Remembering Kobe Bryant's Life

The people all over the world are saddened by the loss of Kobe Bryant. His daughter Gianna was also among many who lost their lives on January 26, 2020. The amazing superstar athlete died instantly in a helicopter accident. He was a husband, father, and friend and he loved life; he lived life to the fullest. Especially, being the best at what he accomplished doing in his career as a Lakers basketball player.

He lived life as if every second, minute and hour counted towards what he wanted to accomplish before the unthinkable happens. Like trying to get the basketball in the hoop before the buzzer will go off. He couldn't wait to do anything he found interesting because he enjoyed trying to do different things. He didn’t limit himself and he didn’t act as if he couldn’t do anything. He didn't live to say, I should've I could've, but I didn't.

He was a competitor in life and he didn't mind trying hard to do what interests him. What he's done in life was so interesting to people. Besides, no matter what he was doing he smiled all the time. He looks as if he was a happy individual who didn't have any time for sadness. If he was sad he didn't look like he was. He also inspired so many young people who wanted to be just like him someday.

People around him seem to be drawn to his charismatic personality because he was likable. He didn't seem to have much of an attitude problem with people. If he was smiling, he would have the type of smile that seems contagious after seeing him smile.

Some people don't smile if they have to work every day. Even though, he worked hard almost every day of his life. He also loved keeping himself extremely busy. He tried to do everything he wanted to do or needed to do.

Kobe Tried Different Things in Life

For instance, at one point in his life, he tried acting and met Brandy. He acted on one of the episodes of Moesha in the nineties. He also tried to be a hip-hop artist but he didn’t seem to stick to rapping long and he was in Destiny's Child "Bug A Boo" music video. He loved being in front of the cameras and sometimes when being asked, he would speak in different languages. He sounds as if he was bilingual and knew a lot more than people even realized, but he knew diverse people who were around him. Also, he went to Boston College to take classes at some point in his life to further his education when he wanted to study.

However, he did meet a lovely young woman named Vanessa who caught his eye while she was working as a backup dancer. Kobe was on a music video set, he attended at the time when he was interested in rapping. They introduced themselves and they began dating soon after. He met his future wife between 1999-2002, and she’s been seen with Kobe ever since.

They went on to get married and the children came one after another. He has four girls who love their father dearly. He also considers himself a girl dad who loved having children. Still, his wife Vanessa wanted a boy more than he did. He was happy with his beautiful girls who were learning a lot from him, but if he had a boy he would be happy just the same.

His daughters all had the same smile that is shown in most of the photographs. His wife Vanessa was always a happy woman who loved her husband so much. Now, it's going to take some time to grieve over her husband's death. He was also a well-respected man who people loved working with.

Kobe Bryant and His Daughters

Furthermore, one of the greatest things he loved doing was spending a lot of time with his family. Kobe would go to see his daughters play basketball and volleyball, he was a supportive and devoted father. He will also take his daughters to see women who played basketball in the WNBA. So, he didn’t mind taking his daughters to see competitive women who played basketball too. There are many other things he did when he wasn’t playing with the Lakers.

Besides, he was a business mogul, also a writer with many books on Amazon, a producer, and an investor too. He was an intelligent man who knew a lot about his finances. So in time, he would've taught his daughter's about being responsible financially to help them with their future.

Therefore, in forty-one years, he did accomplish a lot and he had a lot more to do. He was just getting started after retirement. One of the greatest things he was going to continue to do was to be a good father and husband. He loved being a family man who will be missed by his family forever.

Kobe Motivated and Inspired the Youth

Also, watching him in the public eye showed so many young men that having a healthy loving relationship and being a good father figure is important in life. Although, no relationship is perfect, he would try to work through his issues. The youth today looked up to him and they learned a lot from watching him on television.

He showed people to just enjoy living life every day and doing so made a difference to people watching. Kobe Bryant will never be forgotten and will always be remembered by his family, teammates, and friends. It's going to take time to heal from what has happened to him and his daughter Gianna.
