Why is it that We Love the Chase and Bore of the Prize?

They say it’s human nature. I say it’s just part of the game…hence the chase. Then when you win the game is over…much like love or the pursuit of love these days. But it doesn’t have to end. We are constantly playing games in love, work, leisure, etc. What is the prize in the end of capturing love? So if love is supposed to be the prize then what keeps love from dying if it was so sought after in the beginning?

This conquest of love seems to change as the years goes by. It’s like the prize can be created by yourself as you progress and as you experience; if you choose so. Often people wonder why they keep attracting the same person over and over but if it’s not what you want then change your prize…Calgarians, pick your prize just like as if it were Stampede. So when you get to the finish line we often reconsider…is this really what I want or is this really what I thought I wanted? And when the chase is over, the excitement is gone maybe because the actual medal was a distortion of the authenticity of the gold that it was and ended up being gold plated. Yikes! But you won’t know unless you get to that point or shall I say unless you ‘jouyz le jeu’.

If there wasn’t a game then there wouldn’t be any players. Just in the last few years I have come to terms with the word “player”. A player isn’t someone who has many interests on the go and is sleeping with all of them and being dishonest…that’s just a jerk, but a true player is someone who is testing the waters, being true to themselves and their interests and going through the numbers until they find someone that they want to devote their time to and be exclusive to without selling themselves short or settling. Even at that point you are still in the game. In the whole grand scheme of things it is the game of life and love is a small but crucial part of that game.

It isn’t all about winning…it’s about having fun while chasing. Finding out that the person you are chasing isn’t the one is not a complete loss, or loss at all, but an experience to take on the next and not to have it confused with being jaded (that’s another article). But finding someone that keeps you interested in after you win is the pot of gold, or platinum if you wish. The victory I am going say is continuous interest and attractment. But just like any other play it’s the love of the game. You win some you lose some but it’s all about the experience and fun that you had while doing it. I can’t wait to get into a game but this time before I chase I will select the prize that I want. Have fun and keep chasing until you find you reach your victory. But for now I’m glad I can run in heels.

Forever,
