The sum of our lives is what makes us who we are, and perhaps the sum of what we cannot leave behind may be a part of why we don’t experience the lightness of just being?
My emotional backpack is stuffed with experiences of all kinds – they all add up and out comes the sum of me! I am at that age where i prefer to vision my backpack kind of like this:
When i move, i tend to go through my stuff and get rid of a lot of things that i don’t have any use for anymore, when i move on i am not really that good at doing the same. I take a look at myself, and while i wish i could blame my past, i know deep down that it is also a matter of how much i actually chose to keep carrying with me.
I have carried so much with me, for so many years, that it is actually hard to get rid of a lot of it. Seems it has grown on me and almost into me, and this cleaning will take a while! Looking at my life without a lot of it is almost scary, like i have grown dependant on things i would do much better without.
So – here’s to cleaning and getting rid of some crap – and another to doing without !
Let’s finally enjoy the lightness of just being, let’s do it together 🙂
Wish you all a great day !
