Some people remember tons of dates. I remember my few – obvious ones of course, birthdays and anniversaries of immediate family members, but there a few more. Every time theycome up, they are like signs on a steep curve on a smooth-paved highway, we see them big and bold and green – but we are whizzing by so fast, we know it will be another year till we see them.
That emotional cliff-drop of big things failing or blowing up at the last moment happens sometimes, often when we least expect or need it.
Have you ever had that big build-up to a pivotal moment? I mean that big date, or big trip, the big deal, some big event. Most times they go well. Euphoria, excitement, adrenaline – then comes that let down, some relaxing, ‘resuming normal’ follows. Until our adrenalin rush from our run-up to that next event of high emotion.
