packing your bags

I’m going away on a short trip next week.

So one of the questions I’ve been asking myself is what I need to pack.

What do I need?

Not just what might be useful, what might be nice to have, what do I need?

We can justify taking almost anything along with us, just in case. But do we actually need them? Is there a real chance they will get used?

It got me thinking about the larger concept of things we own, a particular focus of mine over the last year or so.

How many things do we own just in case we might use them in the future? How many things are we holding on to?

Things that take up space, take up our attention, weigh us down and cause us to worry.

Treat life like one long journey. How many things do you really need to pack?
