“People are here because they’ve got baggage. I’m talking curbside-check-in, pay-the-fine-’cause-it’s-over-fifty-pounds kind of baggage. Get it?” Lauren Kate
For those of you who have not traveled with me, I do not travel light. My suitcase is filled to the brim. I am ready for every ” you never know” and “what if” scenario.
The familiar heavy load of baggage is comfortable for me. I carry an extra fold up suitcase for even more stuff. I have learned how to maneuver with a lot of baggage.
For the past three weeks, I have lived out of a suitcase. I wonder why I pack so much stuff. Is it just things I might need? Is it also memories, feelings and attachments? Do I carry too much of that around as well?
I am always dumping my suitcase out on the bed to find what I am looking for. I constantly find myself digging through things I don’t need or what should have been left behind a long time ago.
The airlines have gotten tired of dealing with other people’s excesses. Do I need to keep paying for my baggage? Shouldn’t I be tired of it also? How much is it worth to me to carry all this baggage around?
Maybe it is time for me to carry just what I really need. Maybe all we need is the basics to leave room for the new things in life.
Only carry basics Keep eye and head Open for the new It will change u….for the good
