Clothes Have Got To GO!
This will be hard to believe for people who know me, but I do not want to think about clothes anymore. I have been threatening to throw all my clothes away for several years now and follow the impulse to wear a uniform of my own creation. I used to love clothes and shopping for them and now all that has fallen away. They take up space in my closet, they take time to wash, fold, and sort. There is no telling how much time I have spent in my life having what I call, “a clothes crisis”. You know, you can’t find a thing to wear, you put your clothes on and take them off again, hell this doesn’t feel right and then overall hating everything you have.
Last year, I developed my “winter uniform” for wearing around the house. This consisted of black yoga pants and a men’s long underwear shirt. Only my close friends saw me that way. This year I am forming a dressier uniform. I bought 3 dresses and tights. The dresses are all the same style. They look good and I feel good in them. I am seriously considering clearing out my closet from all the old clothes that clutter my mind.
I confess that part of this is due to my loss of more vision over the past couple of years, but it isn’t really the main reason. This year I have been only interested in my new business. Clothes, domestic chores, and cooking fabulous meals just are not high on the priority list. I choose to believe that I am simplifying my life and aligning my energies with my real passion which is creating cool exercise programs and a few other surprises that will be showing up next year. I am choosing to empower myself by saying, “NO!” to a cluttered mind and closet. I like my closet better as a recording studio anyway.
