What I Take With Me When I Go Out
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

What do you take with you when you leave your house in the morning? If you are like most people, you grab your cell phone, your lunch, and your car keys. If you are a student, you also grab your backpack. You then head out the door and go off to work or school. Like you, I, too, have items that I take with me when I go out.

Since I am a blogger, I usually have three items with me: a notebook, a pen, and my cell phone. I carry a notebook and pen for two reasons. First, I never know when an idea will come to me, and I want to have paper and pen handy so that I can write it down. Second, if I have to wait for some reason, I will be able to write while I wait. By making use of my waiting time in this way, I can be productive. I can also avoid becoming aggravated by the wait. In addition to my notebook and pen, there is one other item that I regularly carry with me: my cell phone. I like having my own cell phone, because it gives me a feeling of independence. Rather than having one phone that my husband and I both use, this one is mine. The calls I usually receive on my phone are from family. However, I do occasionally get calls from people who dialed the wrong number.

I carry my phone with me so that family will be able to reach me. I also carry it because I am hoping to one day hear from a professional who has been reading my blog who calls to ask me to come speak. I might then fly to a major city, where I would speak in front of a group at a facility such as a school or a civic center.

When I go somewhere where I plan to stay for a few days, I bring other items with me, in addition to my notebook, pen, and phone. Along with these items, I also bring my laptop, clothing, and toiletry items such as my toothbrush, toothpaste, hairbrush, and dental floss. I bring toiletry items with me so that I can look and feel my best, and I bring my laptop with me so that I can continue writing and publishing, even when I am away from home.

By having items with me that I normally use, I can be happy and comfortable. I can then focus on those around me to see what I can do for them.

I am the same way. If I am going more that a short trip I always take a back pack with the essentials to survive for a day or two. I woudl be lost if I did not have it :)
