According to Webster: “choice,” (in context) n. An alternative.
Question: What is the first thing that “actually” happens when you have no choice?
99 out of 98 folks will more often than not reply with; “Nature kicks in with…
..your fight or flight response.
Although the foregoing is a great answer, ..it is not correct.
The first thing that nature (actually) provides “you” to deal with a precarious, and/or, life-threatening situation, is adrenaline.
According to Webster: “a·dren·a·line,” A hormone released into the bloodstream in response to fear or injury.
Of course, we don’t actually have to be faced with danger or a life-threatening situation to experience adrenaline.
There are numerous ways for us to experience adrenaline, which will be the focus of my post this morning.
An exciting cinema, or an afternoon shopping..
..at the Mall of America.
A first kiss…
..or a heavy foot.
Speaking for myself, ..these days it doesn’t take much more than the calendar hanging above my desk, as each new day for a septuagenarian is an (event), “if appreciated properly,” can be a path to adrenaline. 🙂
Take the morning weather report as example, (this time of year) every day that passes without a prediction of snow is a good source of adrenaline if you’re as (allergic) to the handle of the snow shovel as I have become in recent years.
Homo sapiens, and/or human beings are indeed a confusing lot, ..as we want what we want when we want it.
Which is really strange when you think about the fact that we all start from day one, which in itself is precarious.
According to Webster: “pre·car·i·ous,” (in context) Uncertain; dependent on other than yourself.
Indisputable truth; “There is nothing in the universe “sadder” than a bird in a cage.
Think about it, I’ll be back tomorrow
