Keep It Simple

Tynan has another great post about life simplification…this time it’s about fashion. Can you imagine only owning a single pair of pants? A little grungy sounding I agree, but can you also imagine how easy it would be to get dressed every morning!

No wasted time or energy deciding what colors to wear or having to avoid wearing the same thing too often.

Just last week I managed to fill up another trash bag with old clothes, and plan to do the same this weekend. I recently bought a few new things, and want to make sure I am not hording old stuff that I rarely wear. I want my closet to only be filled with things that fit me well and that I enjoy wearing.

Everything else must go to someone else who needs the clothing more than I do.

  1. Dear Ravi, I am so happy that I found your blog, Set Higher Standards. The title alone is inspirational. I say it over an over when i start to spin out of control. I am a mother of two adult children and and three grandchildren and I am training for my first marathon, the Nike Women’s in San Francisco. I am training with Team in Training, http://pages.teamintraining.org/nyc/nikesf09/jclowes. My first marathon and my first time fundraising. Throughout my life I have always settled for less, usually just to make things easier and to not “make waves.” Breaking that pattern is why I signed up with TNT for the marathon. I have come to a place where I finally want more and want to demand more of myself. Your blog is helping me find the focus and set higher standards for myself. I tried your recipe for pinapple/kale smoothie. It was great. Thanks for the inspiration.

    1. Hey Jerie, thanks for the comment and best of luck in your Marathon. I remember mine vividly (Seattle Marathon 2000) and it is so worth it. Please write back and let me know how your training goes, and how the event goes as well!
