I just experienced one of those moments where one can choose to watch someone struggle or do something about it.
As I sat drinking a mocha at Loil (some cool coffee spot in L.A.), I watched a black girl, who reminded me of my sisters, trying to force an old bike into the backseat of a new car.
She was forcing it every which way she could with no sunshine in sight.
So I interrupted my practice time, for a talk that I am doing on Monday, to help her.
In less than 3-minutes, we figured how to get the bike in the backseat. As we shut the door, her face lit up for more reasons than I probably know. And the best part is that she followed that smile with a little high five.
As I walked away I could feel that bolt of being “indispensable” in a moment that someone was in need.
Like Tony! Toni! Toné!, it feels good!
