Day 2609: Speak With Your Actions

Speak with your actions – that’s my message to the world

 

It’s 1 : 04   PM on day 2609 of my journey towards independence and I managed to pray,  read John 16:33 and promote my 50 New Feet Campaign benefiting MiracleFeet -raised $4 388 only $8 112 more to raise by June 17, 2018 to help 50 kids with clubfoot (thanks to everyone who has helped out so far).

 

Recently things happened that reminded me that words not followed by actions are awfully hollow which is not to say I don’t appreciate the kind words I just would appreciate the words even more if they were followed by solid actions. Speak to me with your actions so that I may hear you with my heart.

 

Day 2266: Words and the Power We Give Them to Hurt

The words of others don’t have the power to hurt you unless you believe them– that’s what I’d like everyone to know.

 

it’s 12: 06 PM on day 2266 of my journey towards independence and I managed to pray,   read Psalm 100: 4, go to church – today the sermon was about Joseph and how sometimes the right thing to do is not always the right thing to do –     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 somebody said something that taught me that the words of others don’t have the power to hurt me unless I believe them (know yourself and choose not to believe the hurtful things people say about you).

Day 2175: Say I Love You

Say the words I love you more often it won’t kill you – that’s my message to the world.

 

It’s 12 : 03  PM on day 2175 of my journey towards independence and I managed to   pray, have breakfast, read Revelation 1:7, learn one new thing –Although kopi luwak is a form of processing rather than a variety of coffee, it has been called the most expensive coffee in the world with retail prices reaching €550 / US$700 per kilogram.-   and work on my  25 Smiles Campaign    – yesterday Meg donated $25   (thanks SO MUCH  Meg your ongoing support means a lot 🙂  )  which brings the total  raised to $7 500 only  $5 000 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 🙂 ) .

 

Recently I’ve started forcing myself to say the words I love you more often it’s uncomfortable because I am not the mushy sort but since people can’t read my heart I’ll keep saying it hopefully with time it will feel less uncomfortable.

Day 2139: The Power of Words

Use your words carefully they have the power to heal or to hurt – that’s my message to myself and others.

 

It’s 12 :  00 PM on day 2139 of my journey towards independence and I managed to pray, read 2 Thessalonians 3:16, learn one new thing – The eyeball is the only organism which does not grow from birth. It is fully grown when you are born. When you look at a baby’s face, so see mostly iris and little white. As the baby grows, you get to see more and more of the eyeball. –   have breakfast,  and work on my  25 Smiles Campaign    –  raised $7 050 only  $5 450 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 thinking about the power of words while I don’t hate anyone the hurtful things people have said to me are etched in my mind as a reminder that every word we say has the power to heal or to hurt.

Day 2009: Words and Intentions

Hear what is said with the intention with which it was said – that’s what I’m learning.

 

It’s 12 : 03 PM on day 2009 of my journey towards independence and I managed to pray, read 1 Peter 2, learn one new thing – A jazz musician named Teri Pall invented a version of the cordless phone in 1965 but could not market her invention, as its 2-mile (3.2 km) range caused its radio signals to interfere with aircraft communications. In 1968, she sold her rights to the cordless phone to a manufacturer who modified it for practical use.–have breakfast and work on my 25 Smiles Campaign –  yesterday Catherine Cook who has donated to this campaign twice before  donated $25 (thanks SO MUCH Catherine  your ongoing support means the world to me I really don’t deserve you :) ) which brings the total raised to $3 337 only $2 913 more to raise by 10 Jan 2017  (SO SO SO GRATEFUL to everyone who has supported this campaign so far :)  ).

 

A couple of months ago someone new entered my life and every day she teaches me to hear what is said with the intention with which it was said sometimes people say things and we feel like they are attacking us but if we take our egos out of it and think she’s just stating a fact she’s not attacking me as a person then suddenly the sting is taken out of all that is said.

Day 1655: Words + Actions = Love

People who really love you don’t just say it they also show it in a million different ways– that’s what I keep realizing.

 

It’s 12 :  30 PM on day 1655 of my journey towards independence and I’ve managed to  pray, read Ezekiel 15 and publish my Disability of the Day feature, learn one new thing – Uranus has at least 27 moons.All of the Jovian planets (Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune) have large numbers of moons. Some of them are very small, asteroid sized objects that are difficult to detect. So the exact number of moons is unknown, but at this time 27 are known to exist.  watch the Australia vs. India  World Cup match,  exercise,  feed myself bran flakes for breakfast and promote my Educate Generations campaign– $2 558 raised so far 🙂 .

