Letting go of our baggage

Have you ever woken up in the morning feeling less than fabulous? Have you ever thought that something was holding you back from the life – physically, spiritually, or emotionally – that you wanted?

Sometimes the things that hold us back from living the life we seek are the “baggage’ that we carry around with us. This baggage can consist of habits, negative thoughts, or personality traits that may have worked once for us but now keep us from that which we truly want.

It is like walking around dragging a bag of potatoes – day after day. It may not be a problem at first but it is not long before the potatoes begin to stink and the weight of carrying them around wears us out.

It might be time to look within and identify those “potatoes”. Once we know what is holding us back, we can ask our Higher Power to help us rid ourselves of them. When we do this we will feel a new freedom and a greater connection to Spirit. It will be like the “weight of the world” was removed from our shoulders.
