I received a phone call today. Our last day in Miami. A most fateful day I assume. I don’t usually get too philosophical on this blog because I don’t think about it. There’s the hassle, the game, my family and that’s all I talk about. But let’s talk about Fate for a minute.
When we talk about fate a lot of people talk some hand of god, stars aligning type fate. But I usually think that these moments are merely a coincidence. Things happen, and we live through all of these things happening. But It’s just such a funny and peculiar thought. I never thought that I could believe in =something such as fate until a day like today.
There we are on the beach for one last time because Orlando has crap beaches. I received that phone call I was telling you about. From a place called MDM commercial. I didn’t think anything of it because it’s just read like an advertisement or something.
At first, the person asks me if I would like to hear their promotion on commercial ice makers, and then I say that they called me. They told asked my name; I said it was Jet, and they knew what was up. They redirected me to a hospital service nearby. Apparently, nobody but the salesperson in this hospital had it.
So when they call me and tell me that my father has passed on. It kind of sticks with me for a second. I felt like an island. I was one with the sand and the water and all slipped away from me. I was aware that my family was next to me. But I wasn’t aware of when I walked into the water or when I started treading water. Or how I can’t swim too well.
I wasn’t aware of anything until I woke up to some guy asking me if I could hear him. I wasn’t prepared for any of this. I don’t know if I will ever be prepared for something like this. But, I know what I must do now. I must stay together for my family and focus on their development. I need to help my mom get back in school and help my sister grow into the great woman she’s meant tao be.
It is awful when things like this are what kick you into gear. But when you’re in gear you’re in gear. I don’t know if I’m going to keep doing this blog or for how long I would want to do it, but I know that as of right now. I’m hanging up my chain for right now. IF you need me, truly need me, ask yourself whether or not it’s a good idea to message me. I will respond if you truly need me but for the most part, I ask that you respect that you leave me alone. I showed you the respect by offering you a good bye, or a temporary placeholding statement. But as of right now. I do not want to be contacted. I need to be alone and focus on me. Bye.
