LIFE OPENS UP WHEN YOU DO!

#259


Life is like a road trip... enjoy each day and don't carry too much baggage.

Life isn't meant to be a struggle, and yet, most of us are dragging a substantial sack of rocks around with us everywhere we go. All our anger, resentments and past hurts are never far from our thoughts and actions. Isn't it getting heavy, hauling around all that extra baggage? Wouldn't you like to be relieved of this burden? Yes, you would..... 

Well, the question then is, who is making you hold on so tight to all these issues? Who is the boss of you? How is dragging such a heavy load helping you? Is it serving you today in any way? Years ago, perhaps, this was your protection.... never allowing anyone to take advantage. But today, is it still working for you? Today it is just a burden, excess baggage, not necessary for this journey of life. Why not check that baggage, you don't need it anymore. 

And just like that, the burden can be lifted. If you want to enjoy each day, then enjoy each day; the choice is up to you. However you think or act is a choice. Sometimes you just have to take a risk and do what you want to do. It is your life, your journey and you don't need permission to live it.

"It's hard to be clear about who you are when you are carrying around a bunch of baggage from the past. I've learned to let go and move more quickly into the next place." Angelina Jolie
