Live Your Life

Prepping is, for many of us, a big part of our lives. It influences many decisions, from how we budget our money to what groceries we buy to where we choose to live. We read numerous books, we subscribe to several magazines, and we watch innumerable videos, all in hopes of learning one more skill or technique that we can add to our toolbox.

That’s all well and good, admirable in fact.

However, while prepping might influence your life, it shouldn’t RUN your life. Yes, there is an awful lot of bad stuff going on in the world right now. There’s no denying that. But you need to get out there and live your life. Prepping should not be about fear. Working toward being better prepared for whatever life tosses your way should result in confidence, not trepidation.

Keep your wits about you, of course. Maintain a constant level of situational awareness. But, don’t let fear of the unknown be a driving force in your decision-making process.

Life is meant to be lived.

It is a journey to be experienced.

  • Eat the cookie.
  • Stay up late and watch a stupid movie with your kids.
  • Hug your dog.
  • Take your spouse out to a fancy dinner or a picnic in the park.
  • Go on a hike.
  • Take a long drive somewhere new.
  • Make love.
  • Laugh at your own foibles.
  • Invite a few friends over for a game night.
  • Go see a play. Buy the ice cream cone.
  • Tell your loved ones how you feel about them.

Live your life.

Do it intelligently and with an eye toward common sense, but don’t just sit at home afraid the boogeyman is going to get you.
