To chase is to pursue in order to catch up with. Ok, let’s take it a step further and use the word in a sentence. “The dog chased its tail.” “I chase vodka with cranberry juice.” I think you get the gist of it.
Chasing something can have several connotations. In a sense, chasing can be a frustrating experience. As the dog chasing its tail, the chase can be like an endless marathon.
Constantly seeking, constantly reaching out for something just outside of your grasp, giving up from time to time, getting tired but finding the energy to go after that thing again.
Then you have the rewarding side of chasing, the journey. Keeping your mindset on the victory and your eye on the prize, the chase seems so much more worth it.
