There is this amazing thing happening that is directly in relation to my path towards minimalism. I am starting to learn to accept myself. In that spirit of acceptance I am sharing a selfie here (poorly cut bangs and all). My friend Amber made me this gorgeous scarf, which I wanted to share- hence the selfie.
You may be asking what one has to do with the other. My spare room was filled floor to ceiling with clothes that did not fit. Letting go of all those failed expectations was liberating. Well, at first it was anxiety inducing because of all the emotions that were packed away in those tubs. I just kept going one item at a time.
I cleared out all of the clothes in my closet that did not fit, were worn out or did not fit my style. I now have a very limited wardrobe and everything that now comes into my closet is part of my uniform. More on that another day.
By getting rid of all of these things I am making space in my life for new opportunities. I am going to start working out again. I'm adding more vegi's to my plate. I am spending more time out and about doing as opposed to watching television.
I read an amazing quote recently-
When people are ready to, they change. They never do it before then, and sometimes they die before they get around to it. You can't make them change if they don't want to, just like when they do want to, you can't stop them.
-Andy Warhol, Andy Warhol In His Own Words
I am feeling ready to embrace and embark on this journey called life.
