Early Morning breath

One Shot, You can't make a shot you don't take. without pressure. the diamond who is you can't be made.

One Shot,
You can’t make a shot you don’t take.
without pressure. the diamond who is you can’t be made.

So it’s a few hours before my right shoulder surgery, and my shooting arm is about to be in a caste.

it hits me. Did I take every shot i had this year? At 23 years of age. did I take 365 shots worth taking?


The answer is no. I took 365 but did not mean every one.


now what should play in your head is the



Dekembe  Mutombo commercial ” no, no, no not in my house”  http://bit.ly/Zij5iV.


I took shots worth taking.


and chose to pass the ball instead of shooting. Learning that you are born with two ears and one mouth for a reason. a mind state of humility that a student of life I feel should learn. With every trial God puts in our path it gives you life stamina. lol


Im blessed with every day I am given, and so are you.
