We all carry emotional baggage. Some of us carry shopping carts of pain and bitterness while some of us just have a backpack. I carry a lifetime of racial trauma.
Being alive means having the capacity to carry past experiences and learn from them. But there’s a point when this baggage becomes too much. Carrying too much emotional baggage can literally stop us from being open to new experiences, intimacy and growth.
How we choose to handle our baggage makes a difference. We have the choice to let it define us or to let it go and move forward.
My Emotional Baggage Carts are vessels for unresolved emotional baggage related to racial trauma. My baggage carts serve…
- to separate myself from these experiences.
- to grant access to grace in the face of adversity.
- to create a new possibility for myself, free from the constraints of the past
Each recovered shopping cart is woven with fabric, paracord, yarn, tulle, ribbon, fishing nets, pom poms, pony beads, zip ties, LED lights and more
