Conundrum: “a confusing and difficult problem or question.”
Since we’re in the midst of finalizing things here and deciding what to take with us and what to leave behind, packing is always a conundrum. Having one foot in one country and the other foot in our sending country, it’s kind of hard to know what’s essential to pack in a suitcase with a 50 pound limit. This is like stuffing part of my office in one suitcase since all of our affairs for Rehoboth are not online. Then there are those winter clothes which get thrown in for the conference we attend in Portland each October right before we head back to Haiti. Ah yes, and the essential pile of books my husband insists on taking back to read over the summer complicate things even more! Should I take those shoes? What about that skirt? By the time eight months in Haiti is over, I truly forget what I have in North Carolina! What if I forget….?
Ok, now that I’ve unpacked these complaints for you to read, I encourage that ”someone” to just leave it behind. No, I’m not talking about your luggage! I’m talking about those things you’ve been carrying around that weigh you down and wear you out. Worries, fears, doubts, memories, responsibilities that you’ve taken on that really belong to so-and-so… and the list goes on. Some things are better left behind. What’s getting thrown in your ”bag” that is wearing you out? Is it time to eliminate, discard, throw away, or just leave it behind for another day?
