My Journey to A New Perspective: Part 3

Hollywood has its own sequels, and I am creating mine called "My Journey to A New Perspective". Don't you think that I got the timing right as the new Spiderman is out at the same time as my sequel? I hope my new sequel will have the same success as Spiderman at the box office.
 
I am writing this blog on my way to a wedding where I am Master of Ceremonies. I hope I am finish by the time I get there; especially now that I am trying to get use to my new phone. Yes, I have a new phone. The phone company told me that they are no longer using old models like my phone.  I had to get a new one. The good news is that the new phone comes with two months of free service. I like good deals.
 
I don't know if you had the chance to hear it but I so enjoyed the speech Kevin Durant, of the Oklahoma City Thunder, gave when he well deservedly received the award for Most Valuable Player of the Basketball season. It was a very emotional speech that made many people cry. I have to admit that I was one of them. Click HERE to view the speech.
 
I never knew about the tough times his family went through as he was growing up, raised by a single mother. I have seen his mother numerous times cheering for him at the games, but I didn't realize the enormous part she played in his life. No wonder KD said in his speech that she was the real MVP. When he tearfully said those words, no one in the room was sitting. She received a huge standing ovation from everybody.

Do you know what's so interestingly funny about all of this? It was just on the eve of the speech, that OKC got his butt kicked by the LA Clippers in game one. The next day, inspired by their best player’s speech, Oklahoma came back stronger than ever. Now they are leading in the series.
 
Here is another thing I learned: our tough times will be used to inspire others. I am looking forward to the day I  get to be on the other side. Maybe my troubles will inspire more than one.
 
Moral of the story? Do you want to be part of a Hollywood sequel? Just keep reading my blog and I will meet you at the box office.
 
Always a pleasure
 
Patrick
The Journeyman.
