My Journey to An Amazing Connection

Have you read my last blog? I hope you did.

Kobe Bryant just confirmed what I said last week. Have you seen how he has been playing lately? (poor Raptors). His team has its back against the wall and he is performing at a high level. It's do or die basically for the Lakers. Wow! Really impressing.

Enough with Basketball. If you don't stop me, I can go on and on with this sport. It is really a school of life. You see, I can't stop!.

Last week, we were celebrating the International Women's day. If you ask my opinion, we should celebrate the woman everyday. Here is why:

This coming March 16, our daughter will be nine months old. Time really flies. It has been one of the best nine months of my life.It is really a joy. I spend so much time with her that, every time that I go out, I can't wait to be home (don't get me wrong, I feel the same way about my wife as well lol).

Skylar is an early morning person like myself. As soon as she wakes up, I go in the room to get her so that my wife can get some extra sleep. I play with her, I feed her, I change her, and I make sure to turn on her favourite TV channel (yes, like her mom, she is a huge TV fan). I can see that she is really having fun until....her mom wakes up.

I don't know how these things work. As soon as she sees her mom, I quickly become a second thought for her (I don't think she even remembers that I am her dad). Her face shines with a wide smile, she is so excited that she cannot hold her emotions. She jumps up and down and she cannot wait to be in her mom's arm. And I am like: what about me girl? I have been playing with you for the last hour or so, now I mean nothing to you? My wife cannot even go in the other room. Skylar cries right away while I am holding her in my arms. Can you believe that?!

There is such an amazing connection between these two ladies that no matter what I do, I don't think I will reach this level with Skylar. Maybe time will tell. It is really a good thing to see.

That is why women should be respected, celebrated, loved and venerated daily. God gave them the power to create another human being (with our little help) and establish a connection with him or her that is really deep. And this goes both ways. The way my wife loves Skylar is out of this world. I am now number two in her life. Skylar comes first. It is a place that I have learned to embrace lol (like my old days on the bench in Basketball lol).

This reminds me that I have to call my mom lol

Way to go girls. You rock. As one of my favourite songs says, this is a man's world, but it wouldn't be nothing without a woman or a girl (I agree with you James Brown).

Moral of the story?
Do you want to have an amazing connection with the ladies in your life. Just wake up early to be with them and you will be forgotten as soon as they see their moms.

Always a pleasure

My Journey with Fidèle

It has been quite a few busy weeks that involved a round trip to Ottawa on Saturday and preaching during a Sunday church service (yes, I was surprised too when I was asked to do it). All this time I was thinking about what I would be writing about on this week’s blog. I had a vague idea, but I did not know how to formulate it.
That was until I received a message on Facebook from a friend asking me to speak at an upcoming event in January. The topic of my presentation would be “The Moment that Defined Your Life”. The person who sent me the invitation did not know that I had been thinking about the same topic days prior to her message.
It all started when I was at a Toronto Raptors game. I have been reporting on the games for almost two months now, but I am still in awe every time I am at the arena. I can’t believe this is happening to me. I have been in rooms with childhood idols, biggest stars of the game, coaches, reporters, you name it. And every time I am saying “wow”. The other day,…

My Journey with a man of faith

Many years ago, I heard a businessman say that if you don’t have a dream, be around dreamers. Now, I am going to add to his statement and say that if you don’t have faith, be around people of faith.
I met this gentleman over sixteen years ago when I first came to Canada. After a few months, we became roommates. It was very fun evenings among friends hearing and telling funny jokes. We didn’t know what we would become later, but I knew this guy was going somewhere. He was a devoted Christian man, playing music in two different churches. He had a picture in his room with a huge crowd on it and I knew he was meant to impact people’s lives. Little did I know I would be, many years later among the people who would be impacted by his life.
We went our separate ways but kept in touch. He later became a Pastor (and I was not surprised at all by that), and I attended his church a few times.
In 2013, I was going through one of the toughest moments of my life and I needed help. I didn’t know wh…

My Journey to the Book

It has been quite overwhelming the last few days
I shared the link to my book to a few friends and the response has been a shock to me. The support has been unbelievable. All the comments are quite similar to this message that I received from a friend who has been more than a brother to me. Those of us who know him back in the day, we call him Kissa.
He wrote:
Hello bro I finally got a chance to watch the video. And I have 2 conflicting reactions: 1) what a powerful and incredible story man. It is amazing. I would love to rush put in on my facebook and twitter account for everybody to learn from you. How can I pay to order an autographed book? 2) I am also angry against you man. I was supposed to be your brother and friend. You could have asked me for a little help. Instead of living the fight alone. I hope one of the lessons learned in your journey would also be: Know your friends In any case, bravo and can't tell how much I respect you and I am proud of you Cheers
This message gave m…
