Can you even imagine how difficult it was for him in that moment? The moment he knew that not only his own life was about to end, but that of his daughter...a life he helped create.
Can you imagine how he felt as a father knowing he couldn't protect her?
Can you imagine him holding her, consoling her, telling her he loved her as that helicopter went down?
As a parent, I can tell you, Kobe Bryant's greatest fear was realized today. And it wasn't the fear for his own life, but for that of his beautiful daughter.
Because as a parent, your life means nothing in comparison to the lives of your children.
We live for our children. We breathe for our children. They are our reason for being.
We would also die for them, without hesitation.
Without question, without a moments notice, we would lay down our own lives to ensure theirs.
Just thinking of his internal struggle in those last moments tears my heart into pieces.
He knew his daughter's young life was ending. He knew he was leaving 3 other precious children behind. Oh, how his heart must have ached!
Can you even imagine the agony that played out in his mind? Every parents worst nightmare happening to him in real time.
He was there when his sweet girl took her first breath, and he was there with her when she took her last.
And that's the only solace I can find in this...that he was there. In her final moments, her daddy was there to remind her of his undying love.
And with everything in me, I hope that baby felt every ounce of love her daddy had for her. I hope it overwhelmed her, and carried her straight into paradise.
Because I know that's all her daddy wanted too.
Rest in peace Kobe and Gigi. Our hearts mourn you ❤
Hug your children extra tight tonight, mamas and daddies. Tomorrow is never promised.

One of the greatest gifts this life has to offer is pain.
You see, most people go through life trying to avoid pain wherever they can.
They put up walls and keep themselves from entering new relationships because the pain from the last one stung a little too much.
They avoid doing that last couple of reps because the pain of doing them becomes a bit too uncomfortable.
They avoid asking another bank or entity for finance because they don’t want to feel the pain of being rejected, they avoid avoid waking up a nit earlier because they don’t want to feel the pain of heavy eyes, and they avoid sharing their ides and opinions because they don’t want
Some people are so busy avoiding pain that they forget what’s its’ truly like to live.
But let me share something with you, pain, when properly harnessed, has one of the most refining qualities you could ever experience.
Pain forces you to grow when it would otherwise be easier to remain stagnant.
Pain forces you to change something when it would otherwise be easier to stay the same.
Pain is where the magic of becoming happens.
Don’t avoid pain, face it, and then conquer it.
LIVE & LOVE Like There Is No Tomorrow Because You NEVER Know When It Will Be Your Time 💔💔💔RIP Kobe & Gianna Bryant & ALL The Victims That Lost Their Lives Yesterday Tragically May God Grant EVERYONE Peace & Strength🙏🏾🙏🏾

One of the biggest injustices that we can do to ourselves is allowing other people to dictate how we should feel. Your feelings are YOURS. You are not required to justify them, argue their merit or receive permission to feel the way that you do, in the same way that other people's feelings are THEIR'S and when they tell you that you've hurt them, you don't get to decide that you didn't. It doesn't matter what you meant to do, what they don't understand or what they did that made you do what you did. Feelings are SUPPOSED to be sensitive. They're your soul's connection to your humanity. 💚💚💚 #selfcare#feelings#emotions#lovegoals#grief#hurt#pain#mentalhealth
So I've been going through a cleanse sort of.
I started smoking again, which is obviously not good. My friend??/ roommate gives me panic attacks so I always end up sleeping in the living room. My back kills me a lot.
He always wants me to sleep in his bed with him. To cuddle him. And I always say no. Every time I do, in restless. Cold almost. I cant be around him anymore. He doesnt scare me, I just cant deal with being around him anymore.
I go on lots of walks. The sky always seems to take me in with open arms. I feel alone in its presence. Like my body is being swallowed up by this light overwhelming feeling of.. Nothing.
I dont feel much of anything anymore.
I drove hours away to visit someone I havent seen in over a year. We agreed not to catch feelings again, but the warmth we shared and the look he gave me told me it was already failing. That was kinda the point.
I'm happy i got to see him again though. I dont know why i called him. I dont know why he called back.
I dont know why I even survived.
This was forever ago, of course. I'm doing okay physically and my liver and kidneys didnt shut down this time around.
God. I get to start over soon.
I havent told my family or my friends that I lied when I said I was visiting once I'm gone.
Once I leave, I'm not coming back.
And the only real reason I decided this was because of the one sleeping in my bedroom.
I think itll be okay. °

