Author Ethel Mae highlights the importance of leaving baggage behind in a guide to overcoming obstacles and achieving dreams titled “Pack Your Luggage But Leave Your Baggage: Practical Everyday Tips for Men and Women to Help Get through This Thing We Call Life!” (published by Archway Publishing).

Mae shares parts of her personal story and makes observations on life so readers can: appreciate their strengths and love themselves, confront and overcome whatever is holding them back and troubling them, take responsibility for their future, and adjust their attitude to achieve success.

The author also highlights the power of words and why it’s important to use them wisely, as well as why it’s important to forgive others and set oneself free. She encourages readers to pay attention to the people they surround themselves with, who influences them, and “who claps when you win.” She also explains that it’s important to look at life as a cruise where an individual enjoys the journey instead of being so fixated and anxious on a destination.
