16. July. 2019 || After coming to church my first Sunday back on the 30th of June I was asked if I would be able to take some time out and come speak to a few younger guys at the Enrichment Program being held & I agreed to come speak with them. Honestly felt good to just talk to them about what was instilled in me from a young age that allowed me to persevere throughout and land me where I am today. Spoke about staying involved in church, how the little things matter even if they don’t seem like they do at this stage in their lives, listen to the things people tell them because it can and will be useful in certain points in life, how sports are a great thing to want to be apart of but also to have backup plans in which will allow them to be successful, work hard in all areas of school and never be afraid to ask questions, told them to join other clubs outside of sports that will allow them to grow as young men (mentally), and left them with something I always preach ... “No One Can Be A Better YOU, Than YOUrself” letting them know to stand apart from the rest and be yourself even if nobody at first wants to follow you in the right but I rather them be doing right, then trying to be someone or something they are not and doing wrong. Hopefully something I said today will stick and be applied to their lives at some point. #doingmypart#givingbacktothecommunity#reachbackpullingforward
