I know I have worked very hard to get as prepared as possible within my budget. I’m feeling darn confident in my preps and what I have learned and done so far on this little adventure. Oh, I’m not done by a long shot and other than not getting the reloading setup going a bit earlier I don’t have any regrets. The ammo/reloading setup goal was just poor timing and bad luck completely out of my control. Stuff happens and life, mama nature or God will come along and show us just how little control we have over the general mish mash called life.
I don’t know why my mental attitude changed to acceptance, but sometime last year in the fall and winter of 2012 it happened. For me it has changed my whole life and outlook for prepping. I still have my moments of disbelief in the complete and utter stupidity and ignorance of both people and the PTBs. I accept that is how they are and they are not special both history and literature is full of examples of this kind of behavior going back thousands of years.
My life is going pretty darn good right now. Oh sure I want to do more about protecting my tribe/family but overall I feeling farly confident I’m doing the right thing in preparing and have done a pretty good job overall in comparison to anyone. I still have a lot to learn and I love learning! From dee’s info about stocking OTC medicine and visiting Beth’s’ website making cream of whatever soup via powder milk, this stuff is fun for me.
I’ll drop off the refi paperwork on Monday. If it works great, if not I have lost nothing and will keep paying my bills because it is the right thing for me to do. I look at myself in the mirror very morning and pray to God every night and if those two items are good the PTBs can go to hell. I’ll go shopping and get prepped and be a blessing to others. I will keep this blog going and get local and try to have as much fun and do my best everyday not being a serf. I am a child of God, unique and formed by his own hands for a purpose. It is my choice how I live my life and to find and define my own purpose in life. I think I may have found it. The pay isn’t much but the rewards are great!
