I am off to see my niece (Dakota) play in a regional Soccer match. She is 17 years old and has been playing since she was 5. Is she good? You bet. We are talking scholarship good. She will probably continue to play in college and perhaps who knows maybe go professional.
Which gets us back to what we have been blogging about this week. Sticking with what you love. Staying with your passion. Not being distracted by the outside. Could she have quit playing? The real answer is no. You see she loves to participate in the game. All her friends are on the team. Her life is centered on what she loves.
She has other interests of course but to her it is Soccer that defines her and she is good with that. Whether this is her last game or she continues to State finals is not important.
In my book she will always be a winner. Peace.
