- Have you ever been so overwhelmed with situations? that you feel you have the most troubles in life! You cannot think or function properly as a human being. I have been in that shoe before. Very tight and uncomfortable but you have no choice! To you, walking bare feet saves the sole of your feet from the harshness of the ground or, so you feel ! ‘PERCEPTION’ matters a lot in life. How we view things, situations, opinions and behaviours is a key to understanding whatever affects you or others around you and only that can make you react positively or negatively. PERCEPTION!
- I changed my perception when I chose happiness. I stopped seeing myself through the eyes of other people because I saw nothing good in their eyes. I stopped listening through the ears of other people because all I heard was negativity. I stopped feeling through the heart and soul of other people because I could not feel myself no more. I stopped understanding with the intelligence of others . For their ultimate knowledge was the beginning of my quest to discovering who I truly am . So I turned to myself for solace, love and appreciation. I asked my creator for self acceptance and inner peace. For a very long time I imprisoned my soul, my heart, my feelings, my thoughts, my quest, my’ SELF’ and all that makes me who and what I am because of the PERCEPTION other people made me have about myself. It all ended when I discovered my FREEDOM!
- I define FREEDOM as knowing who you are, accepting who you are and what you have. Teaching others , with love and compassion in your heart to understand and accept you, as you are and for them to be at peace with themselves. I made my peace a long time ago and made a choice too. My choice is FREEDOM!
- Freedom is me saying and telling people that I HAVE SICKLE CELL AND I LOVE MY LIFE. Freedom is me saying I AM A SICKLE CELL WARRIOR, PROUD OF AND HAPPY WITH MY LIFE. Freedom is me saying no one has a right to see me less than them or judge me because we do not have the same HEALTHY CELLS.
Freedom is me saying I love every SICKLE CELL INDIVIDUAL UNCONDITIONALLY. Freedom is me saying despite you are different from me I LOVE YOU FOR BEING YOU. Freedom is me saying I AM BEAUTIFUL DESPITE MY IMPERFECTIONS. Freedom is me saying I AM FREE ! Freedom is me saying this is……….
