The big wardrobe cleanse

I cleaned out my wardrobe this evening.


It made me emotional to go through my smaller clothes knowing that just a year ago I still wore them. It kind of sucks when you see a size 8 hidden behind your current size 14. I admit, it made me feel really bad and I lashed out at myself for being a “failure” again, but I had to. I had to clear out the clutter and let go of the past. I also had carbs this evening, which definitely didn’t help the pity party either.

Those clothes don’t fit me anymore, so why am I torturing myself with hoarding them? Why am I wasting wardrobe space with painful memories? It’s just clothing that someone else could wear, I don’t need them anymore. I can’t keep them in the hopes that I will one day get back into them, I don’t even like some of the items anymore.

 

Bottom line is simple, I’m learning that progress means letting go of what no longer serves me and that also means letting go of the stuff “Skinny Cashé” wore. That chick doesn’t live here anymore, but “Healthy Cashé” is moving in, and we need space for her stuff now. Plus, I have so much more wardrobe space now too.

I love hearing from you guys, please leave a comment below if you have been considering a wardrobe cleanse too.

Help! I’m an Ego Maniac

I’m currently eating my feelings after an argument with my husband. They’re Smart Bite biscuits and I have tracked them on MyFitnessPal, but I’m still using my victim brain to justify my behaviour and I’m willing to bet that you do this too. Continue reading “Help! I’m an Ego Maniac”

Letting go of the “When I Have”

There is a pretty good chance that you have the same problem as I do, you probably have a case of the When I Haves. That’s okay because it seems like everyone does. Continue reading “Letting go of the “When I Have””

Lessons in letting go

I had a nervous breakdown last week. Not the dramatic kind that you tell your husband you’re having when the kids misbehave, but the legitimate kind that your doctor diagnoses you with.  Continue reading “Lessons in letting go”

Life lessons in a bath towel

To say that this week has been the worst yet is an understatement. Over the weekend, we suffered the loss of the pillar of my family and it has devastated us all. I’m not ready to talk about it yet, but I do want to share what it woke up in me. Continue reading “Life lessons in a bath towel”
