What are you doing? Are you one who desperately needs a "high" to continue or do you appreciate that a life of a prepper is a lifestyle change. Living does not cease, nor does joy or happiness. No, the only thing that changes is that way you see things and the way you do things. Gone should be the conditioned spender that needs new all the time. Gone should be the conditioned spender that has no clue how to maintain anything. Gone should be the conditioned spender that has no idea how to make any food of substance from scratch. Gone should be the person who was properly molded into a consumer living a life based on a number. Gone should be the person who is living in a home only as a step to the bigger, better home in the best neighborhood. Gone should be the person that has no clue what contentment is.
Yes, I ended that paragraph with what has happened to all of us. In the frenzied path of accumulation we have lost our simple ways, our simple joy and peace in appreciating the real things in life. Capitalism is not this...but it has been converted to this bizarro interpretation...and then spun by the Left. When everything at your fingertips has been made in China, how can it be Capitalism that has gone awry?
I say it is time to hurry up and wait. If you can begin thinking about a move to a rural place near the work that you have. If you can, begin spending money on the one tangible thing out there~ land. Not over priced land that is in a hip locale...no, buy land that can be used and lived on. This will carry on for generations. Buy land that has water- that is a place that you can hurry up and wait.
Just my thoughts.
Merry Christmas to You All
