Today I bought a luggage.
It’s my third present to myself this month. Christmas is becoming a terrible excuse.
And while purchasing a luggage seems insignificant, it is a huge deal to me.
In all my 23 years, I have never bought a luggage before. I have never even bought a backpack before. This symbolized freedom to choose, and freedom to travel. I have felt it, and I have experienced it. But there’s more.
This luggage will arrive at my house on Boxing Day. And from then on, it will lie in my room to serve as a reminder that I should work towards my ideal plan and not settle comfortably where I am just because it’s safe.
It will also serve to remind me of the moments of fearlessness, moments of worry-free certainty – of where I want to be, even if it’s full of risks and uncertainty.
Lastly, it will serve to remind me that I’m a baby step closer to it.
Next up, getting the boy and I a job in the same city.
