While hiking in Big Bend, my new year’s resolution came to me: Find humor in difficult situations (or another way to say to think positive or be positive). There are times when my seriousness gets the better of me and I make situations difficult or trying when they need not be. Sometimes Mike bears the brunt of these times and with his lighter side, we just purely clash during those moments. Since I am quite fond of Mike’s lighter side, I have an incentive for keeping the atmosphere light and fun. Yesterday on the hike I was reminded of this and that is when the resolution came to me.
