Every once in while I experience something where you just pause and think "this. is. awesome." Some examples of mine:
- in the stands during the last few minutes of a Team Canada hockey game with a close score, everyone standing and cheering
- going into a completely pitch-black cave with absolutely zero light
- turning around after an awesome concert by my favorite band and seeing a sold-out arena chanting in unison
- sitting in a forest during a rain storm, hearing the rain pitter-patter on the surrounding me while staying completely dry
It's often little things, but it's an something you words can't describe and you must be there to understand. I'd like to avoid things like "watching my son grow up", "earning my PHD", "growing old with my wife", or other cliche type things. I'm hoping for specific moments I can seek out directly or set myself up for. So, what's the greatest moment I need to go experience right now?
