Yesterday Kobe Bryant and his daughter, Gigi passed away yesterday in a helicopter accident. The whole world will be grieving for Kobe and his daughter our prayers are with Vanessa and his Kobes mother. I never met him personally but I respect what he did for the homeless teenagers in the Los Angeles area by building a shelter to help the homeless. May their family heal and be comforted from this tragic accident. Just a day before this Kobe was congratulating Lebron James for beating his record and like a gentleman Kobe congratulated him for his win and that is indeed what the world needs more of Brotherly Love. The Los Angeles Lakers is Ervin's favorite team so I am sure he felt some type of way because he adored Kobe. It's ironic because Ervin was making plans to spend his 50th birthday in LA this year and I'm sure a Laker game was on the agenda. I am extremely thankful for my life I have and the responsibilities life has blessed me with. As a student of the Universe I am always learning and humbling myself to stay focused and committed to the goals I have at hand. Recently I finally downloaded some recipes so that I can stay healthy with my diet and that will compliment my work outs. My weight has been showing in my face and I am not impressed with how I physically look though I am not obese obese I am obese for me. My routine of going to the gym is sometimes interrupted by rides and family responsibilities having to juggle that has been challenging but I am keeping the rhythm.
As I continue to grow and be the best of myself I have come to the reality I have some more growing to do. I have been reading Robert Greene's book "The Laws of Human Nature" and I came across a chapter I happened to see myself in. I was writing a letter to a family relative when I was reading the book and included some thoughts of how I felt about our relationship over the years.
Life is short and we should always take advantage we have on earth with our loved ones. As the days draw closer I am excited to meet my new grand baby who will be arriving next month. Adianna is getting bigger and getting quite tired which are sure signs she's coming soon hopefully within the next two weeks I cant see her carrying all the way to end of February like the doctor predicted.
I have been studying for my FAA test and feel quite confident about taking my test next month. I finally was able to grab a map so I can understand the legends and class airspace.
Yesterday I rested and went to the gym and I will have to say I was depressed while working out.
I have been educating my mind reading and came across this quote which helps me to deal with folks with a bad attitude. It's never about the end result its about the journey we took to get to our final destination...
If you come across any special trait of meanness or stupidity...you must be careful not to let annoy or distress you, but to look upon it merely as an addition to your knowledge - a new fact to be considered in studying the character of humanity. Your attitude towards it will be that of the mineralogist who stumbles upon a very characteristic specimen of a mineral.
