Most of us have our bag packed and ready to grab. Have survival knowledge. And, consider ourselves physically fit. And by “fit” I mean you fall into the normal “fit” criteria of eat right, get enough sleep, exercising and take vitamins and/or supplements.
vvvvrrrrrpppp … Stop the press! Think again. We are not as ‘fit’ or prepared as we think we are girly girls.
"Hey wait a minute!" you say.
Ever notice how coaches - albeit athletic, musical or otherwise, stress practice, practice, practice???
Key word? Repetition, doing something over and over.
Human nature tells us that because we have read all those books and have a bag packed that we are set, that we are prepared.
Well missy, if you are thinking just that, you are only fooling yourself into a false sense of security.
When was the last time you walked anywhere? No, to the bathroom to check your make-up does not count.
If you jump in your car every time you need to go to the store just around the corner you need to start walking there too. “But I have to carry groceries home” you moan. Duh??
I hate to throw this at you girly-girl … but you’re gonna be carrying far heavier things in your bug-out-bag than a couple of Walmart bags!!! In fact, you might want to purposely do all of your grocery shopping and walk home to build up your endurance.
Bugging out will be painful. Very painful.
If it’s raining out. Forget the umbrella. Forget the raincoat. Get out there and get wet. Really wet.
Keep in mind necessity is the mother of invention. You make things happen in the time of need.
Now get out there! And smile! Just sayin'.
