Buka Filifili: Kaua e hae i te Bench

Whakatangi noa ahau Varsity poitūkohu i roto i te kura nui. Ko te he tauākī rawa pono (te kore koe e faahepo ahau ki te tautuhi i te kupu tākaro). haere ahau i te kura iti tūmataiti, a, ki te he koe i te matua ka koe he wahi i runga i te rōpū Varsity. aroha ahau te kēmu o te poitūkohu, engari ahau te rota pai i matakitaki i te reira i te tākaro i te reira e ahau. Ka taea e ahau whiu kaitākaro, ka ngangara "me piri!"I kaitautoko ki katoa-whetu pūkenga. Ko e te tae noa ki haere te reira. Toku kura i tenei tikanga ke e pā ana ki te mau te tākaro hākinakina i roto i te tikanga ki te paetahi, ahakoa, na i takoha ahau ki te hāngai ake, ka whakairi i toku upoko i roto i te whakama nga po Rāmere.

i ki tonu hoki kēmu kāinga tonu nga turanga. whakakitea mātua oaoa me ngā ākonga-tokomaha o ratou hoa o mine- ake ki te tautoko i te rōpū. Ko e me'a fakamamahí, ratou pea hanga kia rite ki te nui o te taa-i roto i te kēmu rite i ahau. e mawhiti ahau ki te bleachers i wa wa ki, he aha te iwi katoa i whakaaro, tautautefito ki toku papa. whakaaro ahau ite ia i rua o tatou tika ki reira ki te mataara, engari tupu ahau ki te whai i te nohoanga pai.

Te wa anake mau ahau i hanga te reira ki te papa ko i te mutunga rawa o te kēmu-koutou e matau, ina hoatu e ratou i roto i nga takatu ite ratou kino hoki. Ahau rite ki te korero ki ahau e ratou ora ahau mo te hunga hēkona whakamutunga kia taea e ahau mau i te win. Rite ruia e matou ringa ki te tērā tīma i muri i te wheowheo whakamutunga, Ua ite e ahau kia rite ki nga kaitākaro i snickering roto, no ratou titiro ki ahau, ka mea, "Kēmu pai."

A, no te ahau puta i te rūma i muri toku ua, tangata hiahia te pikitia ki ahau. Tetahi o nga tamariki kura waenga titiro ake ki ahau. Tangata i runga i rānei rōpū hae ahau. He aha? No te mea ko ahau atu Spike Lee atu Michael Horano. Ko ahau te mea powhiriwhiri mau he poraka. ko ahau te taata e kore nei i hanga te reira ki te kēmu, me te tangata hae te benchwarmer.

KIMI I TE GAME

e kore e taea e ahau ake mahara tētahi pihinga he ou'a rangi haavarevare, me te karanga i roto i te ingoa o te kaitākaro tūranga unknown. He ngaio tonu aua eé, engari ki te hiahia koutou koutou taea hokohoko wahi ki te kaitākaro poitūkohu, te reira te tikanga i te timata i, te taata nei te mea i roto i reira i te matamata-atu ki te wheowheo whakamutunga. E kore e wareware koe ka whakawhiti ringa Horano i waenganui ranei ka patua Ray Allen e toru i te wheowheo. Te hunga ko te tāne e hiahia ana koe ki te kia. kei ratou i roto i te mahi i aua taime matua, e kore e spectating noa. Ko mo etahi take mahi tatou i te ritenga atu, ina tae mai te reira ki te ora. hiahia ana te katoa ki te waiho i te benchwarmer.

He aha te tikanga e ahau i taua? Ki te whakakitea ake koe ki runga ki te wānanga kāreti angamaheni, ka uiui ngā ākonga e pā ana ki o ratou whāinga mo te wāhanga, kihai koutou i pai ki te whakarongo nui e pā ana ki ora mo te Kingi. Hiahia rongo koutou atu e pā fun whakaarokore atu tākaro he wāhi i roto i te aamu rahi. Pea ara hiahia rongo koutou etahi 7:00 a.m. arorau. Ahau pai ki te amo hiahia manako ki a koutou rite urupare i te kura nui te whare tari ranei ahau. whai katoa o tatou whāinga me holi, engari e kore e he tonu te Atua i roto ia ratou.

Te ti'aturi nei e ahau e kore koutou e tango ki ta au mea ahau ano te whakatau he haavâ. e kore ahau te fakaanga kiriata trashing te whakakapi; ahau he kaiwhakaari tautoko e ngana ana ki te tiki i toku rārangi tika rawa. Hiahia ahau te takoto ki te mea ahau e whai ake tonu mea a Ihu fakamānako. Matau e kore tonu ite tika.

mahara ahau he wa, hohoro i muri piri ahau te tokotoko i toku siasí, ia raua e haere oku hoa katoa ki te mahi i te hakari music maere. Ua hinaaro ahau ki reira na kino, otiia kihai i taea e ahau kia te reira no te mea ka hinga te reira i roto i te wiki tuatahi o toku mahi hou. i ahau ki te whawhai ki te hae i roto i toku ngakau. Rawa, no te kitenga e ahau ratou tuku pikitia ipurangi o ratou wheako mīharo.

