My thoughts on what happened Sunday night

Uncategorized Jan 27, 2020

What came out of Sunday was a mix of emotions for most people Kobe Bryant and his daughter Gigi and seven other passengers died in a helicopter crash on the way to his daughters game. That same night the Grammys were held and what Alicia Keys called the house the Kobe Bryant built, Staples stadium.

Watching the show that night and the dedication that people had towards Kobe was very emotional and very moving.  What Usher did for prince was crazy good and then you have Billie Eilish an 18-year-old girl who has been the youngest nominated for six Grammys and she took home four of the major categories which is only been done once by Christopher Cross years ago and now she, at the young age of 18 is the first woman to ever bring home four Grammys in the major categories.

The thing that is the most amazing piece of all of it is that her and her brother write their music in their bedroom.  They believe in themselves enough to try they don’t spend tons of money on a studio and being all crazy.  They just sit and write music.  They do something that makes them feel good,  they do something from their heart,  they do something from the passion that is burning within them and that is really the key to life.

Kobe Bryant live that life.  The passion to giving back,  to doing things for others, to being great yourself so that you can show others that there is a path.  That they can be great too.  Billie Eilish did the same thing with her music and what she did last night at the Grammys.  

Ellen said yesterday on her show life is short.  We say it all the time.  Do we really understand what it means?  Does it always have to take someone good to be taken from us to understand?  Do you really understand it when it does happen?  

God took Kobe and Gigi on Sunday which broke a lot of hearts and he also gave us purpose and inspiration by the way Kobe Bryant lived his life and what happened with Billie Eilish  at the Grammys last night.  Keep dreaming! Keep pursuing those passions!  Be kind.   Love each other.   Go after everything in this life that you want with crazy energy,  crazy passion!  Surround yourself with the people who love you and care about you and want the best for you!  Block out the rest!   Just go after everything you want!
