getting back that loving feeling

Years ago, I met a guy. He was brilliant and creative and successful, and thought I was great. And suddenly, I was. I have never been so productive and creative in my life; I walked around with boundless energy and accomplished huge things with tremendous confidence. I also lost about ten pounds in a few weeks. Eventually, of course, things changed; you'll be shocked to hear he was less than perfect and it all ended in tears. But now I think about how I felt right at first and wonder: clearly, it was in me to be that way. Can I recreate that within myself, without some outside person sparking it? I would love to leap out of bed in the mornings and rush to create and accomplish all sorts of things, but don't want it to be giving the credit to someone else--or have it come falling down when the rush of infatuation is over. Is there a way, or is this why people do drugs?
