Well, I have been hopeful that 2017 would bring new experiences and it sure hasn’t disappointed so far! Today I ventured into Seattle for a Seahawks game along with my sister and brother-in-law(big thanks again for the ticket! 😄🙌🏼). As this was my first Seahawks game, I was told by my brother-in-law that I’d likely be deaf by the end of it and he wasn’t lying… Seahawks fans are unlike any I’ve ever come across. The volume of the crowd cheering is SO loud that it actually causes seismic activity in the stadium – crazy!! It’s pretty amazing to be in a venue like that and experience that kind of literal edge of your seat excitement.
Today’s experience brought something to mind for me…it’s so important in my opinion to collect moments and not things. How often are we spending money…sooo much money on material items that give such a temporary feeling of happiness until we must move onto the next item that can curb our need for more. I know I’m guilty of this sometimes..and we probably all are to a degree – we’re only human after all. And sure football tickets aren’t free, but for an evening such as this, I think in this case it’s worth every penny because you’re getting an unforgettable experience out of it.
So now as I sit in the backseat of my sister’s truck with ringing ears and rosy windburned cheeks, I realize that having moments like I had today that will leave lasting memories, being with my family, and having a freakin blast at an amazing sporting event is pretty unbeatable. 😊
