Happiness is… when where you are is exactly where you want to be.
This is a truth I learned while attempting to date my future wife, Alisha. I call it an attempt because no matter how hard I tried, I remained in the dreaded “friend zone” far longer than my ego could bear. After going out with half of the single women in Manhattan, the dating scene back in my hometown of Dallas/Fort Worth would be a cake walk, right?
Not only was I wrong, I was in for quite a lesson in patience & purpose. Being Alisha’s friend taught me to cherish the moment of now and be grateful for just enough. Isn’t that what happiness is all about?
Of course, it doesn’t hurt that in the end I got the girl. Cheers.
