"Ending 2020 on Positive"
😱 It is likely that for most of the population 2020 will go down as one of the worst years ever (I was originally going to add the caveats “well unless you had a baby or got married”…but for so many people that did have those life events they were juxtaposed with missing family and friends).
🔥 No matter what side of the spectrum you’re on politically or socially or economically…2020 was a dumpster fire.
🧐 And since there are thousands of videos about the horror show of 2020, I wanted to try to come up with an overarching positive. Not just a small victory or a passing positive like learning how to make bread, or discovering TikTok (it really is quite entertaining), or finishing every puzzle in the house (bonus points for all of the puzzles that were 3D and called Legos :-)) but a broad positive theme.
🥳 After spending a couple of weeks thinking about it, it finally came to me…2020 was the year of the Non-Prepper
🤩 This was the year that people who disregarded or ignored emergency preparation in the past, recognized its importance and got to it. This was the year people who knew about emergency preparation took it to the next level. Plans were made, gear was bought…if it could be found. There were supply shortages, food shortages, money shortages. Hair clipper and color shortages, there was a little something to really wake up everyone.
🙋♂️ Many people in the preparedness community talk often about preparedness as a lifestyle. Not so much about everyone being a “Prepper” but about everyone thinking of how to make themselves, and their families, and their communities, more resilient. In the hustle and bustle of everyday life, lots of things seem to be priorities, but maybe grabbing some extra canned food can start to occupy some of that brain space reserved for Candy Crush.
🙅♂️ Recency bias dictates that people will focus on the most recent events in their lives and forget or deprioritize events or lessons learned in the past. This is one of the big reasons people don’t prepare for disasters “It’s never happened to me,” “I don’t remember it being that bad,” “it doesn’t happen here that often”. The silver lining to 2020 is that now everyone has experienced the effects of a disaster…recently…and with hot water and Netflix. Now is the time to take the preparedness tasks that we’ve been doing and learning over the last few months as a society…and make them a lifestyle.
🤓 It’s time to prepare for the disaster that could happen and cause you to lose water, or power, or both, for days or weeks. It’s time to prepare for the disaster that destroys roads and bridges so you can’t get out of town and supplies can’t be driven in. It’s time to prepare for the disaster where your cell phone can’t get service and Netflix isn’t an option.
