Sometimes you feel like you’re batting a thousand, and sometimes you just don’t.
I’m watching The Biggest Loser as I write this. Well sort of watching, it’s more in my sideline view. Those people are seriously changing their lives. 160 pounds lost and more? I mean wow. They have a team and millions of eyeballs motivating them to succeed and the big money prize for the winner doesn’t hurt.
But they themselves are making it happen.
I also watched the State of the Union address tonight. I cried at the President’s introduction of Army Ranger Cory Remsburg, a man who fought for his country and who on his 10th deployment (TEN!??!) was nearly killed by a massive roadside bomb in Afghanistan.
Tonight he was celebrated by President Obama and a 3 minute standing ovation from both sides of the divided aisle.
