Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #72–Waiting

This weeks Lens-Artists Photo Challenge is themed Waiting. I am waiting today. Waiting for my flight tomorrow. Bags are packed. My daughter and I are ready for a new chapter of our life ot begin. This is what we agreed to bring to this new chapter.

One carry-on bag, and one backpack each.

Travel light. Live light. Spread the light. Be the light.

I’ve been so impressed by my daughter since we decided to move to Sweden. She have donated most of her toys and clothes, and did so happily. She got to take the responsibility to decide what to keep, and what to give away. She whole heartedly went for the mission. We have done similar things in the past, but not on this scale. Twice every year she gets to go through her toys and clothes to see what she actually use and donate the rest. I am so grateful for every minute spent with this beautiful, wise soul. I feel truly blessed. Now we are both getting very excited about our new chapter that is about to begin..

Everything you own must be able to fit inside one suitcase; then your mind might be free.

I hope your weekend is fabulous so far!

It’s all about experiences, and the healing power of nature. Life is about choosing happiness. I entered the magic world of photography when I was five years old. My gypsy soul have taken me to many different countries, and definitely taught me to be more humble. I believe that you are what you eat, body and soul. I enjoy growing my own food, and spending time outdoors. A Sagittarius loves to travel, have an open mind and, and a philosophical view. It motivates them to wander around the world in search of the meaning of life. Sagittarius is extrovert, optimistic and enthusiastic, and likes changes. A lot of that perfectly describes me. The fact that my ancestors, on both parents sides, were vikings, doesn’t exactly lessen my desire to explore. Maybe a slightly more mindful exploring, compared to the average viking. My blog, and my art prints is a results of my (inner and outer) explorations. Love, Maria

    1. Thank you Diana! It is easier when you don’t have so much stuff to begin with. It feels good to go through and not keep the things that aren’t being used in any way. Naturally we always keep some personal keepsakes, just not hundreds of them. ❤

  1. Wow – impressive packing and so mature of your daughter to downsize. She’s learning the value of experiences versus things. (Not that I know much about that, but I do admire people who embrace it!). You’re moving…I thought you were heading to the piece of land you visited just a little while ago? You’re going to Sweden to live?! Oh, my, I need to catch up too!!! Safe travels xxxx

  2. You should, and I am sure are, very proud of your daughter. She sounds mature beyond her years. 🙂 Have a safe and enjoyable trip. We can’t even go on a week’s vacation with such a small bit of luggage. 🙂
