Out With The Old, In With The New

After walking Skyler in the morning, I somehow found myself Skype-ing with the boyfriend while I was inside a textile jungle that seemingly resembles my walk-in closet. I was initially looking for a pair of boyfriend jeans a.k.a. i-think-i-overdid-it-with-the-fries jeans to wear while I do some errands for the day, but somehow, I ended up exhuming a pile of old clothes. One by one, I started picking up a piece of clothing and told the boyfriend what memories I have of it, whether they be good or bad.

The boyfriend and I have such a great relationship going on but we definitely hit a couple of rough patches along the way. Okay---more like black hole, lost into the abyss patches. So all the clothes that were from any black hole era have remained in the deepest, darkest corner of the closet until now. I realize that holding on to these clothes seemed like I was letting bad experiences linger in my life. So what's a girl to do?

Out with the old, in with the new! Three bags full of black hole memories (can you believe this was just from one morning of rummaging through stuff? I still have a mountain of them to let go of!)...off to Goodwill you go!

My sister once told me that if I did some cleaning, good things would come my way. I think she just told me that to convince me to clean my  pig sty of an apartment but hey, I'll buy the whole Feng Shui thing too. This year has been rather interesting, albeit antagonizing so I want to have a great head start for the incoming new year. 

I got my pedicure done, I dropped off the black hole memories at Goodwill and I even managed to drop by  the vet's office to get Skyler's shots updated! I was happy, Sky was not.

You can't change the past. It's history. No matter how much you try to rehash the whole thing in your mind, it ain't gonna change...not one bit. Most of us lose so much time thinking about the past that we fail to see and appreciate the magical things that are happening right here, right now. Sometimes we just need to let it go, my friend. Don't you dare sing that Frozen song.

You know what this means for me, right?

It's time to go shopping for some new clothes. Oh yeah, you saw that coming.

Toodles! :)
