It’s a new month and a new theme. I was going to say that the theme would be “getting rid of stuff,” but to stay with the idea of accentuating the positive, I will focus, instead, on letting go, lightening the load, becoming free of attachments. I did a pilgrimage in Spain in April and every item that went into my backpack was essential to the journey. Many items I once considered necessary were left behind. A pilgrimage is like a little slice of life where lessons learned along the way are really life lessons. They apply to my everyday walk. If I can just let go of the things that are slowing me down and impeding my progress, my journey will be much more enjoyable. So, here we go. I’m going to lighten my load this month.
