While it is important to be prepared for things that are ocurring and things that might occur it is equally important to not obsess over these things.  Keep things in perspective; if you can live your life prepared but also happy, healthy and with peace of mind then you are way ahead of most folks. 

Your health is of the utmost importance.  Without good health, everything else is secondary.  Work on doing all you can to be healthy, happy, develop peace of mind and have a positive outlook on life.  Everything else will then fall into place.

    Hi, not sure if you’ve heard or read it before but there is a book called, “The Gift of Fear” by Gavin De Becker and it is absolutely phenomenal. On the cover of the book it reads, “This book can save your life.” “And other survival signals that protect us from violence.”

    Just a suggestion! If you check it out let me know! It’s amazing.

      Thanks for the suggestion Kristen. One of the books I find very helpful is called As a Man Thinketh by James Allen which reinforces the notion that who and what we are is based on our thoughts. Think well of yourself and good things happen; think poorly of yourself and not so good things occur.

        I will be purchasing that book in t-minus 5 hours. I was JUST brainstorming what books I need to get/read and the book you just suggested sounds like something right up my alley. Thank you!

        You’re welcome Kristen. Enjoy the read. Personally I find life is so much easier when one is confident and has a positive outlook on things and can achieve peace of mind 🙂

  2. What about changing your life so living and prepping become the same fulfilling way of life? Thrivalists work toward building a secure, self-reliant existence full time with strategically thought out dwellings, food, energy, work, water, health care, and other needs. This itself can become a lifetime endeavor. You can’t cover every contingency for natural disasters, but thinking things through before investing a bunch of time and money into arranging your life can put you in an advantageous spot. If you believe in imminent societal collapse, consider putting all your resources into changing the way things work, not feeding the system you think will self destruct while resting on your stockpile and waiting for the end.
