This is Monday’s show, but I’m releasing it a day early as a Mother’s day treat. It’s an episode about staying positive and pulling your head out of the doom and gloom.
BLAH, BLAH, BLAH…
Can we just stop the hysteria, please?
The chance of a large-scale disaster worthy of discussing ad nauseum is just insignificant. Yes, fires, floods and job losses happen. Yes bad things happen to people every day. That does NOT mean we obsess about it every day. Worse, some bloggers and podcasters seem to be sitting around HOPING for something bad to happen so that they can use all these cool preps and skills.
Hoping for something bad to happen? Really?
Me…I don’t expect something bad to happen. I really don’t. So why do I prep? Because something bad MAY happen. Big difference. Just like the difference between the person who buys life and auto insurance in case something goes wrong as opposed to the person who buys insurance knowing they are going to get in a wreck or die of cancer.
Prepping is one facet of me and my well-adjusted life. I do not dwell on disaster, I do not lie awake at night contemplating disaster. I think about my family, my faith, and my life. Prepping is just a small part of my life.
Let me repeat myself: I do not plan on something bad happening. I plan on the idea that something bad may happen.
I’m sick of doom and gloom prepping talk that leads to paranoia and depression.
The world isn’t going to end. TEOTWAWKI isn’t here. The financial markets aren’t going to collapse. Probably.
