End of Day One: Living Below the Line
I have officially completed Day One of Live Below the Line…and it was hard. There wasn’t a moment where I didn’t want to grab a snack, drive down to McDonald’s, or whatever to satisfy my hunger.
I will admit…there were many moments where I thought about quitting. Started making excuses about why I shouldn’t take my body and mind through this, including my chronic illnesses of tension headaches and Crohn’s disease.
But, I kept telling myself…
over 1.2 billion people don’t have a choice. Some of them have ailments. All of them have challenges.
And, one of my first steps of making a difference in fighting extreme poverty would be to make it through this week. And, then who knows what the next step may be. But, I know it will be worthwhile.
So…Day One, Consumption: Two pieces of bread, a pack of ramen noodles and water.
Goal #1: Start my fight against extreme poverty.
Please donate to my cause. All proceeds are giving to Opportunity International and their efforts in fighting extreme poverty.
