Put Down That Baggage

When is time to get rid of the baggage? ….when it weighs you down, when it distracts you, when you don’t even remember where you got it. Is that when it’s time? OR when the thoughts of it cause your body to cringe in it’s place. OR stay in bed, OR give in on yourself. How about when the burdens created by having it outweigh the good you want in your life!!?

I’m not talking about STUFF. I’m talking about the thoughts, feelings, ideas the stuff that can suffocate your growth. I’m talking big baggage, old baggage, baggage from childhood, from your last romantic relationship, from girlfriend friendships gone bad, from broken dreams and lost promises. THAT baggage.

Are you carrying around any self-righteousness, conceit, negativity, ignorance, anger, upset?

Are you going on and on about She said, He said, They did, blah blah blah.

Is it time to let all that go? Do you want to be free from the bondages they have on you? Do you want to live life in a new way? Embrace joy? Own passion? Express excitement?

Eyes wide open with the baggage you carry. Hearts longing for something new.

Let it all go. You will be different. Most of all, you’ll breath with a smile on your face and love in your heart. Youre not who you were yesterday. No longer living the way you did. Are you ready to give up your old ways? Put the baggage down? Stop the drama about all of it? Be prepared to live enlightened, redeemed, humbled, grateful, & positively happily content.

You may not be as popular, needed, admired… well not in the WORLD anyway. But you will be HAPPILY JOYFULLY FREE in YOU….. And that my friend….. is really what matters most.

Your God Girl,

Tracy

 

The Broken Heart Diet

THE BROKEN HEART DIET

(NOTE: THIS IS THE FIRST IN A SERIES OF MIND-NUMBING, HEART-MENDING RECIPES THAT MAY GROSS YOU OUT BUT WILL DEFINITELY HELP YOU FEEL BETTER)

It’s been good… better than good. It’s been great. You really like him. You think about him all the time. You can’t wait to kiss him, to sleep in his strong arms. You think he’s “the one.” You can’t imagine life without these moments, without this man.

He’s pulling away. He didn’t ask you out last weekend. He’s not jumping on your texts. He’s ghosting you. He wasn’t able to keep a stiffy the last time you had sex.

You are losing your appetite. You go to the gym A LOT to work off your vibrating angst.

He’s stopped using heart and rose emoticons. He’s stopped using emoticons altogether. You don’t have your kids this weekend, but when you ask him to sleep over he says, “I’m booked.”

You haven’t eaten since Monday, save for cigarettes and vodka. You work out two hours a day to feed the adrenalin-fueled anxiety whirling in your gut. Your friends compliment you on your weight loss. “You look great, P. Charlotte!”

You haven’t seen him in TWO WEEKS. He doesn’t return your texts at all. He’s stopped liking your IG and Facebook posts. You check his Facebook page (you’ve checked it every hour for the past two weeks). You’re not in any of his photos. There is a non-stop stream of hot, young Russian chicks named Svetlana, Katinka, or Tinkerbelle… There they are at The Hollywood Bowl, there they are at The Four Seasons, there they are at Esalen, there they are – naked in a hot tub.

No matter. You have a broken heart and you’ve lost forty pounds. You are down to your pre-baby weight. In fact you’re down to your elementary school weight.

Time to heal, sister. Time to enjoy some pornographic, heart-mending, mind- numbing comfort food, and feel better.

Time to go on the Broken Heart Diet.

 DIRECTIONS:

Simplify Your Life Bit By Bit

I think that we are always and forever looking for ways to simplify our lives. Make things easier so days and nights aren’t quite so hectic and life in general can just slow down a bit.

The reality of it though, is it’s just not reality.  Although,I do love this article on ways to simplify your life, even just picking a few of those things can help tone down the stress of the every day. I do quite a few of these and many we have discussed in blog posts prior…budget, meal planning, groceries… I think by picking just one or two and tackling those immediately you will begin to see the relief that it can bring. Then tackle another one or two and so on.  Do it on your time, but do it! There are so many things we can control to help simplify our lives.

What ways do you simplify your life?

 

Love to All-
