OK...I know I'm weird...so no need for those of you who want to come here and have a pop at me to bother
For those who are unfamiliar with the term 'nesting' it's as follows.
Normally associated with pregnant women, the 'nesting' kicks in just before birthing, usually a few days. What happens is...women start cleaning,
mowing the lawn, decorating, extra shopping in the extreme. They do this because their 'instinct' tells them that everything has to be in place and
in tip top order as when baby arrives there will be no time to maintain or keep on top of these 'jobs'. They will have to devote themselves to baby
and take care of themselves to be at their best for the new life.
As I said it is not exclusively a female phenomenon, or to pregnancy.
So the reason I ask is because for the last week or so, I have been experiencing this 'nesting' and responding to it to some degree. My logic
however kicks in and keeps telling me to chill and calm down. But behind the 'chill logic' (no I am not pregnant!) there is this instinct which
tells me I must 'nest'. But also, when I go along with it (nesting) there are some 'jobs', like decorating (I am attacking my sons bedroom today)
which says...why are you bothering? When SHF will it matter?
It has started to bug me. If you want to re-classify this 'nesting' as preparedness, then I have done as much as my finances will allow, and have
unfortunately had to 'dip into' some of my preparedness stuff, so have fallen behind. Urrrrgh!
Logic also tells me I am probably responding to all the geo-political/banking nonsense we are all facing. BUT my instinct is telling me there are
alternative solutions and I have started putting some into action, like making use of the mild weather and prepping my garden for even more food
production this year, arranging a meet up etc.
So why the conflict of logic v. instinct?
Coming here on this forum feeds the 'logic' side, but by the same token my 'instinct' then kicks in and I see that spendig time here is not
productive to either my logic or my instinct.
Our instinct when all said and done is what forewarns us, keeps us safe and keeps us one step ahead of 'the game'. The Game of course being the
3D 'logic', but my 'instinct' (some would call that 4D) is telling me "take your ball and don't play anymore." The 'ball' being my whole
world as it would be to a child.
So I think my instinct wins....I aint playing anymore....Call me petulant if you like....it really is water off a duck's back....I am taking my
