“Bag lady you gone hurt your back
Dragging all them bags like that
I guess nobody ever told you
All you must hold onto, is you, is you, is you”


“As a Women, as a Black Woman I take on more than I can chew not because I want to but because I’m forced to.” 

Shameeka Samuels

There are some that will question my previous quote and they’re entitle to their opinions. However, in life we’re directed an redirected, we face storms, hurricanes and more. There are times in which our world is turned upside down in a matter of seconds, we find ourselves in Disbelief, Fear and  with little Faith.

So what we do, we bag it up and carry all the hurt, pain and disappointment. Then we turn around and challenge the challenge because we know fighting back is the only way to beat the unwanted situation. So we take on more than we can handle, but sometimes we forget the praying and fasting. We lose faith in GOD and let worrying take over our entire body, mind and soul.

“One day all them bags gon’ get in your way
One day all them bags gon’ get in your way
I said one day all them bags gon’ get in your way
One day all them bags gon’ get in your way, so pack light,
Pack light, mm, pack light, pack light, oh ooh”


Still not sure if you’re Bag Lady, let me continue to enlighten you…….

Let me tell you about my co-worker Dee, Sis carries 3 bags to work faithfully ( 2 totes and 1 lunch bag). I’m pretty sure she doesn’t use half of the stuff in those 2 totes. Guess what, it’s taking a toll on her back and neck  because she’s in constant pain. The crazy thing is she doesn’t think her bags have anything to do with her pain.

I explained to her it’s the bags but she still carry 3 bags daily.  I forgot to mention one of those bag is full of bills that she constantly complains and worry about. GOD tells us to have FAITH in him and not to WORRY, but I get it. It’s not easy to ignore bills, bill collectors, so we take on the challenge and try to figure out a way to” take from Peter to pay Paul” but does this really solve the problem. Yes I have done it plenty of times and I’m not sure it does.
