Andrew and I went to @citifield
to see @deadandcompany
Friday night and it was magical. He got us tickets as part of my birthday gift (Megan’s Summer Tour 2018! A series of concerts all summer❤️...I know, he’s the best!) -
Admittedly, neither of us really know Dead & Company or @gratefuldead
at all but I was open to the experience. Remember, I didn’t know @johnmayer
a decade ago but ended up being a big fan after going to his concert (see previous post for that story.) I was hoping for a similar happy ending but it surpassed my expectations!
We arrived at our seats and I joked how terrified I was to be up so high. We were literally 4 rows from the last row so we were very high up!! The sun was setting and I kept thinking “if we were in a lower section we wouldn’t get this gorgeous view!” (Swipe to see) -
But then this woman approached us as the sun was almost completely set and explained she had 2 field level tickets she couldn’t use. She asked if we wanted them and of course we said yes!! So we rushed to the new seats and enjoyed our MUCH closer view!
All of this would have been magical enough but to top it off- my cousin and uncle happened to be attending the same concert so we commuted home with them. I don’t get to see my family a lot so this really speaks volumes on how spirit was working overtime to make the night even more magical 💓
It’s easy to get swept up in the negative of any situation. Some fans were shockingly aggressive before we even entered the venue so my anxiety in crowds was intensified as we made our way to our nosebleed seats. But I focused on the positive instead: the love of my life holding my hand, live music, seeing John Mayer in a new setting, being in Queens, that gorgeous sunset😍! So spirit rewarded us with even better tickets and the chance to see family.
It was a night I will never forget and followed by even more happy memories over the weekend. Today you will likely have some moments of anger, stress, anxiety, grief or any mix of emotions. But take a moment to count your blessings instead of what’s causing the stress. You’ll be surprised how quickly you manifest positive situations and outcomes!💓
