I will be 43 in a few months and I often reflect back through my life. In fact to be totally honest I spend WAY too much time reflecting back. I have many regrets and things that I would likely change if I could. The fact is I can regret all I want and wish as hard as I try but the past is what it is.
These 43 years has flown by. It is unbelievable. As a prepper I look to the future often and make numerous plans to prepare for…..whatever. So – I spend too much time thinking about my past and within the realm of preparedness I focus a lot of time in the future.
What about the present? What about today?
If have come to realize that I have got to spend more time on what needs to be done and experienced today. Whether it is going to eat lunch with my 8 year old or taking that camping trip THIS weekend rather putting it off again….I have got to place a greater emphasis on “now”. I need to take a look around before I miss something.
I worry that some day I will be a frail old man and will be thinking back to NOW and will have more regrets that I should have taken advantage the present. Knowing this I hope to change and spend more time placing an emphasis on today.
Oh, there is a knock at the door. Why are there a couple guys dressed in white holding a strange jacket at my door.
