What is baggage and how does it apply to your life?

Baggage is defined as personal packed in suitcases for traveling luggage; past experience or long-held ideas regarded as burdens and impediments, (Agnes 2018).

Baggage is that unnecessary crap that we carry around with us daily. Baggage is all the pains of the past. Baggage is all the hurt, all the betrayal, all the misfortune, all the would have, should have, could have, but you didn’t situations.

So, how does baggage apply to your life? Baggage applies because many of us are carrying around disappointment, resentment, anger, and we can not grow! We are hindering our own growth because we refuse to let go of the negative energy that consumes our minds!

Understand, that the baggage you carry around, is detrimental to your life, it hinders you from your purpose.

Ask yourself what you are holding on to? Ask yourself why are you carrying it around? How much emotional baggage are you carrying? How much physical baggage are you carrying? Why are you allowing anything negative to hinder you from your purpose? If you don’t think that you are, maybe we need to have a one on one session, because everybody has room for improvement!

How hard is it to carry all that negative energy around with you? Aren’t you tired? All that stress, all that anxiety, all that depression, all that hate in your heart. You are hindering your own growth if you do not deal with the pains of your past! You will not grow into what you are destined to become!

Life seems like an emotional rollercoaster sometimes! You can stop that! You are in control! You can change your approach, at any time. I dare you to let things go! You will not only feel better but you will start doing better! Life is what you make of it!

If life gives you lemons, then you should make lemonade. You have to find the good in everything! Be thankful you got those lemons, some of us got rotten eggs!

I encourage you to let go of the baggage that is hindering you from your purpose!  Let go of all the negative feelings, all the negative energy, anything negative that hinders you from growth you need to let it go! You were born for a purpose, find it! Stop letting the baggage you carry stop you from that purpose!


“Be simple, don’t carry the baggage of the past, open your hands, and let it go”

 Debasish Mridha

“You can’t possibly embrace that new relationship, that new companion, that new career, that new friendship, or that new life you want, while you’re still holding on to the baggage of the last one. Let go… and allow yourself to embrace what is waiting for you right at your feet”

 Steve Maraboli
