The First Sip
When in doubt, leave it and travel light.
Moving to Sydney from the States was (surprise, surprise!) a huge deal. My husband was given the opportunity to move for work and, we were excited for this new adventure!
And then the final day of packing arrived (the day before we left) and, we suddenly realized we didn’t have enough suitcases.
No way. No friggin’ way. And yet here we were, ready for our adventure and we were being weighed down by 8, no 9, suitcases.
Traveling with 9 suitcases is heavy; both literally and figuratively. It is just stuff and yet for some reason, we couldn’t eliminate anything else.
There are most certainly items that are important to have, to lead a sustainable life and pursue your passions. For instance, for me, I would have never chosen to leave my yoga gear or my camera items behind. And of course, not my wine bottle stoppers. ;-) And in that way, most certainly the items you possess are important. But they are not you. They do not define who you are. When you can define items as being “outside” of yourself, it makes it easier to let go.
