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.
