advance we will never do the things we want to do unless they are a priority – that’s what I realized yesterday.

 

It’s 12 : 00 PM on day 1741 of my journey towards independence and I’ve managed to brush my teeth, pray,  read Nahum 2, publish my Disability of the Day feature,   feed myself Puri and chicken curry  for breakfast, learn one new thing –A blue moon is a second full moon in a calendar month. Each year, the moon completes its final cycle about 11 days before the Earth finishes its orbit around the sun. These days add up, and every two and a half years or so, there is an extra full moon  – go pick my sister up at the airport ,    promote my Educate Generations campaign – $3 145 raised so far 🙂 –  and hang out with family..

 

Yesterday I realized that no matter how much time we save by doing things in advance we will never do the things we want to do unless they are a priority I always do most of my work in advance so I can use my free time to read but often I just end up doing more work during my free time there’s so much to do and only twenty-four hours in a day I feel like a hamster on a wheel I just hope to finish reading Animal Farm before the end of 2015.

Day 1670: Spending Your Character

Doing the right thing costs you money and time but doing the wrong thing costs you your character what you choose to spend depends on what you value most – that’s what I realized today.

 

It’s 12 : 00 PM on day 1670 of my journey towards independence and I’ve managed to brush my teeth, pray,    read Ezekiel 30, publish my Disability of the Day feature,   learn one new thing –Gestation [period of a zebra]: 12-13 months – have breakfast and hang out with family (it’s Easter break here so everyone’s home).

 

Today I realized that doing the right thing costs you money and time but doing the wrong thing costs you your character what you choose to spend depends on what you value most I would rather spend my money and time and keep my character than keep my money and time and spend my character. Do you spend your money and time or do you spend your character?

Day 1650: Grief and Time

With time grief doesn’t go away it just changes – that’s what I keep realizing.

 

It’s 1 :  03 PM on day 1650 of my journey towards independence and I’ve managed to  brush my teeth,  pray,  read Ezekiel 10, publish my Disability of the Day feature, learn one new thing –Cuddling Releases Natural Painkillers. Oxytocin, the so-called love or cuddle hormone, is produced during an embrace or cuddle. The hormone appears in the brain, ovaries and testicles and is thought to be involved in the bonding process. Research has found that a dose of oxytocin decreases headaches significantly, and for some it even makes the pain go away completely after 4 hours – feed myself egg and bread for breakfast and go shopping with mom.

 

Last year my grandma died in the first few months after her death I thought about her frequently but now days go by without me thinking of her and when something does finally remind me of her I feel so guilty for not remembering her more often it’s awful.
