…No, I have not been listening to this for about 20 minutes.

“Are you ready, Are you ready for this
Are you hanging on the edge of your seat”

That moment, the one where your feet hit the pavement with such determination, is an awakening.   In that instance, when you must make the choice between anger and absolute brilliance, well- that’s the one who shows you who you truly are.

A layoff, the end of a dream, a relationship crumbling, they all have a hidden blessing inside them, but only if you understand it for what it is: A chance to be great.  There are very few of these handed out and it’s always been my perception that those who faced the greatest hardships, were the luckiest of us all.  So when that moment comes- you remember this, and you turn that song up at 12:35am and you tell yourself, “I choose brilliance.”

“But I’m ready, yes I’m ready for you
I’m standing on my own two feet”
