this past week, I have gone to sleep smiling, I stay busy during the day, I wake up smiling. I have been a writing machine, I have been a talking machine. cooking machine, I was telling my new friend that he had put a shot of something into my life.
Is it serotonin ? Is it adrenaline?
He said.. it’s dopamine.
I googled it. and I saw addiction. so I exited quickly. ohhhhhhhhh.
Then he said, it’s more addictive than cocaine or heroin. It’s called a runner’s high, it’s what writers talk about when they get a surge to write like Stephen King.
Dopomine. = Dope
yes friends, I’m just going to admit it. I am high on the dopamine right now. It is some good stuff. I am suddenly confident so that when a job posted recently I went bonkers calling my tribe and saying. I need you to assist me in making sure I get this job. I will have that job.
Dopamine is helping me rally.
I spent an evening with my children’s youth group at the youth conference in my family’s most sacred place, Montreat. Dope.
I stared and watched my own children laugh and talk and be so at peace. I watched my beautiful friends children laugh, eat, dance and have serious conversations and I just sat and rocked in a chair and it was bliss.
Dopamine. damn I love you.
