Chicago. I was in my late twenties, I was just getting off work, hitting the coffee shop, I was having a crappy day.
I didnâ€™t have a girlfriend, my job sucked, my social life wasnâ€™t anything to write home about, I frankly had no idea what I was doing with my life.
Never mind, I told myself, I may not like my current situation, I can still radiate from within.
Instead of waiting to be hit by the light, I decided to become the light instead.
It was my decision.
It was also one of the happiest and most profound moments of my life.
To use a familiar tennis metaphor, youâ€™re spiritually better off once you teach yourself to always keep the ball inside your own court. Donâ€™t wait for the world to whack it to you. A-men.
