People with passion often have difficulty if they are not constantly "on" regarding their product or services. But I know how vital a break can be. Just a small change in the routine, a small time without social media availability, a little diversion and escape can clear the cobwebs, infuse new ideas and get those creative juices flowing with incredible clarity.
If you feel like you have been fanning flames to the point of exhaustion, perhaps its time as well for you to let yourself refresh, reconnect and return to the part of life called 'ordinary' where cell phones are replaced by face to face connection and twitter feeds and facebook posts are put on hold for lazy days drenched in the inspiration of watching a hermit crab instead of a brilliant speaker. Maybe it's time to trade grid lock traffic for long walks through Mother Nature's paradise and check emails less and check out a little more. It will all still be waiting when this glorious time is over.
So for the next week or so, I will be refreshed by the ordinary...the extraordinary ordinary which often reminds us of how far we have come and how blessed we are to have taken the ride of our life even if for just a short time we choose to push the "on hold" button and pause.
You can find me back at the keyboard or speaking circuit in a week or so. Until them, I am escaping to the place where I can make my fire work?
Do you need to take a break and put your passion into simmer so you can fire it up?
What do you do to really make your own fire work?
