Inspire Moment #112: Mental Baggage: Carry-On or Check it?

When we travel we have the option of checking our bags at the airport or carrying them on the airplane with us.  Upon arrival at the airport if our carry-on is oversized, we’re forced to check our bag.  Like a suitcase overfilled with clothes and shoes, our mind can be overfilled with thoughts.  Our lives are packed with appointments, activities, obligations, etc. and all of these generate thoughts.   Just as we can leave our baggage with an Attendant, wouldn’t it be great if you had an Attendant you could leave your mental baggage with? (worry, troubles, concerns, resentment, anger, etc.)

001The Attendant I trust in is God.  You may have a different Attendant, but if you don’t consider the benefits of having one.   Imagine being able to leave your cares, worries, anxieties, troubles, at the feet of an Attendant who will care for them on your behalf?

When my mental baggage begins to overflow I turn to Matthew 6:25.  “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink, or about your body, what you will wear.  Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes?”

Regardless of where you find your inspiration, letting go of the mental baggage can help lighten the load, bring you peace and comfort, and allow you to fly care-free.

Inspire Moment #107: The Onion

Life is like an Onion…

Like the layers of an Onion, in Life you never know what chapters or layers might cause you to cry and tear up.  Some layers are thin while others are really thick.  Heck, that’s what happens when you peel an Onion, you cry!

So let me ask you this, if it’s OK to cry through the different layers of an Onion, how can you allow yourself to cry through different chapters in your Life?  Some chapters are much easier than others, while some seem like they take forever and get much harder as the days go by.  Other layers of life are a breeze, almost like the first layer you peel back of the Onion.  No sweat, that was easy!

Inspire Moment #107 is to help you give yourself a break and cry if you have to!  No matter how many layers you have to peel or tears you cry, I promise it’s all worth it.  Because when it’s all said and done, the more layers you experience the more flavorful your life will be!