 

Today I realized people who really love you don’t just say it they also show it in a million different ways I know with a hundred percent certainty that some people in my life love me and would do anything for me while others just show up on special occasions or use me to pass the time I try to focus on the people who love me but it still hurts when you realize that the people you would do anything for wouldn’t do the same for you.

Day 1619: The good you say and do backfiring on you

Sometimes the good you try to do does you no good – that’s what I realized this morning.

 

It’s 12 : 32 PM on day 1619 of my journey towards independence and I’ve managed to stretch my hamstrings (because I have Cerebral Palsy and can’t walk my hamstrings have to be stretched to keep my tendons the right length it is a painful but necessary exercise which I’m supposed to do every day of my life),   brush my teeth, pray,    read Jeremiah 36, publish my Disability of the Day feature, learn one new thing –The space between your pointer finger and thumb is called the “purlicue.” –  feed myself egg with bread  for breakfast and  promote my Educate Generations campaign – $1 900 raised so far I have to do something different I was thinking maybe I could make a video asking Taylor Swift to check out my page but I’m on the fence about it because I don’t want to be one of the millions of people who are trying to use her.

 

This morning I realized sometimes the good you try to do does you no good I say and do most things I say and do with the best intentions but some people act like I say what I say and do what I do with the intention of hurting others it hurts but it’s okay God knows my intentions and sees inside my heart in the end that’s what matters most.

Day 1295: Words may lie but actions do not

Words may lie but actions do not – that’s what I keep realizing.

 

It’s 12  : 09  PM on day 1295 of my journey towards independence and I’ve managed to  pray,   brush my teeth, read Job 29,  publish my Disability of the Day feature, feed myself bran flakes for breakfast, promote my Eradicate AIDS campaign – no donations so far today but three people promised to donate soon – practice sitting up straight to strengthen my core muscles, stretch my hamstrings and continue promoting my campaign – still no luck.

 

This morning I was thinking about people who lift me up with their words and let me down with their actions people say I’m amazing and inspirational (I don’t believe I’m either of those things I’m just a girl trying to change the world) but when I ask for their help most of them disappear faster than Houdini just goes to show words may lie but actions do not. When you’re trying to figure out if someone cares about you or not do you listen to what they say or look at what they do?

Day 1290: “I’m praying for you”

Hear words with the intention in which they were said–that’s what I keep learning.

 

It’s 1  : 15  PM on day 1290 of my journey towards independence and I’ve managed to  pray,   brush my teeth, read Job 24,  publish my Disability of the Day feature, feed myself boiled egg and All Bran Flakes for breakfast, practice sitting up straight to strengthen my core muscles, stretch my hamstrings and promote my Eradicate AIDS campaign – no donations so far today but Kate made a donation yesterday evening (THANK YOU God and THANK YOU Kate) which brings my total raised to $549.47.

 

Yesterday somebody came by with a birthday gift and just as she was about to leave she said I’m praying for you to which I think I said sincerely thank you I’m praying for you too in the past when people said I’m praying for you I would get really defensive and think do I look like I need extra prayers or something but now I realize the things people say to me come from a good place so I embrace it. Do you hear the intention behind people’s words?

Day 1252: Actions speak a lot louder than words

Actions speak a lot louder than words– that’s what I’ve come to realize.

 

It’s 1  : 42 PM on day 1252 of my journey towards independence and I’ve managed to  pray, brush my teeth,  read Nehemiah 9,  feed myself All Bran Flakes for breakfast,   publish my Disability of the Day feature, publish my Kid of the Week feature,  promote my Eradicate AIDS campaign –   my brother’s so sweet he placed 4th in a chess tournament yesterday and offered to donate his winnings to Eradicate AIDS but I couldn’t take his money because I knew he probably wanted to use the money for something else.

 

Last night my mom and I were talking about how some people are all talk and no action some people pat you on the head and tell you how proud they are of you and all that you do but when you ask for their help suddenly they can’t get far enough away from you it’s so frustrating sometimes I feel like screaming at people WHAT MATTERS IN LIFE IS HOW MANY PEOPLE YOU HELP NOT HOW MANY PEOPLE LIKE YOUR FACEBOOK STATUSES OR HOW MANY FOLLOWERS YOU HAVE ON TWITTER. Do you get upset when people build you up with their words and let you down with their actions?
