Every time I hear someone say, “Why isn’t someone helping me?” I cringe and think, why aren’t they helping themselves? Nobody owes them anything, and the sooner they realize this, the better prepared they will be.
In today’s world, people stand at Soup Kitchens, talking on cell phones, wearing $100 dollar sneakers, waiting for free food someone else took the time to grow. Why? It is not hard to plant a garden. People do it all the time, so get your hands dirty. And while you’re at it, learn how to preserve for the winter.
Fishing is another way to obtain food for your family, If you live near a lake, river, or ocean, you have no excuse for not taking a day to fish. If small children can catch fish with nothing more than a can of worms and a pole, you can too.
If you have kids, take them with you. Kids love to do things with their parents when they are young, and fishing is a lot more fun than standing in line at a Soup Kitchen.
Today is the day to stop acting helpless.
