Some call it Mamba Mentality but others call it a desire within ourselves to be better each and every day , to keep pursuing and chasing our goals. Kobe Bryant exemplified that for people in Los Angeles, California and the world beyond. He was bigger than basketball and people saw how tenacious he was on the court but was a sweet, kind, and caring loving soul with his friends and family. He was never outworked by the people he met. People loved that energy about Kobe. He would always give his 110% of work whatever he was doing and was not satisfied until he put that 110% in. Kobe idolized many around the globe and even myself. Life is how you treat it and the better you're to it, you can get a better outcome than you have expected. That's not always the case and it teaches us all a lesson about treating the people close to you with love and respect. Life is too short to be unhappy with people that make you sad or angry. Leave those grudges behind and learn to forget about them. What's the point of being angry and having so much hatred built up for a person that you may never see again? There's no point in being mad. Leave it in the past and start over. Grieving over deaths like this make you think how lucky you're to be on this planet because you never know when your time is up. Kobe Bryant, you were an inspiration to us all and everyone around you. I know you're looking down smiling at everyone and telling us to work even harder and that is exactly what I need to start doing. Thank you for all the memories Kobe Bryant, you will never be forgotten and rest in peace to everyone else who lost their lives on the helicopter. Rest in peace to Kobe Bryant, Gianna Bryant, Payton Chester, Alyssa Altobelli, Keri Altobelli, Christina Mauser, John Altobelli, and pilot, Ara Zobayan. You will all be dearly missed and will forever be in our hearts. This one is for you guys.
