I was packing my clothes for a journey and I knew whichever cloth I didn’t take means I no longer need them. While at it, I saw some very nice gowns and tops, I really loved them when I used to wear them, now I don’t wear them anymore but I find it hard to just let them go. They’ve been in my wardrobe since forever and I don’t wear them. They’re just taking up space there. 

I also saw some very nice clothes, but I couldn’t take them along for the journey because I knew I wouldn’t be needing them. They were not fit for where I’m going. I mean they’re really good clothes, but not fit for the journey. 

I had to be strong to let go of these clothes, I won’t be disposing of them all though, I’ll give them out for charity. It took a lot of strength for me to let go of them o. I’m sure I’m not alone in this… 

There are certain things in your life that you should let go of. There are friends you won’t be needing anymore. They are good friends, very good ones, but for the next phase of your life, you do not need them.

There are habits that have been part of you and you go along well with them, but for the journey you’re embarking on, you have to let go of them, you can’t afford to take them along anymore. 

As you move on in life, you’re supposed to grow out of some things, grow out of some habits, leave some people behind because they do not fit into the place you’re going. 

Most of the clothes I talked about earlier are very nice, but if I should take them along to where I’m going, I won’t be able to wear them because I would be embarrassed, and they will end up being trash for me. It’s better if I just leave them behind now, so I wouldn’t have to carry extra baggage. 

How much extra baggage are you carrying? You do not need them but you find it hard to let go. You love them so much but they would be disastrous to the next phase of your life. Why not leave them behind? Why not brace up and let them go? 

As this is the beginning of a new year, there is some baggage you should have left with last year, and if you didn’t, it’s still not too late now, you can still leave them now before you go deep into the year with them. Learn to leave some baggage as you move on in life. Let go!
