This weekly post is an open-forum (any topic) to voice your thoughts, opinions, or questions for others. Lets hear about what you’ve been doing this week for preparedness, or perhaps what you have done to convert your ‘fiat’ (paper) currency into tangible assets 😉

The more who comment, the more that’s spread around for the benefit of all…

Here we go folks… we’re into the new year. Let’s prepare for the worst while living life to its fullest. It’s a combination of consciously preparing for the bad while not letting ‘fear’ creep into your life. Harness your concerns into preparedness and let it embolden and strengthen you.

This past week I have done nothing specific for ‘preparedness’ – although I was reminded of WHY we prepare while having been away for awhile as we traveled and visited friends and family within heavily populated regions. The way of life there is ‘normal’ for most, however I tend to see the systemic risks and “what if’s” of it all… Oh well – I guess I’m not normal 😉

 
What have you been up to this week?
