Tonight I was putting away laundry, struggling to fit one more hanger on the rack. I thought to myself, “enough is enough”. I am not going to wear that size 2 mini skirt ever again. Or the unicorn dress I bought one summer, when I was 19. Although there has been certain occasions I was glad I had saved an article of clothing, like Halloween, most the time it, things I don’t wear, just sit in my closet. For years. I texted my coworkers, one a younger girl and another with a teenage daughter, and asked them if they would like my clothes I wanted to give away. Both of them texted back quickly, YES! So, for two hours I went through all my dresses, shirts and pants, pulling anything I didn’t love or made me feel good when I wore it. Sure, there were somethings I thought were cute… but really not my style any more. I thought about times I wore something and how I didn’t like how it fit, and I threw it in the bag. My lack of hangers, tuned into an abundance and I feel that tomorrow when I pick out my outfit, it will be much easier.
It feels good to get rid of things I do not need. The fact that I am not using them and someone else could enjoy them, makes me happy. I am at a point in my life, where if I don’t love it, if it doesn’t bring me joy or add beauty to my life- I’m done with it. Good bye clutter, not only am I simplifying my wardrobe, I am simplifying my life.
