Drop it like it's hot

If you want to travel light, then just drop any story that comes up.
Especially the ones that seem important.
The ones that insist that you should think of a solution. Or take a stand.
Before you know it, you are carrying two suitcases filled with mental garbage.

Actually I am writing this for myself 
(don't I always)
because an IMPORTANT ISSUE is creeping up again lately.
To be honest it has been creeping up since forever,
presenting itself as a familiar knot in my stomach.

Old reaction: I must think of a proper strategy.
If not, I will be lost.
Result: My thoughts swirl around like bees, filling the suitcases with useless armor.
(I am the only one noticing the weight)
Conclusion: It doesn't work. Never has, never will. But there you go.

Insight: Thoughts can never free you of thought. 
(And every problem is a result of thought. Ever experienced a problem when you were without thought?)

Right. So there is only one thing left to do.
Drop it like it's hot.
Just like that.
