Set down the baggage

You’ve been carrying around

For too long a time

No need to unpack

Nothing fits you anymore

You’ve outgrown this stuff

Let yourself feel free

Recognize your hands again

And high five yourself

    Hmmm….isn’t high-fiving ourselves the same as giving ourselves the clap? 🙂
