Cosmic Cow Pie: Connecting the Dots

What is your passion?  Do you practice?

This young man was interviewed for research for a middle school work book where parents and kids can discuss future plans. His dedication to a personal direction was an inspiration.

Declan said his plan A was to be an ocean photographer but because of the economy he was not sure if he could go to college so his plan B was to be a professional unicycle rider because that is his passion.

I was blown away by this 5th grader talking about how the economy could effect his future plans but he was prepared to do something else if his dream did not come through for work! What an eye opener on kids and how the world changes are affecting the way they think.

Declan started riding his dad's unicycle to school in 3rd grade.  Now he rides it to the store to pick up things for his mom.  The gym teacher saw Declan's passion and set up a special time for him to try and ride the 5 ft. unicycle after school.  She has also allowed him to learn on the 1 ft unicycle which is actually harder to ride than the large one!

Declan's passion is to perfect his unicycle riding and he works at it! 

What is your passion?  Are you practicing?
