If you are joining me from 31 days, welcome!
I have been sharing about minimalism in my life. If you'd like to read the first post, or the second post in the series, you'll be all caught up!
Today's minimalism truth: if it doesn't fit, get rid of it.
Having three babies in four years has...changed the shape of my body. And I fought so hard to get it back. I clung to my favorite clothes in hopes that I could wear them again soon. Until I gave into the truth: even if I lost the weight, my old clothes would never fit again. Becoming a mama changed my heart, changed my life, and changed me physically.
Seeing my old clothes was a source of frustration at myself (why couldn't I lose the weight that I had so easily put on?) and I felt like a failure every time I went into my closet (which since I get dressed every day, was at least twice a day!).
So I got rid of them all. The silk shirts, the cashmere sweaters, the lot of it. And now my closet only has clothes I can wear. Clothes that make me feel pretty, not fat, and not a failure. And that, my friend, is a good thing.
So if you are holding onto those clothes, choose to be a minimalist today, and just get rid of them all!
