When you start reading about preparedness, and reading these different websites, it can seem like you are completely unprepared. The truth is, you’re probably not as unprepared as you think you are. All of us have different skills, different strengths, and different weaknesses, but none of us are completely prepared.
Instead of focusing on what you don’t have, focus on what you do have. You may not call it “food storage” yet, but the odds are you already have a couple days’ worth of food stored. You may not think being an auto mechanic, an electrician, or a construction worker have anything to do with preparedness, but they will play a key role later.
In short, don’t underestimate yourself, and don’t focus on how “unprepared” you are. Preparedness is about the journey, and in no time at all you will be better off than you ever thought possible. Make a list of what you bring to the table, and then start planning on how you can add to that list.
