Preparation

Prepare  Now

In the event of a disaster, you may be on your own for a period of time. I have experienced this more than a few times

in the past several years. There was one time where the streets in my neighborhood were impassable for almost a week. There was no electricity, phone or internet service. The neighborhood was on our own. I’m happy to say that we survived!

God Not Government

If there is anything the past few years has taught me, it is the importance of being prepared.

Since 2018 my family has experienced several blizzards, a micro-burst and other severe weather related events. These situations have caused disruptions in our everyday lives; in many cases for at least a week or more. We have weathered each storm and have learned many lessons. It’s important to learn from each event. What did you do right? What did you do wrong?

Starting with The Basics

The best place to start on your prepping journey is at the beginning. This may seem like a no-brainer but it’s really not. I meet and speak with so many people who have no idea where to begin. It can be a little bit overwhelming when looking at all that needs to be accomplished in a time frame that remains unknown. A disaster or social upheaval may occur in the next hour, minute, day, week, month, or year ahead. We just don’t know. The one thing that is absolutely certain is that if you do nothing then you will make zero progress. 

Time to Start 

So you have decided to begin taking steps to provide and protect your family in the event of a disaster… Good choice!

You might be wondering where to begin. I know when I first started working towards this goal myself, I felt overwhelmed. There is a lot to learn, organize and train for. The key though is to begin. It will get easier as you move forward. For now, don’t let yourself become overwhelmed. That is the surest way to fail. This is one area where you don’t want to fail. There are people counting on you.

Benefits of Prepping 

It wasn’t too long ago that preppers; those people who we thought were hiding out in some mountain hut were the topic of many jokes. Little did we know, they were right all along. 

They weren’t living in the wilderness, surviving on wild berries and earthworms (which are edible if you were wondering). They were our neighbors. They were the people who fixed the leaking pipes in our bathrooms, represented us in court cases, fixed our cars, made our pizzas and prescribed medications when needed. Yes, preppers were everywhere. They still are!

Prepping is Necessary

If you are paying attention, it becomes clear that disasters of different kinds cause havoc in the lives of millions of

people each year around the globe. Many times these people are caught off-guard and unprepared.  These disasters cause physical, emotional, economic and social trauma in the lives of those they touch. Although you can never truly eliminate these effects; you can lessen the trauma caused and soften the blow to you and your loved ones by being prepared.

nice brisk mornings followed by a comfortable day. No it is hot and humid here in Connecticut. Although, the leaves are changing rapidly… they say that’s because we are in a drought. I love fall weather and I can’t wait until it finally arrives for the season. …

More Experience With Success

I began to realize that I was chasing the world’s concept of success.  I was told what the world thought success was and I pursued it, not realizing that I didn’t want it.  Being in charge of the world’s money supply wasn’t in the cards for me.  Thank God!
