5 Clues for Uncovering Your Blue Flame
In Jennifer Fulwiler’s new book “One Beautiful Dream” she talks about having a blue flame. (Also this book may be the best book I’ve ever read. Just sayin’. Get.It..Now )
What is a blue flame?
What is a blue flame? It’s something that you have such burning passion for that if it were a flame it would turn blue because it’s at such a high heat. (Remember chemistry?) For Jennifer , it’s writing. It is a gift or talent that energizes you but that also can bless others.
I don’t think I have one
But what if you don’t know what your blue flame is? What if you feel like you have no talents? Or you can’t pinpoint a main talent among your many talents and interests? I have been confused in this way , but I’m discovering there may be clues to help you discover it, you:
- Straighten up in your chair because you are so excited to talk about it.
- Research and read about it constantly.
- People notice you are good at it and passionate about it.
- Are a go-to person on the subject.
- Feel drawn to do it when you have some uninterrupted time?.
For me it boils down to self-discipline – especially time-management / routines which includes organization because being organized affects your mental state which will help you save time and implement your routines. I could talk for hours about routines. I could name 10+ books I’ve read on the subject. When I have free time I watch YouTube videos about it. People have noticed when they visit me my house looks well-managed even though I have two highly active toddlers and that I am well dressed and have makeup on. I’m always analyzing how I could make things run smoother in my life to better serve others, take care of myself and my household. Self-discipline truly is essential for a life well-lived . A life lived with intention.
So what do you think your blue flame is? Do you have more than one? Let me know in the comments below!
