Throughout life, we collect bags and baggage that can weigh us down over time. We lift and heave the heavy bags for years and years, yet don’t realize we can drop those bags any time we desire. We can drop the baggage of life weighing us down.
Do you desire to drop all the bags that sit heavily in your arms, on your shoulders and back? It is up to you to shift the weight from your body and mind to be released and let go.
I realized while traveling these past few weeks that life is short and there are so many things we take for granted. I took notice that my parents are not as young as they used to be, although they can keep me on my toes at times. I noticed that my sisters have moved forward with amazing lives and their children have grown, with beautiful lives unfolding daily for them; their goals are amazing and dreams are forming and taking shape. I have realized that the weight I carried from the past year of work lifted when in the presence of those who love me unconditionally. They gave me the space to just sit, reflect, sleep, and relax without any demands of my time.
I sit at a place in my life that I know my life must change in order for me to drop the baggage that is sitting heavily on my shoulders and mind. My body cannot take the pressure of the weight much longer. There is so much more to life than work in a career that creates the bags to place on one’s body, yet no real solutions to remove them. I must remove myself from that place of continual pressure and shift those bags from on top of my body to the ground. I have no more energy to carry them, nor do I wish to waste my life doing so.
I understand the bags were created by my own choosing and my choice of career. I do not blame the decisions of others on my own unhappiness on carrying this weight, but must shift my thoughts and energy to removing the baggage one day at a time.
In a blink of an eye, life can change and the heart must be ready to withstand the changes. My heart is not open to change all the time as it complacent in routine. Yet, this routine has made my life mundane and has allowed the extra baggage to pile up and sit heavily upon me. I am at a place in my life, after traveling and seeing where I want to be, to shift and upheave the pressure to set it on the ground.
Life is too short to carry the weight of others’ dreams and wishes when the desires of my own heart are light and full of energy; pulsating strongly trying to break free.
With this, I release and let go! I release and shift. I release and all is balanced in my space. My body is floating free of the weight and pressure, for this is my desire. Let the changes begin now!
