This past weekend I went to Texas to attend my youngest brother's graduation from the Air Force.
For the longest, a few of us in the family (as well as my brother) had no idea what he would do with himself. I always knew I would be involved in music, my other brother would be in the government, my other sister would be in music, and the youngest sister was too young to know or even have a idea. Jason has always been, for the lack of a better phrase, a leaf in the wind.
As Jason walked around his base and interacted with other Airmen, I saw someone who was comfortable with who he was, in a place of understanding, belonging, and purpose. Seeing my younger brother in such a positive place was so impactful that for a moment, I wanted to join the Airforce!
I realized that what he found was peace. Peace in his career, life, and within himself. He did not question what he was, he knew what he wanted, and he went for it no matter the hurdles.
Because of him I have a renewed outlook on my career and what I am meant to do. Moving forward, I want to strive to come into the peace and power he gracefully displayed. I want to grow up to be like my little bro.
...and I encourage you all to do the same.
