Anyone that has developed a love for fishing knows what a wonderful reset of you’re brain, heart and soul it is. Fishing for the soul is better than any medication you could take. I’m in the process of trying to sell a house, live off of a tight budget, involved in a recent auto accident (no one was hurt), and trying to help friends going through difficult times. It started to get stressful and I ran to what I knew I needed to do, GO FISHING!!
You can click on the image above for a video of my trip. Only caught three fish, but to be honest it wouldn’t have mattered if I hadn’t caught a thing. I talked with God almost the entire time. It was a master reset, I walked back to my rental truck (my truck is in the body shop) with a new spring in my step. Come to find out my perceived problems weren’t an issue after all. The house hasn’t sold yet for a good reason, there is a purpose for me being here, just don’t know what it is yet. The accident is 100 percent covered by insurance, no biggie. The budget is what it is, I’m not hungry and the bills are getting paid. We all go through difficult times, God has placed me where I can help my friends, what a blessing.
And as if God was saying its all okay, I walked up on this fine feathered friend. Was able to watch and record him for quite some time. Sorry for the video quality, I’m still learning and don’t have a go-pro recorder. Thanks Uncle Larry and Aunt GG for the hand held recorder. Couldn’t have done this post without it.
So, if your stressed and you might not even know you are, stop what your doing. Grab a rod and reel and go to the closest body of water near you. Sit down and take your time, look around and see what the real world looks like. It’s not facebook, twitter, or the internet which accounts for some of my stress. We tend to live in an artificial bubble that our body and soul were not designed for. Take my advise and break out of the bubble as often as you can. God bless you and please let me know how fishing has helped you.
