Motives and Motivations

Emergency Preparedness is first a state of mind involving a single goal oriented person. Then it evolves into a way of life in which, for whatever reason a person chooses, becomes something more than what they were before. In 2 sentances alone I have stated what I beleive most people on the American preppers Network would like to achieve. Instead of staying on this single idea for being prepared by exchanging ideas we've found and experiences we've endured, we shoose instead to make a mockery of our way of living proving the "outsiders", who accuse us of narrow mindedness etc, right about our intentions.

There is no right or wrong way, no right or wrong reasons. Not everyone has the same views or reasons for wanting to be better prepared. Because someone else doesn't think like you do is no reason to not be a Prepper. Becoming a prepper does not make you joined at the hip with anyone and you are free to think and feel any way you choose. it's not about what he says or what she says, it's about finding freedom thru self sufficiency! That's why I'm here. I already live self sustained, on a small farm, growing everything we eat. Raising my own livestock for food, canning, dehydrating, butchering, hunting, I even learned to make cheese. I make my own soap, repair things for myself, build what I need to make my life easier, that's what it's about. That's what it's always been about.

Choosing to be more self sufficient is a life changer folks. Just the implication leaves no more room for eating junk food, going out for pizza, sitting around staring at the TV while your brain rots away from the completely idiotic garbage spewing from network television stations. Any type of emergency preparedness is going to change your life. Making a real effort to take care of yourself is a huge step toward freedom.

Work together with the like minded people you find. Don't make mountains out of mole hills over things you can not do anything about. Not everyone is going to have the same thoughts or even political ideals you do and you will lose valuable friendships, ideas and information if you allow it to keep you from your goals.

I like how you put it. Do not let conflicking ideas stand in the way of learning from preppers. I have been reading for years blogs from both the doomers [peak oint left] and the right [The end is near or here]. What I have found both groups are doing the same thing for different reasons. I have gained from both. Thanks for bring to the table the concept.
