The next morning, my Dad, God love him, forwarded me two Craigslist ads for paralegal positions. Coffee cup in hand, Office Space-ing a copier with my slow-pitch softball bat came to mind. But, I assumed my Dad’s “get some sense” emails would peter out like Jonathan Taylor Thomas’ acting career. I assumed. Rather, it took a strong, yet polite text message to convince my Dad I would rather stick shoots of bamboo up my fingernails than file a demurrer with the San Diego Superior Court.

But, realizing your dream, finding happy, is entirely contingent upon whether or not you want to try. Many people seek an easy way to finding true success and happiness. But there is no easy path. There is, however, a right one.
