All things must end, but when an experience is enjoyable and you don’t want it to end then the disappointment when it ends is horrible. I find this to be true when I’m talking to a close friend, eating the best cheesecake I have ever tasted in my life, having an excellent workout or taking a trip where the weather is great and there is so much to see and do that I just want it to last just a little bit longer.
It also happens when I read a great book. When I am getting closer to the end I tend to slow down because I don’t want it to end. For me that’s how I know a book has become an experience, when I don’t want to stop reading it even though I know it must come to a close because there are other great books to be read.
