What’s in the bag

Someone said if the only tool you have is a hammer, you will treat every problem like a nail. 

Another described a long lasting marriage ‘made in heaven’ as one that started out like an empty box which the couple has filled with precious treasures over the years.

We are travellers in the journey of life, we start out with an empty bag. As we go through life, we gather the intangible things in our bag that dictate the way we live. What’s in that bag? Do we allow all kinds of experiences, bitterness, regrets, hate and everything else that turns our bag into a baggage? 

Or, do we watch what we let in our bag and pursue positive experiences, knowledge, relationships, attitudes etc that makes our bag a bounty of treasure?

That bag is yours and yours alone and you have a choice of what will remain in it.
