Short-term goal numero uno is complete! I shared my pajamas with others in need, cleared out workout wear that didn't fit/match-anything-on-the-planet, and whittled down my nighttime/gym wardrobe to three sets of clothes. (I actually have room for one more pair of track pants and one more t-shirt!)

Following through with this was awful. For a few moments. Bagging up the stuff I wasn't fond of was easy. It was the 'on the fence' items that began my formidable emotional challenge. The internal turmoil was heated. "Was I nuts to limit myself to only three gym outfits? I haven't worn this for months. But. What. If?"
So I sent a note to my friend Jaime. Who slashed her wardrobe - the entire thing - by 2/3 a few months ago. Her counsel?
Don't think too much about it...just throw it out.
Word. And I did.
And now I feel awesome!!!
And in occasional moments - frightened. This is going to be completely life transforming and that is a tiny bit scary.
I'm ready for the ride. And I feel like dancing now when I walk in my closet.
