Learn To Travel Light
What's happened in your past is not nearly as important as what is in your future.
Where you're going is much more significant than where you've been.
But if you stay focused on the past, you'll get stuck where you are.
This is the reason a lot of people don't have joy or enthusiasm for life.
They are dragging around all their negative baggage from the past.
Somebody offended them last week and they've got it stuffed in their resentment bag
Last month they lost their temper and said some things they shouldn't have said, they've got that stuck down their guilt and condemnation bag
Ten years ago they lost a loved one, they still don't understand it and so they've got that hurt and pain in their disappointment bag
They carry around their bags of regrets, all the things they wished they would have done differently.
Life is too short to live that way.

Every morning when you get up, first thing to do is to forgive all the people that did you wrong the day before and in the past; forgive your spouse for what they said
At the start of the day, let go of the disappointments, the setbacks, the hurts and the pains from yesterday.
Start every morning fresh and new
God did not create you to carry around all that baggage.
Let it go and move forward in the life of blessing He has in store for you
