Appreciating what you have.

When out in the field, you really learn to appreciate the things that many people take for granted. Things like, showers, beds, hot food, cell phones, sleep, etc. Being out in the field and living off of nothing more than just what you can carry on your back really teaches you to appreciate the little things in daily life. I can only imagine what it feels like to be deployed for 6 months to a year at a time! You would be surprised how well off you could be though if you learn to consolidate. Showers turn in to baby wipes, 8 hours o sleep turns into 4, beds turn into sleep systems (sleeping bags and a foam mat), daily water supply turns into 2 canteens, daily meals turn into MRE’s (meals ready to eat), and your closet turns into a rucksack (large backpack).

  1. I don’t know how it would be having to deal with little to nothing that’s why I’m appreciative of everything I’m given. Its almost like being a child that has nothing and is looking to find something better. But once one learns to appreciate the things they have, they’ll know it can be taken away with a snap.
