Who remembers what the three things that you need for fire are?

School science innit?

If you said fuel, oxygen and ignition, give yourself a gold star.

If you didn’t, you’ve just learned something.

You need all three.

Something to burn.

Oxygen to burn it in.

And something to ‘start’ the fire.

One or two of them isn’t enough.

You have to ignite the log (or whatever) for it to burn – it doesn’t start for no reason.

Take away the oxygen and it immediately goes out.

Use up the wood and don’t put any more on the fire and it goes out.

And many situations in our lives are the same.

Our interactions with others for one.

In person or online.

Someone says something that pisses you off on Facebook and that’s the ignition.

The oxygen is your mind.

We can’t get rid of either of them as such.

But we can stop putting fuel on it.




It soon fizzles out without.

Our interactions with ourselves as well.

We “put fuel on” to our thoughts and feelings.

Acting on them.

Reacting to them.

Doing the thing that we then regret.

We take away that fuel by ‘responding’………..

By making a different choice………

That ‘fire’ is a little bit less vigorous next time.

And less still the time after.

Whatever our “fire”………..

How can we stop putting fuel on it?
