When the inner fire goes out
By Emma Palova
I am meditating on today’s theme “When the inner fire goes out and meeting another human being rekindles it.”
This is a big one because it has happened to all of us. We are sharing a common human experience.
It has happened to me many times in life and then I suddenly met a person who sparked the fire in me again. I recall them all. They were editors, fellow writers, business owners, store managers and directors.
Most recently it has happened to me on the Internet with the 30 Day Content Challenge. I went into the challenge on Nov. 17 after finding out about it only on the previous day totally burnt out from years of writing.
I could have plain ignored it like I have other challenges. But, this seemed important.
Why was it important to me? It wasn’t to showcase anything or to prove to myself that I can do it. It wasn’t for the exposure either. It was because of the special bond these challenges create, they teach you discipline and you are helping others move forward. By helping others you are also helping yourself.
My weakness is the lack of discipline in everything. I like freedom without boundaries. But, that creates also problems. I can overeat, overwork and overdo. And after that I need rest to recharge my batteries. It’s like a vicious roller coaster.
Yes, the 30 Day Content Challenge rekindled my inner spirit. I found new passion for writing, met new people, made new friends on Facebook and twitter and I got new followers on EW Emma’s Writings.
So, in the end even though I wasn’t seeking exposure, I got it.
I found gratitude to those who led the challenge and helped out.
I found the writer in me who will never go away even when I try to throw that character out.
