Do you know where you’re going to?
Do you like the things that life is showing you?
Where are you going to, do you know?
Do you get what you’re hoping for?
When you look behind you there’s no open door.
What are you hoping for, do you know?
People rushing in all directions.. in suits, in jeans, with suitcases, with child, deep in thought, talking on the phone… This is the scene at train stations, in airport terminals, bus terminals, shipping ports n docks.
Where are the people going? What are they thinking? Who are they meeting? How are they feeling? When will they arrive? Why there and not here? Why today and not tomorrow? Heavy luggage or light? Big bag or small? What’s in the bag? Why bring them? Are they bringing it back or giving it away?
Travel light.. in life or on vacation, it is wise to travel light. Why?
The journey is faster if the burden is lighter. It is easier to go up or down the stairs when your luggage is smaller. Luggage with wheels better in plain smooth path than rough uneven roads.
In life, travel light. Bring the essentials only. I discover that sometimes many things I brought along are excess baggage. I discover that they take up space for what I need more or they just plainly add weight to what I carry.
Leave your cares behind, regrets, anger, bitterness, disappointments, frustration.. they are excess baggage that you have to pay heavily in your travel .. the more kilos, the more fees. People with heavy baggage are weighed down by the past. They missed the present and worry about the future.
Today is another new day. What heavy load am I dragging with me? Time to leave them behind. What is preventing me from travelling light? Bitterness? Unforgiving spirit? Regrets? Are these essentials for going forward? What good is it to bring along the what-could-have-beens or the if-onlys? Can this turn back the clock and make things better?
What to do instead? Unload… discard the non-essentials… throw away the negatives… pack only the essentials. Move forward in faith, hope and love. Only these 3 last. And the greatest of these is love.
Love covers a multitude of wrongs. Love bears all things. Love is patient n kind. Today let me bring along love in my journey… Love God and love my neighbour.
