Get rid of the baggage
There is a song, Bag lady and it advises ladies to let go of those things accumulated for status. Well, sometimes it happens that we all carry unnecessary baggage and for nothing.
Depressed, disappointed, mad and everything in between is how we end up.
These are some of the feelings and emotions that I have gone through and I got to points where life could be unbearable. But I made it!
But, what doesn’t break you makes you stronger, right? Tell that to the birds is what I feel when anguished and going through such.
I have however learnt that life can break me only of I let it. Mettle against life.
But where am I going with this? I have arrived at a realisation that no day will ever be like the other and if so, life is boring.Away from the disappointments, there are days I’ve had immense victories and still, the mind has this way of telling me that it is a rough patch I am going through, worse than any I have faced before but not insurmountable. My heart says.
The reason I live is to see transformation, achieved dreams, a smile beyond mine and to look back and say I made it. Life will get you to breaking point but it can never break that which is malleable.
As the water remains on course despite the barriers, so my resolve is. The water will flow where it wills. At times this takes time but when it does break barriers, it breaks free and follows a course. Maybe earlier determined or making its own.
I am on this earth as an individual and for a purpose. Every moment I breath, I take in one more supply of my exhausting supply. But it is making that breath count that should matter. I am a constituent part of a community and do I play a part in edifying it or do I just say I belong without any tangible benefit?
We are called to community and this is why pulling others up is so important.
At times, our help doesn’t come from expected places and people. At times it comes from asses. If you know, Balaam and Balak, Saul-Paul conversion were because of a creature many would love to hate. At times it is from rocks and at times we need patience which moulds us. Patiently waited for things are the most enjoyed.
Patience tests the strongest of men and when I know that I can move from point A-B through some means, then patience is worn out and it becomes impossible. But it is the obstacles we encounter that make us grow stronger, better, unbreakable and impossible for life to beat.
And so today, my hope comes from the Lord who made heaven and earth.
Lord hold my hand and lead me home. Home is where the heart is.
