A New Wardrobe

“What is the appropriate behavior for a man or a woman in the midst of this world, where each person is clinging to his piece of debris?

What’s the proper salutation between people as they pass each other in this flood?”

Buddha

How often do you clean out your wardrobe or life?

When you did have time to do it, how did it feel?

For me, it always feels like I have created more space.  I always feel lighter after letting go of the old and making more room for the new.

We cling on to the old, like wallpaper.  We forget it’s there after awhile and thinking about taking it off… well, it just seems too hard.

But when we take time to let go of what no longer serves us, and challenge ourselves to try on new outfits and experiences; we push through boundaries that have trapped us and keep us small.

We push through cobwebs that have entangled our energy and what we find on the other side is always expansion, new energy and potential.

So go and clean up your wardrobe!  See what no longer fits you, and allow some space for expansion.

See how learning something new or creating a new style gives us more energy and a new step in life.

  1. Love this analogy! . For me personally, cleaning out my wardrobe is somehow easier to think of then sitting down to my inner work, and yet by literally doing this one would do inner work as well. Beautiful!

  2. You wrote this for me today! Even if you didn’t know it. Had a convo with a friend about letting the old go, even when you haven’t found your “new.” Making room. All good:). Even if scary.
