As the old saying goes, "Experience is the best teacher." And true enough, through experience, I've learned who are worth letting go and what are worth holding on to. We invest so much in people, situations and feelings (so much of it actually) - a reason why excess baggage is an inevitable part of life. Most of us have a habit of holding on to certain things (a lot of times, the bad ones) for too long. It's not healthy for us (rather, it is destructive) and soon, it will be too much to carry. Life isn't meant to be lived in pain or in sorrow. If you keep this up, you'll find yourself down in a darker place.
Live, love and let go (of everything that makes you feel like shit) – essentials to a liberating, fruitful, and happy life. When the day comes that time has healed all your (emotional) wounds, you'll realize that dealing with excess baggage is a matter of forgiveness. For the things you wished you haven't done (regrets and what if's), for the mistakes that you've committed, learn to forgive yourself. And for all the people and tribulations that have caused all your hurt, just forgive. Because forgiveness is freedom. (30)
As you can see, I'm flaunting my newest luggage from Saxoline Philippines. They gave me a hand-carry size which is perfect for those short-term trips. Since I know I can't put everything in it, I need to be conscious of the things that are only important for me to bring when traveling. However, when it comes to my styling work, I use it for my accessories like belts, necklaces, bangles and bracelets, earrings and other trinkets.
