Bloom Where You’re Planted
Prepping for People Who Don’t Live on a Homestead in the Boondocks
I’m so glad you’ve decided to take your family’s preparedness and well-being into your own hands. Maybe you have a lot of questions. Maybe it feels like you have to be living out in the boondocks, raising your own chickens and grinding your homegrown wheat (off-grid, of course) in a destination 499 miles from the nearest city of over 100,000.
For most of us, this is not a realistic pursuit. It might be a nice dream, but it isn’t exactly easy to achieve. Many of us still go to work. Our kids are in school. We have elderly parents who don’t want to move.
One of the biggest mistakes I see preppers making is waiting until they get to their perfect “retreat” before they put their preparedness plans into action. I’ll tell you right now that this is going to end very badly when a disaster strikes and those folks are stuck in suburbia or the city, totally unprepared.
Years back, I had a mug that I picked up in a thrift store. On it were the words, “Bloom where you’re planted.” Sadly, the mug broke during a move, but the words stayed with me. I loved that philosophy then and I love it now. We aren’t always put where we want to be, but we do have the choice of making the very best of where we’re put.
And that is what this course is all about. I want you to become as prepared as you possibly can where you are living right this very instant. I don’t want you to be stuck in a perpetual cycle of waiting for everything to be “perfect.”
- I want you to do what you can in your specific budget.
- I want you to store what you can given the space you have available.
- I want you to be cleverly self-reliant where you live right now.
- I want you to look at your home in a brand new light.
- I want you to create networks in your neighborhood.
Here’s what you can expect from this course.
Every five days, you will receive an assignment. I’m not going to ask you to go out and spend money. I’m just going to ask you questions that will help you develop a clear picture of where you are, what your weak points are, and what your assets are. Every week, you’ll end up with a list of things you need to work on.
What you’ll need
You can go about this three different ways.
- You can print everything off for a Bloom binder.
- You can save the PDFs as word documents, enable editing, and fill them in on your Microsoft Word program.
- You can grab a spiral notebook and write down your questions and answers in that.
You do NOT have to have a printer to get the most out of this course. You don’t need any special supplies or technical skills.