I te tahi taime ite tatou e ara ki te ora. E mea ohie ia e hae ia vetahi, tautautefito ki he taimi e mahi ratou i te tahi mea nui rite oku hoa i te mahi. Otira ahakoa ka mohio tatou e ora te iwi he, te tahi mau taime e ite tatou i tatou hiahia ki te uru atu ratou. Na ka hanga e whai ake nei e Ihu ongo'i rite te pae tangohia i roto o te kēmu, e kore hoko subbed i roto i. Ko te aha e tatou e hae ia vetahi me amo e ngaro tatou i roto i runga i te tahi mea?

AHA KAUA Whakaaro matou WE e ngaro I?

Kanohi kino

Ko tētahi o to tatou mau fifi ko e taea kite anake tatou te mea te tika i roto i te mua o tatou. mahue tatou te pikitia nui. te reira rite te kāmera, ina ko nga mea i roto i te mua i roto i te arotahi me te mea katoa i muri he tia. E ti'a ia tatou ki te whakarite i to tatou arotahi kia ka meinga te pikitia katoa mārama.

He kore te he tangata i runga i tenei whenua e kore e uaua ki te kite mārama. te reira tetahi o nga hopearaa o to tatou ngakau hara. Otira ka maka koutou taiohi ki te whārite, tāpiri reira ki runga ki te kino. -Tau kotahi-pakeke uaua ki te haere pai, a e rua tekau- somethings uaua ki te kite i te pai.

te reira e kore e maere. te reira tuhaa o te mea te auraa ia riro kuao i roto i te ao hinga. kua poto to tatou oraraa, a kua kite anake tatou kia nui. te uaua ki te whakaaro i te puzzle katoa ina kua kite koutou toru nga wahi anake. E kore tenei tikanga e ti'a ia tatou whiua tatou i roto i te whakama; engari te auraa e riro tatou mōhio, no te mea shortsightedness hara taea arahi ki te kino.

Kua whakamatau ake koutou peia i roto i te snowstorm? Te Kirihimete i muri i whanau toku tamaiti tuatahi i, he snowstorm whakamataku patua rite toku wahine, a peia hoki e ahau ki a DC i Pittsburgh. kaha te hukarere te tupohehia ki to tatou SUV ka hinga na nohopuku e kore i taea e te wipers motokā pupuri ki reira ake. tahuri oku pongaponga ma rite ahau nervously te matapouri ki nga wira; ite ahau ko nga ora o taku wahine me te tama i roto i oku ringa.

ko ahau kukū. taea anake e kite ahau i te torutoru inihi i roto i mua o toku mata, na e ahau mooni kihai i matau ki te wahi i haere ahau. kahore ahau i mohio he aha i mua, a ahau tika i ki tumanako e katoa te mahi i te reira i roto i. E kore te he mana'o pai. kahore ahau i kite, ki te reira ko mutu he motokā mua ranei he tangata horoia atu ana matapihi i roto i te mutu-ka haere-waka.

Kua kore noa whakahuatia e ahau nga rori slick ano. Patu auraa o koutou frein kitea ia koutou motokā rite te koati mau tōkena i runga i te papa pereki. Ka taea e koe mahino aha ko reira toku puku iti rawa tino ake. ko ahau atarua, me te i roto i te wahi pahekeheke.

Kua whakaaro ake koutou e pā ana ki te pehea kino shortsightedness taea e i roto i to tatou oraraa? Ki te tatou anake whakatau i runga i te mea te tika i roto i te mua o tatou, e herea tatou ki te rere ki te ati. nui rawa o tatou e tamata i te ora i to tatou oraraa ki kore whakaaro mo te mea e tupu i muri mai.

Haurangi i te rōpū kia titiro rite te whakaaro pai i roto i te taime, engari e whakaiti ana te reira i te Atua, me te arata'i ki whakataunga poauau. Moe ki to koutou hoa kaumeá ranei kia titiro rite te win i roto i te taime, engari e ahua o te fafale i kore auraa ki kia koa, motu ke i te uniana ahurei o te faaipoiporaa.

ka ruku matou i roto i ki enei momo o whakatau atu rite haere tatou i roto i te pukapuka, engari te wāhi ko te, to tatou ki te whakaaro pikitia nui. Nga whakatau hanga tatou ko te wahi iti o te puzzle nui. A i waho titiro i te pikitia nui mō te tohutoro, ka tuu tatou i te mongamonga hē wa katoa. te reira fakamamahi ki te poihere i te taime i roto i te wa neke atu i te ora katoa.

    I am a big music fan of yours but I had no idea you could write so good. May God keep bless you> Btw I am from Suriname. Bless up

    The last sentence got me. Its tragic to treasure a moment in time more than an entire lifetime. The former is almost always a product of envying where otheres are in life. Let’s thank God for where we are. There’s a reason why we are there. Heoi, we need to acknowledge him through it all.

    Trip Lee, I lost my way along my Journey serving the lord. I grew up a Christian, but moved away from its teachings. It wasn’t until I listened to your Good Life album and couple of sermons of youtube that steered me back in the direction of the Lord. I want to say thank you my brotha.

    Dearest Trip. A fine leader. Your story reminded me of the beauty I’ve found in my relationship with Jesus and how important the tiny decisions will continue to frame my destiny. We are destined to be a reflection of Royal Jesus. May every reader find the treasures in this royal treasure box called RISE. Prayers all the way from Cape Town, South Africa.
