I believe in GOD, I was baptized and raised in a Christian church. God undoubtedly puts each one of us here with purpose, how dedicated we are to fulfill our purpose as we enjoy the fruits he planted for us … is up to us. Kobe left the biggest impact on us as he could. He gave us everything he had while he was on the court. He taught us drive, consistency, determination, courage, and most importantly HEART. I’m still in disbelief, I didn’t know him personally but I felt his impact through his spirit & his energy.
I listened to his retirement speech, in it he said “It’s not about the destination, it’s about the late nights you stay up working hard. The early mornings you wake up and work hard. That’s the dream.”
While I can’t stop envisioning the reality of his family’s present state, I can clearly see how he filled his purpose. Life isn’t about us, it’s about how we use our own life to leave a lasting impact on the people around us.
It seems we live in a selfish era, where we get so warped into ourselves and our minuscule problems with no way of finding our way out. I was that girl, but I refuse to be her anymore. THIS is a way out, KOBE. We have suffered the loss of multiple legends within the past year. Each of them leaving their own special message. This is no coincidence & I’m certain GOD is calling them home with intention. May we learn from the ones we lose, while knowing we never lost them.
I don’t know everything, I don’t even know a lot. I KNOW that we all have purpose, & I will continue to share my thoughts & energy in hopes of my strength reaching you in your times of need.
I think we only fear death when we know we aren’t living up to our potential. I pray we all live fulfilling lives, that we overcome our current demons, that we show appreciation to the people & things we appreciate, that we are content with the choices we make and if we are not we stop making them.
Life is too short to prolong the day we start to make a change in our lives. I’m sending everyone reading this the confidence to take the first step to creating their own story. Write your chapters, live your dreams … but remember the dream isn’t in the destination, it’s in the work you put in. It’s not about us!
I AM SENDING ALL THE LOVE & ENERGY I HAVE TO EVERYONE AFFECTED BY THIS UNIMAGINABLE TRAGEDY.
