Survival mode



Preparing for hurricane Sandy, here on the Outer Banks, I'm concerned with only the essential. Frivolous things don't matter. I'm thinking of safety for myself, my family, my neighbors, and my pets. I'm not concerned with my bank account, the football game, or politics.

I already live a minimalist lifestyle, but now I'm thinking about taking it a step further.  If the storm took half of what I own, would I miss it?  Probably not.

Survival mode is no way to live your whole life, but it helps to put things in the proper perspective every now and then.

I hope everyone is safe.

  2. Take care Diane, I'm afraid your situation is more dire than mine, the brunt of the storm with possibility of snow, ice...yikes. Be safe and remember what matters most.

  3. We are doing the same. We live on the coast in a flood zone. You prepare the best you can and just ride the wave. :)
