The day was a typical summer day - sunny, bright sky, and so much fun...you would think. Unfortunately, I was stuck working. I worked at a amusement park and wasn't really excited about working there that day but it had to be done anyway.
Well while I was working I had this huge family come up to me and ask to get their picture taken. So I took it and one of the guys of the group waited while the picture was printing out. I asked him where he was from and he said California. I have always wanted to go to California and get a good job and a nice place there. So I started talking to him about it.
After awhile of talking about my future and what I planned on doing his picture finished printing out and I gave it to him. He smiled at me gave me a huge tip and said "I'll see you in California one day." I told him you gave me way too much tip and he said "I know" and walked away. Even though it was simple it made me feel amazing. Those three words "see you there" is all it took to know that I am going to be there one day!
