|I want to be more like my brother, but this isn’t cutting it.|
|All set for the NFC Championship.|
I want to be more like my brother because he is absolutely the most optimistic person I know, and is a self-described “the glass is half full kind of guy”. And every day I read the newspaper, or listen to the evening news, I realize I need to be more like him. Several years ago when I moved to Japan and lost money on the sale of my house as the housing market was crashing, he was overjoyed I’d sold it at all, and had to reassure me that I’d be fine. Of course I would, but it was his optimism that helped the sting feel more like a little mosquito bite than the welt left from a bee sting. I needed his optimism to help me through.
The challenge comes when I have to temper optimism with reality, whether it’s taking on a new project, or when an organization I belong to wants to change direction, or heaven forbid, when I step on the scale. My brother is a wonderful guy though, and despite his occasional long rambling stories, I’m going to take a page from his book. And I’m optimistic I can make it!
