Happy New Year!


Well it's time to kick off 2009!!

2008 was a hell of a year personally. I reached a lot of goals that I had set for myself for the year. Good thing is, I didn't reach ALL of them. I can roll some of those goals over for '09.

Hopefully I can make 2009 way better than 2008 personally and professionally.

2008 brought me: 2 National Championships, an Olympic Medal, fast times, a Black man as President and last but not least, a division title for my Miami Dolphins!

It's going to be hard to top that, but I believe I can.

Let's set some goals for ourselves and stick to them. The main one should be to keep your haters happy. Keep getting your seven laughs in on them because you really know why they're mad!! LOL.

Here-Here ... My continuous goal is to be a better person. I, too, had a great 2008, but admittingly enough there weren't too many "personal" goals achieved so I'm planning to dedicate more time and effort to me and my happiness. Happy New Year! CHEERS!

Here's to appreciating what we've accomplished without resting on our laurels. I intend to live love even more this year.

I hope your New Year has been better than mine David. Happy New Year, David. I have been going through real tough times lately with my health and personally. It all started on Dec 29 when I got my kidney stones again and it took about 5 hours to pass the kidney stones with the worst pain a man can have. I hope you or anybody you know NEVER has to go through this physical type of pain. Then a snowball effect occured and my health from the dystonia and the flu etc. occurred. An absolute nightmare and some people treated me like crap and a piece of garbage and abandoned me. I need my friends and family support right now. I had a good talk with my parents and they fully support me and another dear friend of mine, Sally, she is like a 2nd grandmother to me, has been so wonderful to me. Unfortunately, the haters got to me and disrespected me and treated me like a piece of garbage. I guess somehow I will have to get the last laugh and just stay as positive as I can.

I wanted to thank you for your support when I told you I had dystonia back at the end of August 2008. I will always remember you telling me that you were glad to lend a helping hand through my bad days and that my post really touched you a bit. I was honored to touch your life. It was so great because I remember you beating Robles the next day I believe so I was so excited that I could be an inspiration to you. This will always be one of my favorite moments from 2008. It is really awesome that you are familar with dystonia so you have some sort of a clue what I go through. I can count on 1 hand the number of people who have heard of dystonia when I told them that I have dystonia. Most people have never heard of dystonia so they have no clue what I go through and I never leave the house on my really bad days so nobody sees me at my worst. People only see me when I am at my best so they have no clue what I go through from day to day. People would be shocked if they saw me at my worst. The thing that really hurts me the most is that when I tell some people what I have how they treat me like a piece of garbage and disrespect me like I am an absolute nothing and that is what hurts the most especially since most of them do not know what dystonia is anyway. So many people do not want to be bothered with people with any bad health condition or disease. This really makes me sad.
Thank you again ,David, for accepting me for who I am and showing me why you are one of the best persons in this world.Thank you for allowing me the space on your comments blog to share my thoughts because it is such great therapy for me. Just typing this message to you has helped me so much. I am just glad I finally have some energy to type after a 2 week absence on your blog. You have been one of my big lifesavers in 2008 and I sure need you to be one of my big lifesavers in 2009. I want to be there for you as much as I can in 2009 because I know you can be the best 110m hurdler in the world and you can reach your goal of 12.85, as well as, all of your personal life goals. I really want to be a big inspiration to you in 2009 because it will really help me through the tough times like I am having now. Thank you for sharing your life and beautiful pictures with us all on this blog. Your blog is a must read for me and I can not live without your incredible, amazing, funny , inspirational, loving , caring, intelligent blog. You are so amazing and you are King David. Please say a special prayer for me and hopefully by the Grace of God somehow I will be feeling well enough physically and emotionally to see you perform live in person on the track in Gainesville on the 24th. That would make me so happy. My thoughts and prayers are with you always!!!! Take care and God Bless!!!!
