Are you a 'bag' lady?

Posted on September 15, 2010 at 1:46 PM
Letting go of old baggage lifts me up


Note:  Some the content in this blog was inspired by a women's conference speaker some years ago.  I can't remember her name at this time but the content of the message stays with me to this very day.  I hope this message is helpful to someone. Peace and Blessings...dErica

How heavy are your emotional suitcases? Unzip one of them, and examine the bricks and rocks and logs that make up the load.
 
Some people lug so much hurt and anger with them wherever they go, it is truly amazing that they can lift and carry it all. 
Think of the wasted energy that has been used to carry this baggage.
 
Perhaps someone provoked you to anger in the past. Perhaps some disappointment festered into a large chip.  Or maybe you haul a load of kindling wood that can be used as fuel for others to ignite.  Letting go of baggage (grown children still in the home, abusive relationships, etc)   The Erykah Badu song ‘Bag Lady’ serves as a wake up call to women everywhere.  None of us are exempt.
 
Picture the constant frowns and contorted faces that are required to sustain the effort. Next time watch the face of someone struggling with a load or large package; over the years such frowns can become permanent.  Holding on to pain, hurt, anger and disappointment manifests itself in our bodies.  This load can also give you worries, and they can lead to sickness in the body, and other ugly pains. Let it go. Holding on won’t hurt the other person. It hurts only you.  When we spend our time focusing on negative people or experiences, we end up missing opportunities and blocking our blessings.  We cannot see the future because we are too busy living in the past.  Meanwhile, the perpetrators go on living their lives; oblivious to the hurt they have caused.
 
In the grand scheme of things, the only thing that is stopping us…is, US.   We have no control over what others do or say to us, but we can control our reactions.
 
The baggage is nothing to be ashamed of.  We all have issues. 
The shame is not having baggage, it’s KEEPING it.  So…
 
PACK LIGHT!!!
 
Love will make it better.

Neat blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download it from somewhere? A theme like yours with a few simple adjustements would really make my blog shine. Please let me know where you got your design. Thanks a lot

Have you ever thought about adding a little bit more than just your articles? I mean, what you say is valuable and all. However imagine if you added some great graphics or video clips to give your posts more, "pop"! Your content is excellent but with images and clips, this blog could certainly be one of the most beneficial in its niche. Good blog!

I want to show thanks to this writer just for bailing me out of such a setting. After checking throughout the online world and getting tips that were not powerful, I believed my entire life was over. Existing devoid of the strategies to the problems you have solved by way of your entire write-up is a crucial case, as well as the kind which might have in a negative way affected my career if I hadn't noticed your web page. Your own personal know-how and kindness in controlling all areas was invaluable. I'm not sure what I would have done if I had not come across such a solution like this. I'm able to now look forward to my future. Thank you so much for the professional and results-oriented help. I won't think twice to suggest your web blog to any individual who needs and wants direction on this subject.

I always look to the men’s section for graphic t’s! If you buy them in a few sizes larger than your own, they make great dresses that you can wear with tights and boots! I like to buy large graphic t’s and cut off the sleeves so I can wear them as tank tops!
