Is it better to be reactive or proactive about life?
This culture we live in is fairly reactive. We don't prepare for a lot of things, and while we aren't always harmed by this sometimes we are. On top of that, too often we make fun of those who do prepare giving them special nicknames to distinguish between us and them. Take for example "Doomsday Preppers." Everyone, or nearly, knows what I mean when I say this. Basically this term defines someone who is preparing for an emergency of extraordinary size, but it is meant in a derogatory way. I think because so often we, the culture, think nothing will actually happen.
There may be an extreme to being proactive, as there are extremes to everything, and everyone needs to find the point they are comfortable with. What I don't understand is how anyone can be comfortable with doing nothing. Plainly speaking, I know it's because they don't think that extraordinary event will ever really happen, but so often people don't even prepare for the things which are more possible.
What about tornadoes?
Or Super Storms?
I have a storm shelter for when tornadoes appear. I know people who carry guns in case someone attacks them. I have seen communities leave an area when a hurricane was approaching. There are so many choices out there, and we have to start choosing one before the event. Take a look at your life, your community, and start getting more information. Start taking steps to protect yourself. Start learning what is the best course of action for you and your family.
Don't wait and say, "I wish I had...." . Be proactive. It's too important not to be.
