Our journey through life starts with our first breath and ends with our last one. Since our birth we have packed many bags for our trip. Our closets are filled to overflowing. Each time we open our closet door we have a conversation with those clothes. If the truth be known we actually wear only a few items in our closet. Our clothes have a way of making us feel bad.
Why do we do this to ourselves? Why can’t we just be happy with ourselves just like we were? We were trying to fit into an unrealistic picture that only stays with us for that fleeting moment.
It is time for us to quiet these beratings and get on with our flight without feeling guilty. There is an easy way to banish these voices from your head; get them out of your closet and only keep items of clothing that you absolutely adore and feel like a million bucks in when you wear them. Decluttering your closet is not going to kill you; in fact, it may just save your life.
It is time we packed for our journey. Our closets are no longer going to stand in our way of traveling light and enjoying our trip.
First, we need to look at the clothes we truly love because we feel good in them. This goes for your shoes, too. Pull those out of your closet one at a time and think about the words you hear in your head when you have them on. Now put them back in your closet and pull out something that does not give you the same feeling.
If the item of clothing makes you feel bad, evokes feelings of guilt in you or you just don’t like it, then put it in the give-away box. If you have changed careers and no longer have to get dressed into suits, then donate them so others can start their new jobs and look nice.
Do not spend hours; this will make you feel sick . Bless yourself by being kind to you. Bless others by donating those clothes that say ugly words when you enter your closet.
