Cleaning Out Your Closet

This weekend I gave myself the wonderful task of cleaning out my closet. Putting my summer clothes away and replacing them with the fall and winter clothes. Every year we do the same thing, putting clothes away and washing the one from last season so we can wear them. Sometimes, this is a task that we try to avoid as much as possible but should we? Should we throw away or donate the clothes that just doesn't fit right anymore?

In life, I believe that this task should not be taken lightly because there are things that change in our lives from season to season. Cleaning out your closet should be a task that is a New Beginning from one season to another. Out with the old, in with the new right? In life I think we need to clean out our closets from time to time. Get rid of the things or people that are holding you back and replace them with new things or new people that are on the same page as you. Donate those things and people that you no longer need to someone else who might be looking for those things. Wash your hands of that season and start a new. Reevaluate the company you keep, the values you have and make sure it's the best you. You owe it to yourself.

Next time you decide to clean out your closet and put away the summer clothes and bring out the winter clothes or vice versa, think about your life and see if you need to do any cleaning. Make sure your not wearing a mask and its the real you! When was the last time you cleaned out your closet? Do you do it often? Do you not do it enough? Let me know your thoughts?

  1. I don't have to literally clean out my closet often since summer is the only season I know. Nonetheless I totally agree with the different seasons in a person's life. We all grow and change often. Just like cleaning out the closet, we have to make sure that we have the tools to survive and get the most out of the current season.
    Great thoughts!
