Concentration in the Face of Disappointment

I’m almost embarrassed to post about this, but what the heck…

Technically, this is day two and as a grieving Seahawks fan, sitting this morning came as a wonderful relief. I worked in our operations center during the game and sat with guys who were far more devastated than I when that last play ended in disaster. For me, there was a momentary sense of sadness but that was immediately followed by a wash of gratefulness – an acknowledgment that while disappointment was inevitable it was not the end of the world. And yes, while it is a sad cliche, it is just a game. Sitting this morning reminded me how simply accessible ‘real happiness’ is because it’s really only as far as my heart.

In the meantime, here are our fur children celebrating the Seahawks despite the loss.IMG_2627
