One of the main things that gets in the way of our holistic closet cleanout is not being able to let go of what no longer serves. And more specifically, we hold onto the past because letting that go means saying goodbye to the person we once were. (Click here to learn about doing a closet clear out to remove what you don’t wear because you’re waiting for a special reason to wear it.)
Whether it’s with the women I work with, or in my own wardrobe, I see a lot of things in the closet that have no business being there! These articles of clothing don’t represent who we are today. Yet still we hold on! The garment brings us back to a special era that we now see through rose colored glasses. It could be a baby pink slip dress that was worn through many good times, and we’re afraid that if we let the dress go, the person we were who once wore the dress will also disappear.
In this video, I talk about letting go of a garment that I’ve been holding onto since the 90s. It represent my galavanting days when I’d cruise around the Lower East Side looking for fun. (I found it!) I go through the practice of letting it go so you can see how it looks, and hopefully try it out with something that you’re holding onto from your past.
