My fantasy these days is to travel light! We are preparing for vacation, and I’m considering trimming the packing list down to just the essentials. It’s crazy what I consider essential on a daily basis… Just think how unencumbered you would feel to get on an airplane with the clothes on your back, a book, and your wallet! I’m even contemplating leaving my curling iron and makeup behind *GASP*. I want to be fully present to my surroundings and my family and not spending time working on my hair and face…
I’m also going to try being emotionally unencumbered. I’m going to let go of my expectations, my control, my agendas. I’m going to visualize taking those things and opening my fist and blowing them out into the universe. Then the hard part – opening myself to possibilities and the unfolding of the days.
My other fantasy, emptying my mind of everything but the essentials. Which I think will be accomplished very nicely walking along the beach and picking up interesting shells and rocks!
My wrists though are going to be very encumbered, because I’m going to use the travel time to make these chevron bracelets: Photo and DIY from Honestly…WTF. Okay, so I’ll get on the plane with the clothes on my back, a book, my wallet, and embroidery floss!
Wishing you all a weekend unencumbered or encumbered – your choice!
