Little Man is the reason I exist. He is my only son. My only child. He is my family and my purpose. He is the reason I wake in the morning and what I think about when I lay down to rest.
I’m concerned about little man and root for him in his endeavors. From the moment of his birth until today, he has been special and unique. I’ve watched Little man endure. Overcoming conflict, abrupt change, unforeseen consequences in life. Thank God he is healthy growing to become a remarkable young man. He is maturing fine at a rapid pace.
Little Man stands at about 5 feet 9 inches tall weighing in at 135 lbs. He’s very athletic practicing hockey, golf and motocross. He’s played hockey since he was seven reaching a point he now wants to shift focus on motocross. He’s broken his wrist twice in hockey. He’s smart, intelligent with an incredible sense of humor. He knows how to play team sports and work with a team. He’s a natural leader of others who doesn’t put up with bullies yet knows how to push the uninspired. He’s experienced as a captain and starting center of his hockey team. He has played football, lacrosse, basketball, baseball, hockey, golf and motocross. With many talents, Little man is skilled in many ways. He loves to hunt and fish and the outdoors. He is active, has endurance and runs well. He has natural strength where he is lean growing fast. He must never forget his strengths are his endurance and stamina.
Little man works hard. He gets frustrated, enlightened, motivated and turned off. He’s easily set off to pursue something new and challenging. Working very hard at everything he does, Little Man has passion and discipline. He works hard and plays hard. He can take things serious one moment and shift to lighten the mood.
Little man loves motorcycles. He enjoys video games, movies and music. He likes old TV shows. He grew up watching A full house. He can play back verbatim funny lines from movies and commercials. Commercials are what he really enjoys. Little man enjoys watching sports especially hunting. He’s aware of what is current even enjoys history. He studies the things he enjoys. He gets it. He knows how to find something he likes. Research and study it. Find the right tools to do it. Learn about it. Practice, practice, practice what he loves. Finally, go for what he loves. Be passionate about what he loves. That is what I believe my son has learned and tries to lead his life. You can see it in how he carries himself and handles situations. Even what he pursues.
Little Man does very well in academics and school. He’s been raised in a unique way where he lived a traditional life up to 13 years old. Afterwards, he’s gone to school over the Internet. Bypassing so much resistance from his family and friends, his grades and his hockey skills improved. We’ve reached a level where we will attempt another semester online so he can shift focus on motocross. The idea is to build his academics around his pursuits and what appears his passion. Little man knows what he wants and he’s going after it. That is all I ask of him. I ask that he search for that thing that wakes him in the morning and what carries with him to sleep following him into his dreams. It’s called passion. What drives oneself to pursue a life of their choosing. My son will become a success at whatever he sets his mind to.
