My Life

Most people see me as a pessimist. I can see why they do but, I wonder if they really know me or if I just hide my optimism, because when things don't quite work out, I am crushed by what I didn't see, don't see or refuse to see coming. Most people that know me, think that I am on top of the world, and I am. Sometimes the world is sideways or upside down.

I know me, and I know that I am best suited to a job that is the same every day. A life that is without mountains and valleys. Yet, I work in an industry where every day it is a different challenge. I work in an industry where you are only as good as your last job. I live a life that is a complete contradiction to where I am comfortable. I live.

So, I deal with life in different ways. So good and some not so much.

I am a closet optimist. If you are my friend, you already know this.


  1. Uh, duh! You get your hopes up about Minnesota baseball every year.

  2. "life that is without mountains and valleys"

    It is far better to live life at a constant "7" than to experience many 9's, 10's, 1's and 2's.
