This 7kg Carry-On Baggage Limit Somehow Saves Me In The Most Unexpected Way
During April, I purchased a round-trip ticket to Melbourne. Well, it was in sales and I wanted to visit a friend of mine.
At the same time, I was depressed with how things were like in my life. I decided to quit my job after working for 2.5 years, as the environment was getting more toxic and I felt mentally drained daily. The moment when I sat at my desk, I was just looking at my phone, secretly counting down to the last hour.
Many would tell me that I’m blessed with an office job that doesn’t require much moving. Of course, I have gained weight since I started working for that company. The only reason why I stayed in due to the hourly pay.
When they decided to decrease my pay, I decided to call it quits.
The first thing I did was texting my friend and telling him that I would like to visit him. I immediately bought the tickets and I was so desperate to get out of my situation due to this unhappiness within me.
The strangest thing is that I don’t even know exactly why I am so unhappy. I tried to pinpoint and narrow down but to avail.
Hence, I decided to be brave and trust my instinct, booked myself a budget airline with merely 7kg carry-on baggage. I knew I needed this trip badly, but hey I just left my job.
It means I am left with no income, that didn’t stop me from travelling. As a problem solver, I will keep trying for a solution until it somehow works and resolves my situation.
I went back to my banquet job, it pays well but slightly lesser than my original job. My mental health got better, and that’s all it matters to me at that point in time.
As for the 7kg carry-on baggage limit, I was surely at a dilemma. For those who know me well, I always go for more than less. This pushed me way out of my comfort zone, forcing myself to carefully select the essentials pieces and stay within the weight limit of 7kg.
This minimalistic approach surprisingly makes me feel better in an inexplicable way. It reminded me of my current situation and that I need to cut off toxicity should it affects me negatively. Sometimes, you received important life lessons from the most random situations.
That 7kg of luggage didn’t just consist of my possession but also all my hopes and dreams as an adventurer. Whenever life screws you over, you don’t just drop everything and cry for help.
Whether you like it or not, life just moves on, with or without your existence so start thinking about how to resolve your own problems. Perhaps, the solution is just right around the corner.
