At this very moment I am in the midst of a much needed PURGE! (of clothes!)
The thing is... I have been trying to de-clutter my apartment, life, etc... I feel that you can never truly be free to have peace until you remove the unnecessary things from your life :) I have SOOO many clothes. And while that is not a bad thing, I was sitting here thinking that day in and out I feel as if I have nothing to wear, yet I have clothes in drawers, bags, in the closet, on the floor in bins... etc... And I KNOW it is a blessing to even HAVE this as a problem. But today I decided that even if I do not finish, I will get organized (you have to start somewhere) and I am going through my clothes to give away the things I can. If they are in bins I probably don't use them every day anyway... And maybe this will be the incentive I need to actually buy some clothes that I would feel more comfortable wearing.
The strange thing is I AM NOT A SHOPPER. These clothes are accumulated from years of not getting rid of "out of style" clothes and always being around the same size... I can still wear some clothes that I had in 9th grade (though I wouldn't wear them in public... lol) and I'm 24 now!
I just wanted to write a quick blog to remind us all to take inventory of our lives and be THANKFUL for all the things you DO have even if you don't have everything you want or need. And while you're at it, find something to give away to someone who is in need!
Happy Tuesday. Back to school for me tomorrow! We start working in the hospital and now I have to wear business casual every day... WELCOME TO THE REAL WORLD! LOL
