How much does your life weigh?

George contemplates his life...

Last night I watched the movie “Up in the air” with George Clooney. In one particular scene he was presenting on downsizing your life and I thought what he said rang so true. How much does your life weigh?

Imagine for a second you are carrying a backpack. Feel the straps on your shoulders. Now I want you to pack it with all the stuff you have in your life. Start with the little things, the shelves, drawers, knic knacks, collectibles, feel the weight as that adds up…Now try to walk – hard isn’t it? This is what we do to ourselves on a daily basis. We weight ourselves down until we can’t even move and make no mistake – moving is living!
