A Happy Life? 7/27/12
    Today I read two different articles about happiness and successful people. The one I read about happy people will shock you, no really it won't. Now I say it won't shock you but that's guessing that you want to be happy the way I think of happy. If money and power are your goals then you should are not going to like what I am about to say. The reason some people are happier than you is not because they have more but because they don't mind sometimes having less. If you see someone in a nicer car than you are jealous of them because they have more or happy for them that they made it. Money can buy you a ton of awesome stuff but at the end of the day if you are not a good person then your probably not that happy. Giving away a ton of money to charity because you are rich does not make you a good person either because we both know you are doing that for show. Your happiness is yours and I hope you are happy.
    Now the article I read on successful people basically echoed some of the same attributes, it said that people that make it in life and are successful are grateful for what they have. They also realize that life is a long road and it has it ups and downs. Are you grateful for what you have or are you already looking to what you want next. Do you listen to people or are you already thinking of a retort in your head. Do you look them in the eyes when you talk to people of do you have your head in a phone. Do you talk to people that are "below you" like they are or do you treat them as a person on the same level. I guess what I am trying to say here is that yes work towards your goals and make it happen but don't believe the hype that you have to step on other people to make it. You can make it and still be a good person but then again maybe some people don't want to be good people they just want money and power....

The outdoors 7/24/12

    This past weekend I went to a cabin with a good buddy of mine for his bachelor party with a group of guys. The cabin we got was great and it had a hot tub a nice loft and a grill which is most important when spending time with that number of dudes. We brought way too food which is never a bad thing and I think we only got close to running out of beer after crushing a lot of it. It was a great weekend


    In September my Brother and a couple buddies are coming out here to Seattle to visit me and when I talked to my brother today, he said just plan out whatever and he is in. Now last weekend we went up to Crystal Mt. and rode the gondola and walked around the Mt. for a while. It was awesome and you should try it this summer but my point is with all the great things there are here to offer in the Seattle area where do I take them? I would like to take them on a hike but they are only here for a few days so I don't won't to spend the whole time in a car. Maybe a sail around Elliot bay or a over on the lake side. I am not sure what all we will do but there is a ton of options in the great area. I also want to tell you guys that I like a bar more than most and parties but don't forget to get out there this summer and enjoy this great spot we live in the Northwest. Make a group outing like we did or just get lost in the woods then dominate the bar later that night. Its like my man Wiz says "Work hard, Play hard"

USA hoops 7/13/12

    So last weekend I went to Las Vegas to watch the UFC fight and it was awesome. I highly recommend if you can afford to go to Vegas on fight because it was a great time. Fight night in the city just has a different feel than any other place I have been. I am sure its because they are big fans of mine that the USA basketball team was in town the same weekend. I am sure Kobe heard about me being in town and told them we are going to Vegas for camp. Unfortunately I did not have time to hang out with those guys. Next time Kobe I promise.


    Last night was  watching the USA VS the Dominican Republic. I watched the game and it is awesome to watch all the best players from the NBA playing together and just kicking the crap out of people. Sometimes I forget how good they all are because they are playing against each other. I do look forward to seeing this team do some damage in the Olympics. I often wonder if football was a Olympic sport how that would go for the rest of the world. I don't really know of another part of the world except maybe Mexico and Canada but even with that we are so far ahead that no one could beat the USA in football. Now wouldn't it be crazy if the rest of the world caught up and got better than the USA in football? Oh wait that what it must be like for the English when it comes to soccer. Sorry chap
