Bag Lady

The other day, while going through my suitcase, I realized how many purses I have. I didn’t think that I had many but there was enough in there to pass around to every woman in the neighborhood. Some of those purses I had forgotten that I had.

I have big ones and small ones. The small ones were purchases made to make me pack lighter. The more I put in my purse, the heavier it is. The heavier it is, the more pain in my shoulders and back.

When my purse becames heavy, consumed with “stuff” I usually dump its contents out to see what I can eliminate in order that my load becomes lighter. I can easily dump the things that I don’t need to carry around on a daily basis. When I toss those things out, I ask myself why the heck am I carrying around all this ish? My purse becomes lighter. The stress in my shoulders and back dissipates.

I figured, if I can achieve this feeling of relief just by removing the load in my purse, what can happen if I remove the things in my life that are weighing me down?

And so it has begun…

I’m not trying to be a bag lady anymore. Carrying around all that ish like that, hurting my shoulders and back. Messing up my mind and preventing me from seeing the lighter side of life.

Drop them bags!

This is Jewells signing out…
