Lessons Learned From 2020 – Post Covid Reflections on the Past, Present and Future

Our lives changed. Our priorities changed. Many things we understood to be normal reality disappeared or became affected to such an extent that they became some weird dystopian version of their original form. Now, in May of 2021, I reflect on some of these changes and how the pandemic, and global reactions to it, affected my, my family’s and many others’ lives.
Many became impoverished, even homeless, due to restrictions enforced upon them and their jobs, businesses and livelihoods, while a tiny few prospered at insane levels to become the richest people in history. What will the future bring? Are we looking at some idyllic paradise or are we facing even more restrictions?
Health is the most important things you can have. It is the basis of all other thoughts and actions. But it can also be used as a weapon…

My name is Edward O'Toole and I live in one of the wildest, most beautiful parts of Europe, in the Carpathian Mountains of Eastern Slovakia. Life is an adventure - both physically and metaphysically... I've been living out here for the last 22 years, along with my wife, 3 kids and Jack Russell. My main interests involve bushcraft, prepping, survival and wilderness living (self-sufficiency and self-reliance), ecological, green, smart and natural solutions, motorcycles and motorbike club life, writing and art (I have 7 published books), and exploring the paranormal.
