Hello, fantastic listeners, and welcome back to the Prepping Positively Podcast! I'm Annie Lewellyn, your guide to a more self-reliant and fulfilling life. Now that we've decluttered our homes and embraced the fresh start of the new year, it's time to dive into the exciting world of planning for better self-reliance in 2024!

You know that feeling of a clean, organized home? It's like a blank canvas, ready for the masterpiece of self-reliance. So, grab a notebook, a cup of tea, and let's make some plans!

First things first, let's create a list of self-reliant skills you'd like to learn in 2024. Whether it's mastering the art of preserving food, becoming a DIY cleaning wizard, or diving into the world of home remedies, jot it all down. This list is your roadmap to a more self-sufficient you!

Now that you have a list of the things you want to do and the skills you want to learn, let's break it down. 

What do you want to accomplish in the realm of self-reliance this year? Perhaps you aim to create a fully stocked prepping pantry, complete with homemade goods. Or maybe you're keen on honing your gardening skills to grow your own fresh produce. The possibilities are endless!

Be sure you list everything you can think of as if time and money were not issues. It is ok not to accomplish them all. This is just a guide to give you some direction going forward in your self-reliant journey.

Now that you have a list, let's narrow them down a bit.

Consider setting achievable milestones. Want to master the art of homemade cleaners? Start with a couple of basic recipes and gradually expand your repertoire. Small steps lead to significant strides in self-reliance.

Now, let me sprinkle some suggestions your way! How about dedicating a weekend each month to a specific self-reliant project? January could be all about crafting your own candles, while February is perfect for diving into the world of homemade bath and beauty products.

Just think about the skills you want to learn and set aside some time to do them.

Let's not forget the joy of community in 2024! Reach out to like-minded individuals, join local groups, or connect online with folks who share your passion for self-reliance. The exchange of ideas and experiences is invaluable on this journey.

You never know what someone else may be willing to share or teach to you! Community is a great way to learn new skills and meet new friends on the way.

As we embark on this year of self-reliance, remember that the journey is just as important as the destination. Celebrate your successes, learn from your challenges, and savor the satisfaction of becoming more self-sufficient with each passing day.

Thank you for joining me on this planning adventure for a self-reliant 2024. I'm Annie Lewellyn, reminding you that every step you take toward self-sufficiency is a step towards a brighter and more empowered future. Until next time, stay positive, stay prepped, and embrace the joy of planning for self-reliance! See ya next Monday!
