Fearing what?

Every day, I welcome what people tell me. I like the honesty and the open discussion that comes from comments I receive on this blog. I like to debate and I don't have a problem with people who tell me that I am wrong. Some days I am.

This last month, however, I have come to one realization. Some people believe that I prep, store food, garden, and learn new skills because I am afraid. That I am doing this out of fear.

I only fear one thing. If you have a spouse and/or kids, you will understand this. I fear not being able to take care of my family no matter what happens. I have been given four incredible blessings to love and care for. It is my primary job to take care of them.

I fear nothing else. Fear leads to so many other negative things like paranoia, cowardice, dependency, and irrational reactions. Fear is not healthy. To me, fear is paralyzing. I refuse to be afraid of anything.

I do not believe the world is going to come to an end. I do not believe that we will all be taken out in one flash. If that does happen, you won't have time to prep or to be afraid anyway.

I believe in being self-sufficient. I believe in not relying on the government. I believe in raising four responsible kids who will be able to provide for themselves when the time comes for them to leave the nest.

By taking the measures I am taking now, I will have nothing to fear because my family will be taken care of. That does give me a great sense of security.

Thanks for reading! Have a great day!
