Are You Prepared for an Emergency?

It seems that no matter where you live, there are a variety of storms prevalent in the various areas that we spend most of our daily living.  Whether you live in tornado alley, coastal areas that are threatened by hurricanes, places with ice and snow storms, instances of forest and house fires, or even if your car breaks down in the boonies, you need an emergency kit!   emergency kit

Having an emergency kit that is packed and ready to go in case of an emergency or sudden evacuation is something we all should have on hand and ready to grab on short notice.  Many of us realize how important planning for an emergency is, but sometimes we put ‘the planning part’  on the back burner hoping “it won’t happen to me.”

Why not give yourself a little bit of peace of mind by taking charge in advance of an emergency, by packing a kit that is ready to grab quickly if the need arises to make a quick departure.  You can make a kit for each member of your family and store them in a closet for easy access.  Here are some helpful tips to consider when making emergency kits for your family.

It’s All in the State of the Mind

It’s All in the State of the Mind

If you think you are beaten, you are

If you think you dare not, you don’t

If you think you’d like to win, but can’t,

It’s almost a cinch that you won’t.

If you think you’ll lose, you’ve lost

For out in the world you’ll find

That success begins with a fellows will

It’s all in the state of mind…

Think big and your deeds will grow

Think small and you’ll fall behind

Think that you can and you will

It’s all in the state of mind..

Life’s battle doesn’t always go

To the stronger and faster man

But sooner or later, the man who wins

Is the fellow who thinks he can.
