🖊 It’s been years since someone asked me to autograph something.
.
I used to get asked every week when I was an athlete. In the beginning, it made me feel important, valued and loved. ❤️
.
Overtime, it honestly, just got annoying. I could barely go anywhere in public without someone wanting to talk about sports.
.
😢 Then I got I hurt and an emergency back surgery ended my career.
.
😔 Suddenly no one wanted an autograph, and when people wanted to talk 🏈 , it brought me to tears because I was no longer an athlete.
.
💥 What was once annoying, became something I wish I had in my life again.
.
Lessons learned:
1️⃣ DON’T TAKE ANYTHING FOR GRANTED. Be grateful for what and who you have no matter how annoying, frustrating or challenging it may be.
2️⃣God has a way of redeeming your pain. What was a moment of failure and depression in my life has become an Amazon best-selling 📖.

👉🏾 Go grab the book for you an a friend. Link in bio. 😃
