House on The Beach
The opportunity to become a professional soccer player at the age of 19 has become a reality for me, but there are things that will keep me from taking that opportunity. After turning professional, I want to buy my parents a house to settle down in and spend the rest of their lives in. My parents have always been the biggest part of my life and it’s time I repay them for all they have done for me. That being said, my parents would rather me finish my education before chasing my dreams, in case a career ending injury were to occur, so they will have to wait a few years to receive their gift from me.
My goal in life is to give back to my parents for all the things they have done for me and all of the opportunities they have provided me with. As a result, it has become my personal mission to buy them a house that they can enjoy and grow old in. It will be a place of relaxation and escape from the real world and be open to all family and friends. It will be a place where only smiles and laughter are allowed, and happiness will prosper. I chose to get them a house in the future because it is going to be a place that will bring the family closer and a place that my parents will not have to worry about paying for. I can imagine it now: spending long days on the beach, then walking right into our beach side house, watching movies, and having home cooked meals together while watching the sunset over the ocean.
My plan relies on where mu professional career with soccer takes me and how much money I earn. I have been to Europe a few times to train with a professional team. I have worked with one of the best goalkeeping coaches in Denmark and been told that I have all of the tools to make it. If I wanted, I could leave after this year to play there and my mission to get the house for my parents would be accomplished within two years. Easy enough; leave school, play the sport I love, make enough to support myself, and be able to get my parents a beach house. Sounds like a plan, right? No. Not that easy. My parents want me to finish school before pursuing my dreams, so that I have something to fall back on if I were to get injured. There is no way that I would want to upset my parents, so I do not want to disobey their wishes. That being said, that means my dreams will have to be put on a back burner because I would rather make my parents happy.
My dreams of becoming a professional soccer player and buying my parents a house will have to be put on hold, so that I can finish my studies and make my parents happy. It is not the path that I would necessarily want to take, but for all of the things my parents have done for me, the least I can do is stay in school for a few more years.
