Over time, fear, failure and exhaustion can dim even the brightest of lights.
But we need to keep our flame bright not only to light our own way, but also so we may guide, support and encourage others. And that is why we must do all that we can to protect our flame from the destructive elements that want to squelch it.
Fuel is required to keep our flame going. Take time to think of things you can do to keep your energy high and your dreams alive, and make them a priority. And here are a few other ways that are sure to fuel your fire.
- Express gratitude daily.
Tell the people around you that you appreciate them. Give thanks for your health, your home, your friends and loved ones. Smile. Gratitude magnifies your feelings of goodwill, and your radiance.
- Get physical.
In order for us to be strong for others, we have to feel strong ourselves. Moving for just 20 minutes a day has been clinically shown to improve your mood & boost your health. Try a yoga class, ride your bike around town, or go for a swim, and you’ll shine brighter for others.
Spending time in silence reconnects you with your source of self-awareness, self-assuredness & happiness. It’s also been shown to greatly reduce stress & improve communication. Meditation is your fuel.
What other things do you like to do to rekindle your fire? Perhaps it is something artistic, taking a warm soothing bath, reading an inspiring book, or communing with nature.
