Tips Tuesday – The Engine Light!
So my car was hesitating in higher rev at second gear. I wasn’t sure what was going on not being terribly ‘Car Saavy’, so I asked my husband to check it out. After filling the tank with premium gas and some fuel conditioner it seemed to be running more smoothly. (Hoping to purchase a Hybrid VERY SOON!). This didn’t last long, after a longer road trip the problem had become worst. This time the hubby got serious about the investigation! Under the hood uncovered the real problem! A gaping hole in an air vent was the culprit to our car’s hiccup predicament. after repairing the hole, cleaning the interior and exterior the car is running as smooth as ever!
Now most of you used to these bloggs are probably trying to connect the dots to this theme, and the theme my typical bloggs take. So many people run their bodies like a machine, no oils changes, no filling the gas tanks, no car washes or repairs. Just running till ‘something’, usually illness, forces them to look at their health and what efforts their self care has had on their health if they have shown any self care towards themselves at all. When we pay more attention you our bodies, the whispers can be enough to remind us we need to do more to preserve our health and not wait till the shout to attempt to put out fires. Any high performance vehicle needs maintenance, to stay in peak performance and avoid break downs. What makes us think we can go at top speed and not break down, not crash and burn? Want to reach peak performance? Want to run on most efficient gas mileage? You need to get your tires rotated, get an oil change now and again, maybe take the scenic route once and a while. Ok so this might be an article to share with your hubby to motivate him to introduce more self care too, but I have yet another connection to make.
Everything is connected. If one thing is dysfunctional in the engine of life whether it be mentally physically or emotionally, you WILL feel it in other areas. It is essential to recognize that you can not overly any issue you are experiencing, it is the ‘Engine Light’ that your life uses to draw attention to something only you can fix. On a grander scale all this week HHDS is participating in Earth Week celebrations. We are doing this because whether it’s convenient or not, easy or not, comfortable or not, our planet is flashing the engine light, and it has been for a while. When will you take note, and do what YOU can to heal the problem. Feel free to join us in cleaning up our communities this week, everyday we are going out collecting garbage, making an effort to prevent the items tossed around on garbage day over the winter from entering our water systems and killing our wild life, in an effort to ease the glow of the Engine light. As we are all connected, the responsibility lies in each of our hands to do our part, nothing else matters no other issues as large or prominent if we don’t have fresh air to breath clean water to drink and majestic creatures to share our planet with.
