I’d been looking forward to the other night for years. 10 years to be exact. I proudly admit that I called in every time Ryan Seacreast and Brian Dunkelman (yeah, remember that guy?) told me to.
And that hair, I totally rocked it. Please, be gentle….it was Freshman year of college….going to the “White Trash Bash”…..I know….
Needless to say, I was beyond excited when my dear friend told me she could get tickets and asked if I wanted to come. DUH!!
I was expecting a fun night out with my girl, dinner without the kids, and a blast at the concert. What I wasn’t expecting was a lesson in humility.
Kelly’s a superstar, has a 10 year career to back her up, and could totally get away with being a diva if she wanted to. What I found was someone truly honored to have the support, thankful for her fans, success, and those who support her. Someone who took time out of her show and the attention being on her to highlight a cause she cares about and highlighting those less fortunate. An artist who will never remember my name or face, but made 1 minute of my life 1 minute I will never forget with a smile, a hug, and genuine gratitude that I would come to see her show.
Kelly’s ability to make it so clear to everyone in the theater that night that she is so thankful for all of this really struck me.
Am I thankful enough?
Do I tell people thank you enough? Am I grateful enough for where I am? Am I teaching LJ to be humble?

I am so blessed in this life, but sometimes it’s so easy to loose sight of that. To get lost in the disappointments, the struggles, the things that don’t go my way.
Thanks Kelly for showing me how humility is supposed to look.
And the show was AH.MAZ.ING, so thanks for that too
