What is Reality?

Seriously?!?!? Sometimes I feel like people need to prioritize the things that are important in life. It is interesting how everyone is so focused on reality TV, what celebrity is cheating, which one is going to jail, and now Lebron leaving the Cavs. I don't know if it is the fact that I have gone through way too much lately to care about this, or if all of the sudden my world was rocked and now I see perspective on the important things in life.

Correct me if I am wrong, Lebron is still playing basketball right? It is not like he stopped like Michael Jordan did to try out a little baseball. He will still be playing, and the Cavs are not going anywhere either. So if you like Lebron, and you like the Cavs, GREAT, now you have two teams to watch. I do apologize to my mother and my Bean. My mom is absolutely in love with Lebron which in turn has made her fall in love with the entire Cavs team. She schedules her days around games during the basketball season, and looked forward to her Christmas gift of game tickets and a hotel stay in Cleveland every year. She has had so much going on in her life lately, and the Cavs WITH Lebron made her happy for a few hours at a time. And Bean has been a fan of both the Cavs and Lebron since she attended high school with him years ago. So I feel they actually may have a right to grieve. However, it is awfully sad to see people getting so upset they are burning jerseys in the streets of Cleveland. I like what Lebron said, "If the Cavs fired me, my family would not come and burn down the facilities."

He is being selfish, yes, and he has every right to be. It is his life, and he can live it the way he wants. He has a talent, and wants to win a championship. There is nothing wrong with that. I bet if everyone of these wayward Lebron fans were in his shoes they would do the same thing. That is one thing I have definitely learned in these past eleven weeks. Sometimes you have to be selfish. Sometimes you have to say to hell with what others think and to what others want, I need to do what is best for myself and my family. That is the same advice Lebron's mom gave him, and I am glad she did! She could have pressured him into staying in Cleveland and he probably would have done it, but obviously that is not what he wanted. He has been friends with Dwayne Wade for a long time, and he wants to play ball with him. Heck, I would want to do the same, I would want to go and play with my friend if I had the chance. Now Cleveland and everyone else is trying to make him feel bad and accuse him of the further downfall of Cleveland. That is not fair to him! No one should hold one man responsible for the fall of a whole city. The man is not God. They should be focusing on the amazing seven years he gave Cleveland.

My challenge to America, is instead of focusing on the stupid reality of everyone else, turn off the TV and make your own reality. It may stink at times, hurt at times, and may not be as action packed as Lebron's reality, but it is REAL life, and that is a beautiful thing.

The only thing that really concerns me with Lebron going to Miami, is what the heck am I going to get my mother for Christmas this year?!?!?