Happy bEarthday to my dear brother Jamarr Anthony Jordan. He made his entrance into this world 39 years ago today. I remember vividly being 4 years old and excitedly waiting for my mom to call and tell us "our" new baby was here. Man, I was so excited about this guy. This year marks 20 years that we've recognized this day without him.
I will NEVER get used to celebrating the earthly "birth" of a person who is no longer here. It used to provide comfort, but this year I wasn't in the mood. I purposely chose not to do anything today. Instead I rested, reflected on old times, shed some tears, and I rested some more. Yesterday was a huge trigger (as I'm sure it was for a lot of us) and I'm emotionally exhausted today. I miss my brother so, so much. 💚💚💚💚
CARTILAGE REPAIR SURGERY
Cartilage injuries are very common. One of the most successful treatments are osteochondral allograft transplants (getting cartilage from a deceased young donor to replace the damaged tissue). Almost 8 out of 10 will still function after 10 years.
Recovery after knee cartilage surgery:
For the first few days after knee cartilage surgery, patient recovery guidelines for cartilage repairs are similar to the guidelines for any knee surgery. The focus is on knee elevation, pain relief, ice to control swelling, incision protection, and rest.
Patients should be prepared to be on crutches for six weeks. To encourage cartilage healing, patients will also use a continuous passive motion (CPM) machine. Cartilage isn’t fed by nutrients from blood vessels, but by nutrients from the synovial fluid in the joint. We know from the scientific literature that in order for the fluid to deliver proper nourishment to the cartilage, the knee has to be moving. The CPM machine straightens and bends the knee without pressure or stress on the joint. This continual motion supports good nourishment to the cartilage cells.
Most patients are able to return to some physical activity after six to eight weeks, but full recovery after cartilage repair surgery can take anywhere from three to six months.

Life is full of struggles
Life is full of complications
Life is full of challenges
Don’t burden those you care about with promises you cant keep.. Those who have faith in you wil always sit there and have confidence that you will be there and do what you promised...
So save them the pain and don’t promise what you want be able to provide..

Pain is the signal to let us know that we have been injured or are ill. Pain also arises from tension and discomfort caused by how we respond to stress when we are threatened physically, emotionally, mentally, or spiritually. Our nervous system reacts automatically to ensure that we are protected from harm or injury.
Pain is an essential part of our natural survival system, warning us that something is wrong and motivating us to give our body attention.
Many parts of the brain collaborate in turning on pain as a survival response including areas that govern past memories, emotions, and mood. No pain is felt until the brain has interpreted the information it has received.
According to Peter Levine there at three types of pain physical, emotional, and posttraumatic.
Physical Pain- comes from actual physical injury and damage to the tissue.
Emotional Pain- is formed by strong and unresolved emotions that have been stored in the body instead of being expressed.
Post-traumatic Pain- generated by a much stronger reaction to overwhelming terrifying and devastating events.
Although there were three classifications and all have very obvious distinctions, they overlap each other. Pain is multi-dimensional. many pain conditions include emotional reactions and interactions with past trauma. Most emotional pain conditions will also feature somatic symptoms such as physical pain that is linked to past trauma. And post-traumatic conditions involve a complex combination of all three types of pains.

3 weeks ago I started on Copaxone... last week I stopped it... the side effects for me included high fever, vertigo and pain all over my body to the point I thought this is it.... which is definitely not normal. But since I started taking it I get migraines all the time again... it sucks when your body fails! Over and over again.... #mssucks#sideeffects#pain
