Shed the Shroud
These clothes keep me in the shadow of my own life. There is no joy living in the shadow. Please understand it is not the clothes themselves.... it is what they represent to me. Everyone has an ideal. An ideal size, weight, job, style, schedule.... when we choose to repeatedly live outside of our ideal our best self steps more in the shadows. The more we choose to live in the shadow the easier it is to settle when the next thing presents itself.
These clothes represent death to me. Death of my healthy self. Death of my sexy self. Death of my athletic self. Death of the healthy self image that I have always had. This is not me. These clothes don't represent who I am or who I want to be.
Today, before me is death and life and I choose LIFE!
What is it that you need to shed?
