Raising the Bar of Resilience by Doing the Stuff

by Todd Walker

When do you know when to raise the bar on Doing the Stuff?

Maybe you have a gut feeling. Or, by paying attention, you begin to realize that a rain barrel system may one day be more important for your family than the designer outfit at your local mall. Or you wake up to the fact that there’s a disconnect between all the fun and interesting preparedness articles online and actually Doing the Stuff. Or your I’ll-get-around-to-it got up and left.

Whatever the reason for not raising our personal bar on preparedness (I’m guilty too), let this short post serve as a friendly reminder/challenge to lift the bar up a notch.

What we value is defined by the action we take to obtain and keep stuff. If you value your relationships, you’ll act to spend time and energy to ensure they thrive. If you value money, you’ll act to earn and keep money. If you value being prepared, you’ll act and start Doing the Stuff!

If we stop raising the bar on our preps, do we really value prepping and self-sufficiency?

Here’s the thing…

We’re all caught up in the busy life. Doing the Stuff of preparedness sometimes gets pushed to the side by what others say we should value. That’s why it’s so important to re-focus our actions. Remember – our actions determine our values.

What do you value?

In other words, what actions are you taking to build resilience and preparedness?

Drop us a line in the comments if you’d like to share how you’re Doing the Stuff!

Also, If you’re a preparedness blogger and would like to join our blog hop, check out the details below.

Keep doing the stuff!

Be Prepared Blog Hop #6

Dirt Road Girl and I want to thank all of y’all for your encouraging messages, thoughts, and prayers this week. Y’all have been a real help! We’re gradually getting back into our routine.

This weeks featured post from our last blog hop was submitted by Food Storage and Survival:

Saving Onion Seeds

How to Save Onion Seeds!  Food Storage and Survival

Saving onion seeds might seem a little mysterious.  I’ve grown onions for years and never had them “go to seed” like my lettuce or spinach plants do.  That’s because like carrots, onions are biennial.

Be Prepared Blog Hop #2

September is National Preparedness Month. If you’re new to prepping, here’s a great way to help you keep doing the stuff of preparedness. Even if you’re an all-pro prepper, you’ll find value in what I’m about to share.

Some friends of mine who are preparedness bloggers have joined forces to bring you a weekly event called Be Prepared Blog Hop! Let me introduce you to my friends and your hosts:

Each Wednesday one of us will host the blog hop. You’ll see it on all our sites, though. That week’s host will choose their favorite post linked to the blog hop. Then all five of us will feature the chosen post on the social media site(s) of our choice!

If you’re a preparedness blogger and would like to share a post or three, please join the hop and help add value to the preparedness community!
