These last few weeks I have been struggling a bit with life in general. This weekend I spent some time soul-searching, scripture-searching, and just generally thinking. It occurred to me that self-reliance is more than just getting your finances and food storage in order. There is spiritual, emotional, and social self-reliance as well. And it occurred to me that in many ways I still have a long way to go toward being self-reliant.
So I’m going to start a project. Within a year I want to have a thoroughly mapped-out plan for personal self-reliance, and I want to have made significant progress in each area.
To kick it all off, I’m going back to the source. Well, one of them, anyway. Today I checked out Thoreau’s “Walden” from the library. It should be a good starting point, anyway.
So stay tuned. I’ll be posting more soon as I contemplate just what I’m getting myself in for here.
