This blog started out as a prepper's blog. It has, as most blogs do, taken on its own life. I am sure it will continue to evolve into whatever direction I tend to flow with. I tend to write in the "here and now" most of the time. That's just me! Unfortunately, (or so I thought) at this moment in my life, I have had to step back from prepping in the way I had become accustomed to. The gathering of physical preps has had to be put on hold for awhile. I found myself becoming a bit depressed over that reality.
And then, in a weird twist of fate, I was reminded what the preparedness movement is REALLY about. Some of the most important aspects of prepping come from learning and teaching others new skills and to be able to use those skills in real life situations. It is not just stocking up for those times you will need "things". Just because I am not actively adding physical things to my preps doesn't mean I have to hit the brakes. I can still help others as well as learn new things every day. And isn't that the real purpose? To find "freedom through teaching others self reliance"?
I have been a member of one of the many preparedness forums out there for a few years now. I had written many posts and have been an active member to one in particular. I was dismayed to find that someone had deleted all my posts and even deleted my membership there. All things happen for a reason though. My resolve share my knowledge with others has been rekindled. So I would like to say thank you to the person who has helped me regain my forward motion!
