La Vita e Bella – Life is Beautiful

January 27th, 2016 | Uncategorized

The other day I read a tweet from Stephen A Smith that read “The moment you start treating every day like it is a blessing, it will become one.” I am not a big fan of his I find him to be kind of a know it all but this quote really intrigued me. Life is beautiful and it is a blessing but it’s easy to forget when you have a lot going on. 


With the new semester starting this week and talks of internships and jobs in the summer I find myself worrying about the future. I have so many aspirations and at times I feel like if I don’t fulfill them I won’t be happy. That leads me to big questions in my life right now. Where does true happiness lie for me in the future and when I look back on my life 20 years from now what will I be proud to say that I did? 

Will I find satisfaction and joy in landing a nice job in the sports industry making enough money to support my family? Will I regret it if I don’t push myself as hard as I can to continue playing basketball professionally? Or is true happiness found in always knowing you tried to be the best person you could be? Maybe the relationships we form along the way will hold more value than any accomplishment.


I guess for now I’m gonna try my best to treat everyday like a blessing because it is one, and enjoy this experience and treasure it. I’ll leave the future up to the man upstairs. He always has my back.Thanks for reading folks.
