Today is the end of August and so is the official end of summer . . . sorta. Where did the time go?
It seems like only yesterday I was hemming and hawing over whether to de-winterize or not and now I am staring down having to winterize Wanda in just over a month.
The key is to enjoy the time we have now as we find ways to build for the future. When dealing with building for the future you need to be prepared for good or bad.
It is always preferable to build for the happy, sunny, smiling, rainbows and unicorns future . . . but there be monsters and creatures in the world at large, so you have to be prepared for them as well.
Okay, so maybe that was a stretch of a metaphor, but you get the idea. Bad things happen whether we want them to, or are prepared for them or not.
So when building for the future, it would be wise to be prepared for an ill turn of events. This is prudent for anyone but especially for those with people who depend on them.
I choose to build for the future and do it in a way to make sure that my dream of a homestead, and town, will come true no matter what.
If I have to behave a bit like a ‘prepper’ in order to do that, I will. I choose to see the good in the world, I choose to envision a good future, I also choose to work towards that future.
I just plan to do it wisely and be ready to beat off a monster or two along the way.
As always: Keep your head up, your attitude positive, and keep moving forward!
