After I posted about purpose yesterday, a friend set up a meeting for me to meet someone who knows a lot about the writing world. It was a great opportunity, but when I arrived, I was a little intimidated. Not because they made me feel that way, but because I felt so inadequate.
As we visited, the questions began to come quite frequently about why I reach out to others the way I do. Why do you do this? What were you like before? Why would you want to do this? All I was hearing was . . . Why? Why? Why?
I explained as best as I could. As I answered each question, I could feel my emotions stirring even stronger. This was my opportunity to share my heart and passion, as my why’s became my truths.
The more they asked me to explain, the bolder my convictions came until my passion was oozing out of me. I could feel it — that lump in my throat and the moisture in my eyes. The more passion I spoke with, the more questions they had.
And I found it again, that passion that made me cry my eyes out or bang my fists. I thought it had died a little over the course of the past few months, but there it was again starring me down.
The why of my life. The why’s of what I do what I do!
How about you? Have you ever had the opportunity to explain what you do? Explain the cause within you? Give reason to your why’s?
If you did, did it stir your soul to act? to cry? to pound your fists? to get up and do something?
I’m not sure if my new friend was curious about what I was wanting to write about or if he was just trying to stir a bolder passion within my soul. Either way, I walked away renewed.
Start answering your why’s and your passion will come to life. Your flame will be relit.
