Taking stock of what you have in your life and what makes you feel good is such a soulful experience. We often buy things that we don’t even like or love for that matter, just because it looks good in a magazine or on another person doesn’t mean it’s a winner for you. Of late I have been thinking a lot about our home, my wardrobe and what I bring into my life. Everything we accumulate holds energy and everyday we are reminded of the energy we feel and see around us. I have become conscious about what it is that brings me joy and whom I am around in those moments of joy, what a gift.
So I started my journey with my wardrobe, I unpacked my wardrobe on the bed and I would only put the items back that I loved and suited my body shape and my complexion. Making sure that when I opened my wardrobe that I had seen the items that worked for me, my body shape, skintone and that I absolutely enjoyed wearing. I am sure I have worn a few of the same knits way too many times as you can see on Desmore Media and The Desmore Chats With Podcast but I enjoy wearing them and that is what matters most, that you love your purchases. I also cleaned out my makeup wardrobe and I have taken stock of what works for my olive skin tone and for me. I absolutely love a neutral eye palette, bronzer and a nude lipstick. It sounds pretty simple but those makeup products are my daily style staple and they work so well.
The best part about decluttering your life and home is the wisdom of knowing what works for you and not wasting your money on items you are only going to throw away in a few weeks or months. I am learning to let go of the things that doesn’t work for me and focus on the people, things and experiences that bring my soul joy. We live in a noisy world filled with others opinions on how we should live and what should make us feel good about ourselves. In the end you have to take stock of what works for you and what makes your soul ignite in joy.
