Fantasy FB Blues

Man oh man has this been a long season so far. Now Ive had my losing streaks before but Ive been able to dig my way out and actually have a successful run for the title, but this year..... I DON"T KNOW. Still I have to keep going and making moves with players even if I wanna throw the computer across the room and just let all my players go.. LOL. Im just venting but somethings gotta change. Things happen for a reason. Maybe my drafting was not as good as I had planned and then I made a few deals that just haven't panned out but STILL!!!!... Ha. We shall see. until next week. NEVER QUIT

Some things just don't make sense

Its amazing how good I can feel some days. Im like thinking in my head I must be healed I feel so good. I remember the days when it was the norm to feel good now those days stand out and I have to second guess the feeling. Like wait do I feel something or was that pain there before. Im telling you though keeping all that has gone on in the forefront has really made a lot of other things not so important. I keep in mind what really matters . Check for that in your world. What is really important? When all else is on the line what really matters? NEVER QUIT

much love

Reconnecting

Whats up everyone. Hope all is well. Now that Im back in LA its time to catch up with everyone that I haven't seen or had a chance to rap with in months. Its also a chance to reconnect with some of my family. My brother has welcomed me back with open arms and is making the transition as smooth as possible. The steps that it takes to come back into the city that is so huge and has so much going on can be intimidating. I haven't been gone from this city for more than two months at a time in the last 8 years. So yes it has to take some time.

A helping hand

No matter how bad things seem you can always find someone that is going through or that has gone through the same thing that you have. So when it hits the fan find a support system. Do not hesitate when it comes to this as it can be the driving force that pulls you through to the other side. It can be another reason to get out of bed in the morning... Knowing that someone else has done the same thing... Went through the same pain... Went through the same fatigue. Still pushed through and made it to the other side of treatment and care. KEEP PUSHING... NEVER QUIT.

The Big Fish

Went to go see the Social Network tonight and one thing that stood out when speaking about life was the comparison to catching a bunch of small trout or catching the one huge marlin... A lot of times I look at my life that way. Its hard being in the field of entertainment but I just can't help but think if I fish a little longer then the big catch is going to come. I enjoy fishing so much that the little bites keep me throwing the bait in one more time. So go for the big catch it'll be something that you can always remember. Life is short go hard... NEVER QUIT

Family

Isn't it crazy how when it really hits the fan you can really see who is down for you and who really loves you. The little things that people will do will really tell you whats up. Just watch and you will see. They will show themselves if not instantly then in due time it will come through. The love will shine through and has come through in so many ways. I am grateful for those that have shared that love. This love has brought me through such hard and trying times. NEVER QUIT

On the Right Path

Whats up everyone.... So i just spoke with the bone marrow transplant nurse and she was so helpful and kind. I learned of the process that I will be going through when getting a bone marrow transplant. Its a pretty real process but we have gone through a lot so far already. Now its time to turn up the heat and nail this thing once and for all. It was an awakening to hear that I had an aggressive form of lymphoma. These words I have not heard but I figured as much.. So sometimes the truth is hard to swallow but these are the cards that I have been dealt and Ill play them to win..

Blocking out the Negative

Whats up all? Hope you are well. Just got a phone call from the bone marrow transplant nurse. I didn't get a chance to talk to her but my mind races to the thoughts of what this all can mean. I just want the best for me of course but the unknown is truly a little intimidating. Still its time to take it to the next level and get this thing done. Im ready to be healed. NEVER QUIT

Whats life about

With so much on my mind sometimes its nice to just not think but these days that seems impossible What more could one want when they are battling for their lives. Isn't living enough. Still there are sometimes thoughts of more. More fun, more love, more more.. I feel bad about wanting more than just life itself but thats what living has been for the last 31 years. I don't know. Live life. Never Quit

Home!!

What a trip this has been... Finally, God has gotten my mom and I to our destination safe and sound. It was a long trip but it was a great one. All this time spent with mom was really cemented by our trip across the country together.. The hardest part was going from EL Paso threw the Arizona desert. Not much to see. But there were some beautiful spots in all states. I suggest that if you can make this trip then do so because I will always remember this. So even if you are going through hard times.. try to do something that you would do in normal times. Never Quit

much love
