How many people do you know…?

untidy clothes closet

It’s not about whether you keep a tidy or untidy closet but my question to you is: How many people do you know who own 2 pairs of shirts, 2 pairs of trousers, 2 dresses and 2 pairs of shoes? I remember the days as a child we would get 2 new outfits a year? One would be worn on Christmas Day and the other on New Year’s Day. Then those 2 outfits would represent our Sunday best for the rest of the year. The beauty of that system was we never had untidy closets. We knew what we had. We were proud of what we had because they were well chosen treasures. We didn’t lust for more.

Nowadays the human species don’t know what they have and constantly feel they don’t have therefore they must get. Our marketeers have done a wonderful job of selling us more and more stuff that fill already depressed places in our homes. Stuff that never fulfils their place, their purpose. Instead their place is to sit buried, hidden, unused.

If you are victim to such a life style, uplift your soul by keeping only the treasures that give you joy. Give away the “stuff”.
