There are a couple of dresses (yes dresses in MY closet) that have been hanging there for more years than I care to admit. Because I just know I will lose enough weight to wear them even though I hate wearing dresses. Hanging near the dresses are several really cute tops that will not only look nice but will be fun to wear. As soon as I lose enough weight. Luckily, the pants have escaped this hang-and-wait prison as I not only fit into my pants but had no trouble purging my closet and drawers of the ones that no longer fit. I mean, pants are pants and unless you have a favorite pair of jeans there's no real reason to hang onto them. Unless you're one of those who loves to wear cute pants with designs on them. I like my pants, plain.
|A few of the culprits.|
Keeping those clothes has not provided positive motivation or inspired me to do a darn thing other than move them further and further until they finally landed in the back of the closet. I'm surprised I haven't moved them to the nursery closet. Hey, wait! Ha! No, I won't do that. It seems these clothes that are going to look good on me and be so much fun to wear are, instead, putting some wear and tear on my emotional energy. Yes, I'm suffering from closet guilt. Every time I see these clothes, which is more difficult now because of their current location in the closet, I am not motivated or inspired, rather I am reminded of what I have not done followed by some sugar loaded goodness to make me feel better. See the problem?
I realize the problem lies within. I realize I am not motivated. I realize laziness has taken the number one spot of my current driving traits. I realize my attitude in not conducive to anything fitness and healthy lifestyle related right now. And I'm hoping that these realizations will put me back on the road to changing all this once again.
Surely there is a conquering hero somewhere inside amongst my character traits. A conquering hero who will attack the negativity. Who will kick the motivation into high gear. Who will inspire me from within. Who will stop waiting on other things before starting to focus on myself. Who will stop me from letting others bring me down.
Meanwhile, I'll put those clothes right back where they were, in the back of the closet. I'd hate for them to be gone when this conquering hero springs forth and does her job. I'm putting her on notice, however. She's got til autumn to show up. If she doesn't, the clothes are out of here. I figure I'll be purged of the weight or the closet will be purged of the clothes taking up space. I can consider either of those a win, right?
Do you have clothes hanging in your closet just taking up space?
