Our amazing Seattle Seahawks are going to the Super Bowl this year! I love how the Hawks inspire people. There seems to be a common bond we all share right now. I know I am less hesitant to talk to strangers when we’re both wearing Hawks’ colors. I see people excited about a common goal, a shared experience. Even the media is showing more positive videos and stories about good deeds done at—and since—the NFC Championship game.
And I have to wonder. Why can’t it always be like this? Wouldn’t it be nice if we were always this way? And then I have to wonder some more…
Maybe it can.
Maybe it starts with ME!
Me, making a decision to be friendlier.
Me, deciding to perceive others as friendly and not as strangers.
Me, reaching beyond my comfort zone to connect with the people around me, instead of averting eyes and rushing through my day.
Hmm. Seahawks, you do inspire me to be a better me!
