Chasing the thrill of the first encounter….

52Seasons8 Ever done this in some regard, about something, some experience, or someone?

Is this ‘chase of the thrill’ what creates ‘addiction’?

Your first bite of pizza tastes sooo good that instead of savoring it, you eat two pizzas ‘hoping’ to ‘regain’ the pleasure of that very first bite. The first sip of cold beer on a hot day tastes so wonderful that you drink a case looking for the same blissful rush of the first….

You feel the excitement of the first blush of falling in love, but when it subsides, you exit, off on the hunt to regain the thrill of the first encounter with someone else, instead of appreciating what you have….

Why is this the nature of many … to be on the hunt for the thrill of  of the first encounter and of what ‘usually’ can’t be recreated?…

Might I suggest imprint the thrill of that first encounter on your being and savor it slowly… and forget chasing what is illusive and to realize that you might lose all you have and even what you are in your attempt to recreate it…

Addictive people are always chasing something… ever noticed that? They are chasing and searching for what they don’t have in themselves. They are looking to ‘feel’ something or to ‘sedate’ themselves with food, drugs, sex, being overly religious, shopping, or to have some excitement or thrill in anything that they ‘think’ will do it …

Savor the magic of the first encounter, but forget trying to chase it because if and when it comes again, it will arrive when you least expect it. It’s not something to chase. In fact, chasing it could very well diminish it.

What does this mean to you?….
