When Prepping Gets Overwhelming, Here’s Something to Hang on To

What do you do when prepping gets overwhelming? And it can, no matter whether you’ve been prepping for three weeks or three years. Somebody else you know or have read about is doing so much better at it.

How do they do it? My guess is they instinctively follow the lead of a writer I read about recently. She got daily inspiration from a sign on her desk that said “Run your own race.” She knew there were other writers more accomplished, but she had to do what she could with her own drives and abilities and not get discouraged.

This is a good principle for us as preppers, too. Not all of us are blessed with the skills and resources we might like to have. I can guarantee you there are preppers who can run circles around me. But any of us doing something is better than nothing.

If you’re worried about running out of time before an economic collapse, terrorist attack, EMP, or other catastrophe, then do what you can, one day at a time.

There’s only so much you and I can control in our lives. The rest we must leave to God. So, prep at your own pace. And don’t give up.
