Your ticket to paradise
Your ticket to paradise

If you think that the airlines have strict baggage policies, then just check out the one from heaven. To date, no one has beaten the system.

It is a given that you can't take it with you. There is no time like the present to plan for the future while your feet are still firmly planted on the ground. There never seems to be enough time so choose wisely. By taking steps now to simplify your home and your lifestyle, you will open the door to opportunities that you really can enjoy.

Before you buy that ticket to paradise, think about your family as well. What you do not leave behind is almost as important as what you do leave. Hopefully, those that you hold near and dear will be filled with fond memories. The rest of the stuff is the last tangible statement that you give to the world so make it a good one. After all, you never get a second chance to make a last impression.

Ridding yourself of the excess baggage makes good sense all around for you and your family. There are benefits for your today as well as for your loved ones tomorrow. When it is finally your turn to fly the friendly skies, it will be comforting to know that you are doing it with a clear conscious.
