As you have probably noticed from this post, I like to be prepared for things. I like to know that I’ll be able to handle whatever life is going to happen to me.
Stuck in a lifeboat because the ship was attacked by thieving pirate turtles? I’ll make sure I have the strength to fight and the resilience to survive that.
Getting old? I’ll figure out all the aspects and issues that I’ll face now, so I’ll know what to do then.
Living in the End Times? I’ll prep myself mentally, physically, and emotionally to be prepared for all of that! – biting scorpions, earthquakes, wars, and persecution.
The only problem with this extreme thinking, is that it takes a big chunk away from life right now. Instead of doing something because I want to, I’m doing it because it because something in the future might necessitate a grim outlook and a tough countenance.
