I’m reading a new book. It’s very modivational, and it has me a bit pumped up. It is capitalizing abit on social media trends, but makes a LOT of sense in other areas. So, this prompts me to write this post, which is much different than many of my others. It is more of a confession, really, and is the truth in reality. Here is what I want you to know.
I love you guys! Seriously! I started this blog without expectation some months ago, and have only coninued to c express my thoughts, and you have come back time and time again to read what I have written. The truth is, I am no expert. Not by a long shot. I am just a guy, caught between what I believe and reality. The real me. A politically frightened, economically challenged, worker bee of sorts, trying to become the “ant” or the “wolf” moving beyond the bullshit of reality.
I’m a guy who is scared, confident, concerened, and more about the future, what it holds, and wondering how I get there fewer than normal scars.
How, how do I become the stronger man? How do I relay what I learn about survival and make it matter?
I am clearly in a philosophical mood, but I think this is important. Very important. To you, your family, children, their friends, etc. What happens if a natural disaster strikes? What happens if a man made disaster strikes? I cannot comprehend.
What I do know is that I am only partially prepared. Not as much as I want to be. As much as I should be. Finances are an issue. Other catalysts are at play. More on those later though.
I guess my point is, however, is that I am here for you. Figuratively spaking of course. I will always answer your emails. I will always try to research and answer your questions, I will always try to stay on top of what is important, and I will try not to be redundant.
What I ask in return… I ask you be honest. I ask you participate. I ask you question what I write to make me work harder for you (and myself), and again, I ask you participate. Your experience and opinions mean the world to me… And, I can assure you, you don’t even begin to understand what they mean to other readers.
In conclusion, again, my heartfelt thanks for the time out of your day, to participate in a moment of my time.
Great post — thanks for putting it out there. I’m sure I’m not the only one who relates and feels much the same.
Thanks… I appreciate the support. I am a neophyte/student of prepping and survival. It is such a work in progress that I want to share my thoughts on everything as I come to the little “light bulb” moments…
You have nothing to apologize for. The best of men do question their knowledge to achieve better understanding. Awareness is the catalyst of knowledge. Experience is the seeds of wisdom. Your choice to help others is the portal to better odds of survival in the future. Maintain your website, and it will maintain you.
Thanks Robert! It is appreciated.
I want to applaud and thank you for throwing yourself out there. The measure of a man is not how tough, manly or smart he thinks he is. A true man is measured by what others think of him. A truly great person is only as great as those who support them. We could all better ourselves by helping each other more. Great post, keep up the good work.
@Bill510c — thanks for the kind words… I appreciate it greatly! I’ll continue to try to bring you the best stuff i can…
I appreciate the honest and thoughtful post. We’re all in different situations but somehow are all in the same boat as far as concerns and worries for the future. Please continue the good work. Thanks for sharing these personal thoughts.
Anytime, and thanks… I really enjoy your blog as well!
