Ashley and I have a toddler, and another baby on the way. We have a mortgage, car payments, and a myriad of bills. It's easy to become so distracted by our responsibilities that we barely notice life as it passes us by. Sound familiar?
You are probably wondering; Hey, Negative Ned, where are you going with this? Well, a couple of weekends ago we went up to North Olmsted to check out a few of my nephew Alex's soccer games. Not surprisingly, I brought along my camera for some action shots. We had a great time at the game and I was truly impressed by the intensity with which the boys played their games. It wasn't until I got home and viewed the photos that I really grasped what we had seen. These are nine or ten year old boys faces showed how passionate they are about the game of soccer. It was just a meaningless game, but they left every bit of energy they had out on that field.
When was the last time, as adults, we cared that much about anything? I don't know about you, but I'm going to make an effort at viewing life more like a ten year old soccer player. Full of energy and passion for the game.
Check out the photos in the show, and tell me you aren't at least a little inspired!
PS It was wicked hot at that game, and Tommy wore out his cousin Ben playing soccer too. Their savior was a snocone. What's your favorite summer treat? Share it on our Facebook
