Simple Survival Tips - Leave A Note

Original Article

If nobody knows where you are, how you plan to get there, where you are headed once you reach your destination and how long you plan to stay, you could find yourself in a very dangerous situation.

Shifts are strange, at times they benefit us, sometimes they harm us and sometimes they can all but destroy us.  Some our subtle and some are massive and even tiny shifts can cause massive change over time.  The only constant in [...]
