In the Zone in Zona

Talk about a barren land... The ride from El Paso to Phoenix was tough. Talk about mad thinking time. So many thoughts raced through my mind. People of the past things to do in the future. I am so excited about the new start in LA. I feel like I have a chance to really start over and reinvent myself. Try that sometime. Its nice to let the past be the past and start a new way. Who knows what the future will hold but I will live life to the fullest.... Lets make history. Never Quit

Passing time in El Paso

13 hours later I have arrived in El Paso. This has been quite a trip. We have seen many different landscapes and had a great lunch in San Antonio on the River Walk. Now we are going into the home stretch. Ive had a lot of time to think while on this journey as well. Thoughts of recovery but also thoughts of what has gone down over the last six months. LA is home to me and its time to really plant some roots. This is where I will heal this is where I will grow. Find a home and lock into something real. NEVER QUIT

H-town

Whats up Fam..Here is a shout from Houston. We are making our way across the country to LA in order to finish up treatment and return to home. Home...For awhile it felt like this day was not going to come. I knew I had to do what I had to do but I was always longing for what I knew. This road trip has been fun so far. Now we are about to embark on the hardest stretch. A ten hour gig across Texas and into New Mexico. I am looking forward to seeing the change in our environment but still have some anxiety for the length of the ride. Wish me luck. NEVER QUIT.

The Journey

So we hit Alabama and have decided to stay with some friends of the family. It has been a lovely visit and we have had great conversation and food. This is going to be a great experience going across the country with my mom. What a trip. If you haven't done it then I suggest one day you do just to see the changing of the landscape and the change in environment. It is quite the ride. Not Easy though but anything that is worth it is not easy. Never Quit

The Trek Has Started

So we have decided to move the mission to California. It wasn't necessarily our decision. The hospital said that they wouldn't perform certain procedures because of costs so we have to make the move. My mom and I are currently in Florida and we are making our way across the country.. Hope to have more progress and stories for ya as we make our way to the WEST COAST...NEVER QUIT

Living without fear

Anytime a negative thought comes into my mind about the situation I take a minute to thank God for the healing and push the negative thoughts out of my mind. Think positive live life and do as much as possible. I am on the road right now heading back to Cali and I have plenty of time to think and pray. I will be in a positive state of mind no matter what happens. NEVER QUIT

Missing Home

Talking to my girl today i realize the closer I get to LA the more I am missing her. Her strength, support and love. Its the little things in life that go along way and there are so many small things that she does that make me smile and just miss her so much. Can't wait to get home. Can't wait to get better... Never Quit.

Friends

If you didn't know it by  now I love my friend and they show mad crazy love for me. I think that is what Id like to focus on right now. Where and who i spend my time with has to be focused on those that I love and who love me. Why not right? We spend so much time in life smiling and laughing in the faces of those who we really don't like and for what? A promotion or to make someone else happy.. Don 't get me wrong I know sometimes we have to do what we have to do and its not always going to be fun and games but for the times that you don't have to be on.... Hang with those you love.

Let it Go

Whats up all.. Though my last entry was one that may have seemed harsh I still feel good. Some days are harder than others but the main thing in my world is to stay positive and in the zone. I just had a great convo with a great friend and we were talking about letting things go and how much things weigh you down... Less is more. It sounds corny but its true. Some times we collect things and we hold onto things that we don't need. Think about it though the more we hold onto the more it weighs us down... let it go and be free of the burden of things.

Stick to your word

When you say that you are going to do something just stick to your word and do it. Don't leave people out there thinking its one way when its not. Be true to your word. This is the main thoughts of the night because I'm realizing that some folks say what they don't mean and it really affects others. BE REAL... NEVER QUIT..

much love
