"Did you ever notice that the first piece of luggage on the carousel never belongs to anyone?" Erma Bombeck
Life can get weighty at times. On any given day, at any given moment, you've got problems. You've got pressures. You've got all sorts of stuff that gets you down, unpleasant things you wish you didn't have to deal with. Things you need to handle; things that drive you crazy; one heavy load after another.
Think about the load you're probably toting around right now. All the stress you're dragging around. All of the troubles are you're carting all over the place. The hassles, worries and anxieties that feel like a 200 pound weight strapped to your back.
Wouldn't you dearly love to unload all of this excess baggage - and relax just a little? Maybe even relax a lot. And feel as light as a kite soaring in the heavens above. You can do it. But there's a catch.
You've got to check this baggage at the door. And leave it there.
"The only real obstacle in your path to a fulfilling life is you, and that can be a considerable obstacle because you carry the baggage of insecurities and past experience." Les Brown
I want you to take a moment and reflect on the excess baggage in your life. Think about the load that presently weighs you down. Think about the bad experiences that continually haunt you. Think about the difficulties, worries and concerns that are stuck in your craw - and stuck in your mind.
Think about all of the things that trouble you virtually every day.
Think about the dead weight you are dragging around. Stuff you don't like, stuff you don't want, stuff that hangs like an albatross around your neck. It's certainly not good stuff or stuff that makes your life one bit better. In fact, it's a big glob of rotten stuff that seriously erodes your joy, happiness and quality of life.
What kind of toll have these things extracted from you? And how much more will they siphon off? Then answer this one question: how much longer, how much farther are you willing to keep dragging them?
"Simplicity is making the journey of this life with just baggage enough." Charles Dudley Warner
Be honest, with all of the other things you've got going, do you really need to be toting around any additional weight? Of course you don't. You want to be happy, healthy, and full of fun and excitement and passion. You want to live life like it was meant to be lived. And that means unloading this mess as soon as possible.
OK, sounds good, but how do you get rid of it once and for all?
Ready? Then here goes: the only way to eliminate the weight is to, quite frankly, lose it. Lose it all. Lose it now. Unload it. Purge it. Eliminate it from your system altogether. Get rid of the bad thoughts. Get rid of the bad memories. Get rid of the burdens that have haunted your soul. Not some of them; all of them. And do it right now,
Then immediately start focusing on all of the good things you can accomplish without all of that excess baggage.
"The scientific theory I like best is that the rings of Saturn are composed entirely of lost airline luggage." Mark Russell
As soon as you dump the unwanted baggage, turn your back and walk away. Leave it behind. And never turn back. Get away from the pressures. Break away from the hassles. And escape into a lightness, a freshness, a newness you never thought possible. A life filled with possibilities. A life filled with opportunities. The life you've been searching for.
With the weight finally gone, you can zero in on your promising future; on where you want to go. On the things you want to accomplish. On what you want to make of your life - and ultimately become.
The Bottom Line: Get rid of the excess baggage. And go get the life you deserve.
