Carrying a heavy load of baggage is tiresome and frustrating. You hurdle through every day hoping it will eventually go away. You try new things, you focus on something brighter, but in the back of your mind you still hear and feel that throbbing… The throbbing that the past so effortlessly reminds you of day after day. Little things trigger it and off your mind goes into a tangent that can easily ruin your progress.

So why do we hold on to the things that hurt us? Why do we let the mistakes of our past and the hurt others bestowed upon us cloud the life we have moved on to live?

Is it possible to truly let those things go? Is it possible to not be a product of your own experiences? I think it is… In a way.
The baggage that we carry can be lifted, it can be altered and manipulated into something beneficial. It’s nearly impossible to just forget and let go… But we can take the baggage and apply it as a lesson. We can bedazzle and decorate the hell out of it and make it into something that allows us to grow.

We are not what happens to us. We are not the mistakes we have made. But we are a people of events, mishaps, triumphs and victories. They are the obstacles that give us each our unique character. They are layers that rest upon our divine core.

Learn to let go. Learn to take the good out of whatever comes and apply that to your person. Leave the bad behind as a lesson learned. Walk away from the bullshit.
It does nothing for you. Today is a new day. Perhaps the only day you have left. You are a new person in every moment that passes. Embrace that. And don’t be the baggage you carry. Be the person you want to be.
On that note… This is me walking away 😉

    Ah yes, the baggage that you bring into your presence has a life of it’s own. It traps you in a time warp convincing you that you and your surrounds will never change. Everything will always be the same as before and you will fight your battle forever. Truth is; that’s bullshit! If you can’t find a way to leave your past behind you than you will become your baggage and you will repeat your mistakes for the rest of your time. If that is how you want your life to be keep letting it continue. If you want change you have to be the change.
    Easier said than done. But everyone has their limits

    • Agreed! We always want our surroundings to change but the effort on our end is lagging… The truth is that it can all be changed within moments… With a change in perspective. We are the creators of our lives…. All we need to do is remember that when times are hard.
