Unpacking your Baggage.
Today we returned home from a great weekend trip with family. As with most trips it was so nice just getting away from the day to day routine. Coming home from those trips means unpacking, yuck. Over the past few years, when I return home from a trip I immediately unpack my bags. It is so nice getting reorganized quickly in order to be prepared for non-vacation life. Procrastinating the unpacking process is definitely a metaphor for dealing with mental baggage too. When we hang onto our mental baggage, these problems linger and often times become bigger and more chaotic. It is important to clean up our mental baggage before it starts to pile up and stink. Having the courage to deal with problems head on will lead to a healthier and more productive you. It may even lead to more vacations with people you love, resulting in excellent unpacking skills. Are you good at unpacking your problems?
