“Every morning we are born again. What we do today is what matters most.” — Siddhārtha Gautama
I think we’ve all hit a point in our lives when we realize that our life isn’t the way we want it to be.
Have you? Have you ever wondered, “what am I doing with my life?”
Usually this happens because we coast through some parts of our life, and without realizing it, end up in situations that leave us feeling unsatisfied.
I’m not talking about depression (though this can turn into depression). The feeling is more like a lack of excitement about what you’re doing with your life that manifests itself as a strong dissatisfaction. Life becomes stale. You just feel like your wasting your time, like there are better things out there for you that you just haven’t found. You don’t really know what these things are or how to get them, but you know they exist.
The problem is that you’re afraid to shake things up because you don’t want to ruin what you already have for something that’s unknown.
The Roller Coaster of Life
Life happens…fast (especially in a haze of drinking and partying that is college). And when times are good, you can’t imagine living any other way. You feel like you’ve figured it out, but eventually good times turn to bad times for no particular reason. It’s because we live in a world of constant change. Life is a roller coaster.
The key to living life is embracing this concept of constant change. It’s knowing that good times are fleeting and so are bad. It’s learning how to appreciate the good times without becoming attached to them and being able to learn from the bad times without getting discouraged. It’s about being comfortable with change and being okay with reinventing yourself if you need to.

A quick glance at our gallery of some of history’s gnarliest surgical tools will definitely make you thankful for just how far our industry has progressed throughout time. Browse through images and descriptions of surgical tools dating as far back as the 1600′s – a time when surgery was definitely not for the squeamish.
You might think your HMO plan is scary, but at least it doesn’t use these vintage surgical instruments…hopefully.
Amputation Knife (1700s) Knives used for amputations during the 18th century were typically curved, because surgeons tended to make a circular cut through the skin and muscle before the bone was cut with a saw. By the 1800s, straight knives became more popular because they made it easier to leave a flap of skin that could be used to cover the exposed stump.
I get that it's boring to give the MVP to the same guy year after year, but LeBron is - without a doubt - the best andmost valuable player to any team.
Look at the Cavs before, during, after, then during LeBron again. Lottery team to perennial playoff contender back to lottery team and back again. All because one guy wasn't there anymore.
You could put LeBron on the absolute worst team in the league every year and he would get them to the playoffs. That's what he does, that's who he is. The Most Valuable Player to any team in the NBA.
When Mozgov forgot how to play basketball this year, LeBron carried the weight. When Love forgot to show up for the Finals, LeBron carried him too. The man is an absolute freak of nature, a basketball savant, and a one-of-a-kind talent that we'll probably never see again, like Jordan or Magic or Wilt.
I'm not ready to declare him GOAT (despite my obvious bias) because Jordan was a goddamn machine out there. You wouldn't see Jordan wearing a frog-tea hat or talking shit about the "haters" on social media, Jordan would shut them up on the court then blow $50k in five minutes on the blackjack table while banging your girlfriend in front of you.That's who Jordan was - an animal, an absolutely ice-cold killing machine - and LeBron isn't that same guy. LeBron is nice, he wants to be friends with his competitors off-court, and that's fine too.
Kobe was Jordan Lite. LeBron isn't anything Lite, he's LeBron Raymone James, and he is now and always will be the best player to ever don the Cleveland Cavalier uniform.
And for that, and this title, he's my unanimous MVP.
