I’m amazed at how my sudden desire to move again hasn’t wrecked my nerves! I’m sure it has nothing to do with my naturally calm-demeanor (insert sarcastic grin here), but everything to do with the peace God promises according to Phil. 4:7.
Over the last few weeks I’ve gone through a lot of my clothes, jewelry, shoes, and stuff. I’ve had an overwhelming urge to just chunk it all and start from scratch…a new beginning for a new year if you will.
Now that may seem like the lazy way to pack, but hear me out. There’s nothing like moving to help you realize how much unnecessary junk you’ve collected over the years. So yes, I’m ready to let it all go!
That said, perhaps you too have accumulated a lot of junk that your next destination could do without…I’m not talking tangible baggage here either….Baggage is heavy and I guarantee if you are holding onto a bunch, it is the very thing preventing your move to the next level.
I’m just saying, chunk it! Yes, we have all been through something…some worse than others, but what I’ve come to realize lately is my constant rehearsing of the events I can’t change is only going to prevent me from moving forward…in relationships, in family, in life…period.
I’m tired of looking back…tired of looking through old stuff attempting to salvage things that have no place in my present or future.
Regardless,today I’m serving notice to the not-so nice things I’ve uncovered about myself: I’m traveling light from now on.
