Re-Member His Members

Every once in awhile I have a moment where I realize the lessons I learned or the things I experienced through basketball were preparing me for life after. I use to dread film sessions. Especially if it was one on one with the coach. It was the time where you were told exactly what you need to work on, what you did wrong and typically you had to then watch it over and over. I'm guessing the thought was that would really drill it home, which it did. Not only all that but the whole experience teaches you to humbly enter into a moment of conflict. A moment where you don't need to defend yourself what's done is done but it's still helpful for someone to address what was done, right, wrong or ind

30 Days: Out with the Old & In with the New

This 30 days has felt like forever, the longest 30 days in the history of the world, an impossible endeavor. I have wanted to give up a million times. 30 days makes me think of our members.

From One Extreme to the Next

The minute (possibly second) something changes in my life I leap to the opposite extreme “reality”. In other words something that may have seemed possible for a moment can suddenly seem impossible in the next. I am sure it is my defense mechanism; I want to convince myself that while at one point something seemed “good” I am sure I will be just fine without it, ever. DRAMA, I know. Just keepin’ real real. So yes, well I dwell on things like Hope Street, 5 year plans, marriage, leadership, kids, family etc. (you get the point)...I am still a person in the now who would benefit greatly from being present. Someone who chooses to not dwell on the past, but also to not get lost in the abyss that
