Yesterday I was thinking about what are some of the greatest experiences in which a person can participate. By greatest experience I mean a situation that is exhilarating, inspiring, uncommon, and/or in some other way fantastic. Perhaps this is rather vague, but I think my examples will be helpful. So far I’ve only come up with two:
1. A football player who makes a break deep in his own territory, sprinting with the ball towards the end zone with nothing but God and grass before him and tens of thousands of cheering fans all around him.
2. Taking that first step on the moon.
Actually, I can think of a third, but it is so common place and obvious that I don’t think I need to mention it. Hopefully, I’ll have more examples later . . . there’s gotta be more great experiences out there than just these two. Can anybody else think of similar “Great Experiences”? Let’s skip the vaguer ones like “winning the championship” or “witnessing the birth of your first child.” More appropriate examples might be something like “beating Battle Toads without ever dying” or “being kissed by Grace Kelly like how she kissed Cary Grant in To Catch a Thief.”
Here are some more:
3. Being in a rock band and playing to packed out arena. Heck, I’d even do a hair metal band for this.
