My 30 In 30 Days Challenge Finale  -  Friends

Here I am, made it to the last article of my 30 in 30 days challenge. I even manage to finish it two days earlier. Just in case, I will put in an extra few writings. I feel satisfied and very proud of myself.

I am proud, a little exhausted and there is a tiny bit of sadness because the challenge is over. I will miss it! However, I already decided that I will keep writing!

Other than the 30 something articles I have written and the learning I have done, the greatest outcome of this challenge are my new friendships. It is strange that we feel that we can connect to people we don't or hardly know and have never met. However, this article is about them. Three of them.

Anna and Chip from Street Articles have been my new friends, who commented an supported me all the way during the challenge. I received a lot of encouragement from Anna and Chip. Because of them I did not feel myself in a vacuum as a new comer. I will be eternally grateful for their support and friendship. Just last night I read Anna's comment to one of my articles and in that she shared that she is doing the 30 in 30 days challenge around five little children! Woohaa! What a woman! Good luck to you Anna! You already deserve a medal! Now it is my time to return the support!

The third friend is 15,500km away but still very close.

I had a little crisis around day 17 for a few days then this weekend I managed to power ahead. I was just telling to my Hungarian friend, Andras, about this challenge when last night we were talking on Skype. I just finished the 29th article and submitted it then connected to Skype to have the chat we were both looking forward to. He was already online waiting for me to log in. It felt really nice that he was waiting there for us to talk. It felt like leaving someone waiting for you on the street on a date. We were happy to hear the voice of the other. Our calls are always happy, interesting and friendly. It is full of fascinating topics, lots of laughter and emotions. We spend hours talking but we hardly notice the passing of time.

There are a lot of common interests between us. We are both building our Flavon Max Network business. We both love personal development and this was the main line of conversation between us yesterday. Eckhart Tolle's painbody theory that I wrote a previous article on and his books came up. A strange coincidence, that Andras just started to read another book by this author. We were discussing the fact that we can't rush things in life, otherwise we pay a big price. As we say in English, go with the flow! In Hungarian it has a similar meaning when I translate it. You can't run ahead of life, as Andras said.

Last night, amongst many other things, we were talking about the fact that it would be so out of character not to complete the 30 articles.

As the conversation went along about this challenge, Andras shared his experience on this. Andras is an Olympic winner athlete. He was in pentathlon and still extremely active in running, swimming and cycling. Andras just completed a marathon run of 260km from Szolnok to Lake Balaton with his friends, then two weeks later tested himself doing another run. He was telling me about his experience of quitting.

It was at a National Swimming Championship last year. He was just at the end of a not happy relationship. His girlfriend gave him a swimming cap as a gift. In the race he was doing really well and it looked like he would finish in the top three. Then suddenly he felt like he was panicking and suffocating. That cap felt too tight, was squeezing his head and was bothering him so much that he had to get rid of it with the goggles in the middle of the race. He clearly recognized that it was emotionally connected to his failing relationship.

Our emotional state plays very important part in our achievements. They can motivate us or 'suffocate' us and make us quit. To complete things we need a balanced and positive mental, physical and emotional state. Our relationships can lift us or sink us.

Interestingly, my little writer's crisis took place close to the Golden Ratio point of the 30 articles in 30 day challenge. That is no accident. In music that is the point when the climax of the music should take place. In nature, everything is designed according to the Golden Ratio. This ratio exists because the particular growth pattern evolved as the most effective. Was it Nature's hand in this to test me and make sure I grow? However, I think I did!

Andras, thank you for the inspiration.

Cheers, Piroska
