Baggage Cart Statement

We all carry emotional baggage Naturally; these manifests differently for each of us. Some of us carry suitcases of pain and bitterness while some of us just have a backpack. As an empath, I carry a lifetime of disappointments and racial traumas.

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 baggage carts are designed as a vessel for racial and class traumas. My baggage carts serve…

  • to separate myself from these experiences.
  • to grant access to grace.
  • to create a new possibility for myself, free from the constraints of the past.
