The Cost to Fly with Baggage


I’ve never heard (or read) as much controversy and ridicule as I did when the airlines decided to charge to check baggage.  I also realized that this was going to force passengers to re-think what they really needed for any given trip.  No more “just in case I need it” packing.  Now, if you hang around here at all, you know I’m not going to go on about the aviation industry and their desperate attempt to make a buck.  I’m only using them as an example for a little life lesson (in 300 words or less, of course.

Money.  You know that green stuff that we go bonkers over when someone tries to take more than they should…like the airlines.  After all, we paid for the ticket and should be able to take whatever we want on our trips whether we need it or not.  Right?  Well, maybe for flying on a plane, but definitely not for the kind of flying I’m talking about.

Do you know what it feels like to be free – when everything seems to open up for you and you’re on top of the world (a sense of self-flight)?  That’s what I’m talking about.  Guess what?  If you do know that wonderful place, it’s because you dumped your baggage before you started climbing – your emotional baggage, that is.

Hanging onto unnecessary emotions and pain from the past (packing more than you need) is not an option if you want to move freely to the next destination in your life journey.  Why?  Because I said so…no, seriously, it’s much too costly.  Only it isn’t that green stuff leaving; it’s a nice piece of yourself being offered to the kick-me-when-I’m-down god.  We’ve all done it, but it’s time to stop paying for your baggage.

Just let it go. Be well-be beautiful.

About Kellie R. Stone

"I make no excuses for my diverse roles as a Rock Your Feminine Type Coach™ and Branding Expert, best-selling author, and crime thriller novelist. Yes, I do still chuckle a bit at the irony. I kick ass as a women’s biz coach by day and kill off vulnerable fiction characters at night. What the hell, it makes for some interesting dreams. I believe that everyone should pursue their passions no matter how out there they seem to be. One of those pure heart-fluttering passions for me has always been writing. Since I did, indeed, chase my dream of being a writer, I've published two non-fiction books in the self-development genre, co-authored an international best seller, and now I'm finally pushing my much-too-old-to-be-in-the-nest novel out the door and into the world. My whole world is empowering and I adore showing others how to live life unfiltered, whether I do that through the written word or my coaching work. I love my job!" ~Kellie R. Stone

Under The Leaves

A few days ago, while raking leaves, my cat loved attacking the rake. I laughed at the amount of joy that Mageara gained from this menial task I needed to finish. I enjoyed the task more because she did. Just as I began to pull in another pile of leaves and the cat jumped at the rake, I took delight in something else! I uncovered little white daisies. They were in full bloom, smiling up at me as if they had the secret to life. I laughed out loud at such a weird find in late fall. And then, of course, I took a picture! Several thoughts came to mind, which I want to share with you.
