Planning for the Future

Chris Borland (age 24) recently announced his retirement from football.

I don’t mean to beat a dead horse, but to me it’s uplifting when somebody has the balls to do something that can seem like a crazy idea, but in the big picture will benefit themselves, their family and even their place of work.

We can all take a step back and be more like Chris Borland, and obviously I'm not talking just about football. There’s so many things we do in our daily lives that aren’t necessarily good for us. Have you ever considered what may be best for you?

The three-hour commute for an extra acre of land, working two jobs to have a second car. Are things like that worth it? Does it make sense to sacrifice your health, your time with your family or anything else for something superficial?

I thought The Players’ Tribune article by Baltimore Ravens lineman John Urschel captured the essence of Chris Borland’s decision perfectly. It is something to take a lesson from.

John Urschel offered a unique perspective on the recent retirement of 24-year-old linebacker Chris Borland.

If you’re a parent, this is real. Think twice about having your kid play football. For yourself, think about the things you could stop doing on a day-to-day business that would improve your life.

    Thank you so much DOCTOR ODUNGA for making my ex boyfriend come back to me. I am writing this wonderful testimony in respect of this man. He made all my wishes come true. My boyfriend and I dated for more than 3 years and although we had had so many quarrels we never thought of a break up. One day, he called me over the phone telling me how he is tired of the relationship and cannot see anywhere that we are heading to. Months passed and my boyfriend did not contact me anymore and I did not hear from him anymore and his cell phone was disconnected. I knew I needed to seek help because of the love I have for him. I contacted this great spell caster because i have never contacted anyone before and i tell you that after a week of contact, my ex boyfriend called me and asked to see me and the next morning, he wore a ring on my finger. I am very happy because I am soon going to be a married girl with the help of this great spell caster. I promised to manifest your works to everyone and please contact this man to help you

    Email: OR contact him on WhatsApp +2348167159012.
