A week or so ago, I mentioned I had been wrestling with what to work on to bring my lapsed preparedness efforts up to snuff. We are in a bad patch in this country. The past several months have been filled with societal and economic upheaval, with shortages and hoarding, with people filled with anger, anxiety, and frustration, and with lots of idiocy. There are so many things to do and only limited resources, so I found myself flitting from one thing to another and making what I thought was very little progress.
To calm my mind, I reviewed some of my previous blog posts to refresh my focus. The first thing I found was that I’m doing fine. Yes, there are lots of things to do across several categories, and, yes, I don’t have the resources to move as quickly as I would like, but I was reminded to just do a little in each area (perhaps a little more in categories that are sorely behind) and I will be blessed for having done the best I can with I have.
I also found this diagram of the overall preparedness effort:
It reminds me that getting prepared is not all about buying stuff. When you’ve used up your budget for Supplies expenditures, you can still work on the areas of Planning and Training.
Every step is progress.
