I was thinking that we all have baggage that weighs us down, that we carry unnecessarily, preventing us from moving on to the next step. I know I sure did, when I was coming up with excuses as to why I couldn't exercise or eat right, and I only got on the right path once I let go of them. Those weights we carry are so heavy and exhaust us, and with anchors on the brain recently, I was thinking that we need to find ways to just drop them, so we can spend our energy on the things that really matter. At first, I didn't like the metaphor, because it seemed like it was about losing the anchor/weight. Then I realized that it really wasn't, but more about using it to secure a much better place in life. Anyway, I don't know if that makes sense or not, but I'm going to leave it there. I'm tearing up as I write this, and I need to compose myself for the rest of the afternoon at work. Hope this resonates with at least a few of you.
