Letting go of your must-haves can be harder than you think... even when you're lugging them around in a 95-pound suitcase the size and color of a fire engine.

Hoping to experience simplicity and contentment in the "Happiest Place on Earth," Dias carefully planned her trip of a lifetime. Little did she know that almost every step would be fraught with challenges, mishaps, and detours. Everything that could go wrong on her journey, did. It was a fiasco that left her wondering whether the Universe-via her big red suitcase-was trying to teach her something.
