What in the world is wrong with Shaquille O'Neil??? He's clearly got a case of TigerWoodsitis! Caught and busted for cheating with another NBA ballers fiance', his wife Shaunie filed for divorce.... again.... for the 2nd time in 2 years. But now word is that not only was Shaq cheating with Gilbert Arena's wife-to-be who was his wife's friend (some friend) but he had a 5 year on again-off again affair with a model chick named Vanessa Lopez. Vanessa has enlistd the services of hollywood attorney Gloria Allred, who is also representing a few of Tigers indiscretions, to represent her in getting paid for claims of harrasement and who knows what else against Shaq. Ms. Lopez says in September she told Shaq she might be expecting and he supposedly lost it and harrased her and caused her emotional distress.
Ugggghhhhh...... question: why get married if you're not done "sewing your royal oats"? So much confusuion, pain, disrespect... for what??? Some booty??? What about loyalty, honesty, integrity and respect... not to mention the kids and the family unit? Why would Tiger, Shaq, or any cheaters in general jeapordize everything for nothing.... for those someones that just doesn't matter in the big pcture?
Seems to me like life is hard enough without adding extra drama. Perhaps these men, athletes think that intangible qualities, values and morals just don't matter when they've got enough money to play. At the end of the day, you gotta pay to play. Is it worth it?

Back from vacation... and what a wonderful break it was! It allowed me some time to reflect and look back on the year and the decade. The things I considered are what things I want to do that I didn't get to do, what things I want to do differntly/better and what things I should eliminate and not do at all anymore. That goes for people too... there comes a time when u realize who is really important in your life, who's not important anymore and who never was. The thing is though, that we discover the answers with time and experience.
I'm so grateful for the year... the good and bad, ups and downs, and joys and pains because with it comes priceless gifts of knowledge and growth.
The past provides so many tools to help in the future. So use them!
I plan to use all that and move forward armed with experiences, information and memories from last year to better help me flow in 2010. I hope the same for you! In fact, I wish your best day in 2009 be your worst in 2010... making each day better than the last!
