Tip of The Week: Call Yourself

Today’s Tip of the Week comes from our guest blogger Linde Belt.

Call your home answering machine. If you are out just “running around” or doing errands or out traveling for your pleasure or job, call yourself every hour or so. Leave a message where you are as well as where you plan on going. What time you plan to be home would be another good piece of information. If your car breaks down somewhere that has no cell service (lots of places in the south are this way) or something happens to you, then someone will know where to start looking. I know that some have a GPS on their car, which will help but a lot of us do not. If you have a cell and it is a true emergency then the police can locate the last tower that your cell  call came from.  Just call.

  1. I love this idea, but I have to admit it scares me a little too. The idea that we have to be so concerned with our where abouts all the time just in case the worst happens makes me wonder about the fate of the human spirit. How many of us are walking around with inner demons ready to surface? Is there no kindness left in the world? Will we ever truly be safe?

    I’m still calling home! Thanks for the tip.

  2. Thank you so much Linde for sharing your insights on knife fighting as well as this excellent safety tip. It’s been a pleasure having you as a guest.


  3. It was a wonderful opportunity for me. I truely enjoyed it and grew because of it. Thank you

    Stacey the hint was for self defense but it also works when our car breaks down especially somewhere where there is no cell service or if we are in a remote place and become ill. There are lots of reasons this could be a handy thing.

    I appreciate the opportunity!
