How Best to Cheapen a Gesture

The Rockies of Colorado now symbolize, for better or for worse, the trust I place in my own decisions and the realization that things are sometimes fun/valuable/good/worthwhile even if the corresponding fun/value/goodness/worth are apparent only to me.

I just purchased a Rockies hat on the internet so that I can be reminded of all that they symbolize whenever I wear it.

Question: does the fact that I'm sharing this information with you and the whole internet somehow cheapen the message which the hat is supposed to represent?
