This is really a difficult question that needs meditation. But where would be the destination to bring those objects? I would always bring with me my bag with all the stuff I need inside.

A family picture and my favorite dress.
What is the most special thing I did today- I was MYSELF. Happy and in love and unapologetically myself.

I'm sure this seems silly to most other adults, but I would bring a small stuffed animal. Something familiar like that would give a lot of comfort.

Good question! I think these items would work for me too. Of course, it would need to be a book that I can easily re-read since I'd probably fly through it in no time!

I would bring a change of clothes, a bar of soap, a water canteen, a knife, a couple pictures of my family and friends, and a lanyard that used to be my best friend's. That covers the necessities and maybe enough memories to keep me sane.

I would bring a notebook, pencil and a photo album. A notebook and a pencil are just have for me. I need to have that with me wherever I go. The photo album would be for nostalgic purposes.

This would be a really hard decision for me. I would have to think about the nessary items needed, but also sentimental items like family photos and scrapbooks. Hopefully, I'll never have to make a choice like this because I'm stressed just thinking about it!

What ever journey that is, I always bring with me my compass. This compass reminds me of my glorius days when I was a scout.

So are we sure that I cannot take my phone? :) "Joking"

I won't be needing anything to take with me because I have it all in my memory.

This is a hard one. I would definitely want to bring 2 books, but on the other hand, I could purchase them later. Perhaps some family memorabilia - picture album and maybe my phone.

I would definitely take some sort of family picture or memento, or maybe something that my kids have made me. Depending on if I need to pack a lot of necessities, I might bring a couple of my favorite books. That's definitely a tough question!
