Let go of that Baggage!
A Lady is patiently sitting on a bench waiting at the bus stop. Her name is Mary.
She has been waiting for the bus for a while.
A passerby asks Mary “How often does the bus go by?”
Mary says “Every 10 minutes”.
I ask because I noticed that you have been sitting here for a long time.
“Why are you still here?”
Mary looks up, sighs wearily, and points to a sign, that says, “ NO carry on allowed”.
The problem, Mary sighs, “Is that I have all this baggage with me.”
The passerby asks, “What is in your baggage that you cannot leave behind?”
I have all these memories and thoughts that I cannot let go off; my ex, my past jobs, the house I lost in foreclosure, thoughts of friends who deserted me when I had no job; bad relationships, lost confidence.
The passerby reflects and says to Mary “But those are all in your past the bus takes you forward you need to leave that baggage behind.”
Mary sighs heavily and says “But it’s hard to let go of the past!”
We can all relate and feel Mary’s pain. We all have baggage.
It’s what we do with that baggage that reflects on who we are and how we move forward and the life we will live.
We need to have faith and let go of the fear. We need to find new faiths, relationships and friendships.
We need to leave the baggage behind that keeps us from moving forward
Hold your faith Let go of your baggage, leave it behind, let it go.
Get on the bus and move into your future
Original idea from Sister Mae I
