The Rise, Fall, & Rise again of LeBron James is something we can all learn from

June 22, 2012

It seems like you are either a pro-LeBron or anti-LeBron. Everyone has their reasons. But if you look at what LeBron has done the past two years, would we actually do things differently? Now “The Decision” was a little tough to take, but all he did was relocated to a new job in a new city. How many of us would do that if we really thought it was a better opportunity to succeed? He earned the right to leave. And for those who said he should have told Cleveland he was leaving, I ask you this question. How many of YOU have left a job with no notice? Or a few days notice? Some of us give the full two weeks and some of us do not. You know who you are. Since social media was not prevalent in 1996, it should be noted to Shaq did the same thing to Orlando.

So now that LeBron has won a championship, now what? Will the anti-LeBron people find something else to hate him for. If anything, we all should teach the rise & fall & rise of LeBron to our children. When you do good things you earn the right to do things (find another job=free agency), when you hurt people, there are consequences (The Decision, anti-LeBron, the social media stoning), a humbling experience (last years NBA Finals, the public mocking), re-dedication to your craft (winning the NBA MVP) and setting your goals high and never giving up (winning the championship). No other athlete in recent memory had the scrutiny and the pressure to win, and LeBron did it. If that is not something to teach our children about how life works, I don’t know what is. I will teach my son Devin about what LeBron did, and how he overcame everything to succeed when he is the right age to understand.

To the anti-LeBron region, when you hold a grudge, you only hurt yourself, not the person that you are angry with.

Hanging out with Alpha Kappa Alpha

June 22, 2012

Last night I attended a business mixer with Upsilon Alpha Omega chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. I had a blast. It is always good to meet other professionals in different fields. Mingling with the chapter and other vendors gave me a chance to tell them what I do, and how I can help them and their loves ones with their health. They were whispering about me all night because I had a x-ray of a woman in high heels, and of course I got their attention.

After explaining to them that I cannot get them to stop wearing high heels, but it is my responsibility as a doctor to show them what prolonged wearing of high heels can do to your ankles, joints in your feet and the low back. That brought out fun conversation. I know it is a “rite of passage” into womanhood, and the majority of women have probably been wearing heels since they were in their teens.

So I gave out lots of cards, and I exchanged cards. The event was very organized and fun. I look forward to working with the chapter again.

So recently at the office I have been wearing a white lab coat on a recommendation. And it has been a interesting response when I meet patients for the 1st time. Sometimes, the patient’s heart rate goes up, the old “white coat syndrome.” Sometimes they are looking at me with concern, assuming I am bringing bad news. So patients think the worst when they come and see me. So I try to put them at ease, I think it is working. Hard to say right now. But the wife & the staff like the coat, so that counts..

Let’s try this out…

Good afternoon! This is my 1st official post! Everyone has told me that I need to blog, so I am going to try it out. Not sure what I should be blogging about, but I will blog about things that ar on my mind, and that are important to me. I’m sure I will mention something about chiropractic, my family, xbox360, or football. Let’s go down the rabbit hole! #chiroami
