My favorite summer activity is camping. This year I bought my own tent and headed off to Women's Wilderness Summit. The only thing that was missing from that experience was a campfire ring. I am addicted to campfires. If there is a fire ban, I don't go camping. I have a growing collection of photographs and videos of campfires, most of them from my own experiences.
Gazing into the mesmerizing flame on a recent camping trip, I was reflecting on what I love so much about that experience. A fire is hot, it is alive it is burning. Even without the flames, when it burns down to embers, it is calming. But the flame, my flame, what about that? How do I keep it alive. What is it that causes my fire to go out, my flame to die? When is my flame at its strongest?
I have discovered a few of my personal "fire blockers."
What fuels your fire? What are your "fire blockers?" Once you become aware of them, you will be less likely to lose that beautiful flame that energizes and drives your purpose.
