5 days and the new journey begins.

Here is what hit me this weekend.

Packing up my things to move from one place to another and packing up my things to let them go are two entirely different experiences.

I find myself saying as I go through each item, I remember when...

I wore this to...

I first heard this song...

I got this picture....

I had this experience...

I met this person for the first time...

As hard as it is to let things go, the experience and the memory is really all we have to help us connect back to those special moments.

I am realizing as I prepare for this journey and letting go of almost everything, that while things are nice to have as a way to trigger the memory, emotions and help to re-connect, they are also just a way to try and hold onto time.

I am also realizing, the beauty is...as much as I would like to, I can't hold on or stop time. Things or no things, stuff or no stuff, memories are meant to be made and will stay in my soul forever, regardless of where the road may take me.

Be Well,
