I was reflecting on my posting of loving ourselves RIGHT NOW! It had me thinking about how many times do we put something on and we don't like what we see? Or we don't like how we feel?
My solution: GET RID OF IT!
Why should we keep things in our closet that doesn't absolutely encourage us to love ourselves.
In the past I would keep something in my closet that I would say:
"Well maybe if I had this to go with it...."
Or I would put on a pair of jeans that I just wasn't feeling it that particular day! Which is absolutely ridiculous because another pair in my closet would feel just wonderful....
Which got me to thinking: why keep anything in my closet that doesn't just encourage me to love the beautiful woman GOD has made me to be? Why not focus on what lends to my mind, my spirit of feeling fantastic!
Therefore, I have learned over the years, I only keep in my closet things that give me JOY....clothing that will speak to who I really am!
Clothing that says:
1. I will respect this temple.
2. I will walk with my head high because I am beautiful.
3. I will not be ashamed of this outfit.
*** I will not waste my time with clothing in my closet that does not speak to me!
I will not wear something that doesn't shout: I LOVE LIFE!
How is this related to my faith....my femininity?
It means I am being authentic!
I am honoring God!
And I am being that walking example to my beautiful warrior, that God is guiding me to mold, in my dynamic daughter!
Take home challenge: Go to your closet right now. Pull out 10 items that you always shake your head at or think negative things about yourself when you put it on or think about! PULL THEM NOW! Bag them up. Tie that bag with a knot! Stick it into your trunk! And take it to the consignment shop, donation spot, a friend...somewhere....anywhere....but do not keep them in your house a moment longer!
Would love to hear or see what you pulled from your closet. Leave a comment below or email me a line!
Many blessings always,
