If you had to make sure, right now, that you took only five of the most important things with you on a new journey in your life, don't tell me what you would take, but what you would be leaving behind?

I'd leave behind my family, my house, my clothes, and a whole lot more but I just can't think about them.

I thought this was going to be an easy one. Wrong! Bad memories if I could leave them behind and never think of them again, I'd be happy.

Five small pebbles.
Because everything in my life works together to create who I am, and I have no regrets. ~no~ regrets whatsoever.
So i'd leave behind five small pebbles, to mark the signifigance of absolutely every aspect of my life.

Thanks for the great topic.

I woulds leave behind my pain and insecurities, false friends, lies and probably my heart.

Hey coyote, what a beautiful comment. Is it yours or from somewhere else?

Dee

I wish you every happiness and may you always have the best of the good things in life. a brand

I'd tell Acire he could come with me to the island.....put him in a dingy...and sail him off to the opposite direction.

That's what you get for making fun of my cold!

I was born myself, raised myself, and will continue to be myself. The world will just have to adjust.

I'm in love with my shadow
I admire it daily

Hi Dee,
No that little piece isn't mine. I could only wish it so.
Actually, I can't remember where it comes from?
But at the time, it seemed appropriate and pertinent to the question.
"Circle of life" and all that good stuff?
Thanks for your thoughts.

My shoes. (hate to wear those)
My insecurities. (who needs them?)
My responsibilities. (How fun are those?)
My busy schedule. (slow down, waaay down)
My healthy diet. (junk food every day!)
