Think if you wil..

I wonder if there is a person who lives a self-sufficient life. We, sometimes, depend so much on others. Sometimes we have to depend on others for something that we want, i.e., we want something which is for someone to provide, we keep looking up to them but the answer is ‘Nay, it’s not the right time.’ Have you ever looked deep into the eyes of a needy beggar? Have you noticed the questioning looks on his face? What happens when you refuse him? Do you notice anything at all or have you too been busy with your own self? It is for you to think.

Very few people are self-sufficient these days, at least here in the United States. The previous generation raised their own food, beef, pork, lamb, chicken, eggs, turkey, fruits, veggies, milk, butter, even cheese. My mother did that, until she got older and it was cheaper and more convenient to buy at the store. Preserving food in the freezer, in cans, drying fruit, etc.

I dare say, if some HAD to be self sufficient like that again, they wouldn't have a clue how to start.
I never liked that kind of life, but I learned a lot about it.

Where we live I cannot grow of have a garden or livestock. But I do shop wisely, buy what's in season, buy in surplus, freeze for later, stock up on necessities in case of disaster, whether natural, terror, health.
