For those of us on a tight budget, it’s hard to see ahead enough in how we’ll be able to add more groceries and supplies to our ever-shrinking lists. For those of us with so little time left in our days, it’s hard to see how we can manage to make some extra to devote to spending time preparing our stuff or learning a new skill. It’s time to give yourself permission to do it!
It’s Time to Give Yourself Permission!
I see people talk all the time that they just don’t have it in them to buy 3 extra days’ worth of food, or they will get to it when they have time. And something happens to them, and they think, “Man…if only I’d done it.”
But here’s the thing, this is important stuff. And while I’ll always tell you to make do, make it yourself, and learn to do it yourself (because self-sufficiency is our ultimate goal with those actions), I am saying that right here, right now, it’s okay to give yourself permission to just go ahead and buy what you need to buy, spend time that you ‘need’ to be doing something else, and get your family prepared for at least 3 days.
In the most likely scenario for many of us, three days get us through until we can return home, help arrives or we can make arrangements and get ourselves to a safe location. Get yourself ready for that now. Build on the rest as you can, but at least get your family to that point now.
What is the next hurdle that you can’t seem to get across? Make time today to get it done.
