Sitting here, listening to the thunder and the pounding rain against the windows and wishing I had made good on my plans to clean out my closet today.
You see, I've been contemplating emptying my closet for months. And I mean empty it completely! Then reload with way fewer items. Some call it a capsule wardrobe - that is a pretty popular term these days. Others might say it a 'minimalist approach' to dressing. Either way, it is something that has been wiggling around in my mind for some time.
And yet, I continue to put the project off. Why the blazes is that? It's definitely something I want to do - downsize and simplify my wardrobe!
The main reason is the sheer size of the project. It is daunting, to say the least. Perhaps even overwhelming. I know it is probably going to take several hours and create a huge mess if I do it properly. So, I start thinking about the process and begin to lose sight of the end result - which is a simpler wardrobe and less time focused on deciding what to wear each day.
Even though I busted my rear getting most of the regular weekend chores done yesterday so I could work on the closet today, I still managed to piddle around and avoid getting started.
Shame on me! Seriously, now that it is nearly supper time, I find myself still sitting on the sofa, watching Netflix with the hubs and listening to the rain.
I guess I am just not quite ready, or motivated, to get off my butt and get the job done. Or, maybe I just needed the downtime today. Whichever, I still feel a bit of disappointment with myself for not just jumping in feet first.
Do you ever plan a project and find yourself procrastinating like this? Please, oh please, tell me I am not the only one.
