Buy the ticket.

I have been to a good number of concerts this year, and I have loved every second of each one. They made me realize how much more I value experiences over material possessions.

I went to see Carrie Underwood last night, and she was phenomenal! She is an incredible role model, queen of country, mother, wife, performer, and vocalist. I had a blast and did not even care how sleep-deprived I was this morning during my 8am class. After the concert, all I could think was how happy I was that I bought the ticket.

So many times, I let money prevent me from ordering a medium (or large) blizzard that I really want instead of the small, driving to see my friends because I don’t want to pay for another tank of gas, getting a pedicure when my feet really need a touch up, etc. The list goes on and on and on, but I want to always remember the concert-high I feel when the artist gives that final encore, my feet and face hurt from dancing and smiling so much, and I leave the venue feeling extremely happy.

I want to remember to buy the ticket in all circumstances and contexts (within reason of course) because it will be worth it.
