A literal sh*t storm
When I was in Spain last week
The farmers were spraying their fields with fertiliser
On its own, a necessary and innocent action
But when you couple that with the storms that Spain was having last week on the north coat
The fields leeched into the rivers
And the rivers into the sea
So I was surfing in a literal ‘sh*t storm!’
It was GROSS
And it smelt disgusting
Thankfully it only happened on the last day!
But it got me thinking about a few things
My primary thoughts were about water borne diseases and what not
But then it occurred to me that I could drag a good metaphor out of this for you
One simple action
One simple necessary action
Had a MASSIVE impact further down the chain
The farmers were just doing their job
But it had a really negative effect on the surrounding areas and the beaches
And that’s the thing….
We don’t really think of the impact that our actions have further down the line
We live in the moment a lot…and whilst it IS important to be mindful and live in the moment
It is also important to recognise where your actions might be causing a ‘sh*t storm’ inside your body!
And the effects that one simple action, one simple choice can have, on the rest of your lifestyle
How you feel is affected by the things that you do
If you feel like crap
Have a think about the choices that you are making!
And how these are leeching your energy, your mood or your health?
It doesn’t take a lot to have a big impact
This works both ways
You can take some simple steps and make a big difference in your health, happiness and confidence
Or you can continue making the choices that you are now
And stay the same
The choice is yours
But if you are living in a perpetual ‘sh*t storm’
You do have a choice
And it’s not as hard as you think to restore sunny skies!
