The 22 pound back-pack which I am carrying around wherever I go is an amazing tool. It is supposed to teach me that taking things personally is a heavy burden. It is supposed to make me realize that I have lost tremendous amount of weight (23 pounds as per today, almost the same weight as the back-pack). It also supposed to motivate me to get rid of remaining 40 pounds excess weight as soon as possible, because I am allowed to throw away one stone per 10lbs weight loss.
Today is taught me something new. In the morning I decided to take a day off of my urban back-packing and go to work without it. The feeling of walking freely without 22 pounds on my back was amazing.
It dawned on me – fed up carrying around a burden? Just drop it… I am about to drop some burdens! Watch me!
