Confessions

Okay, so I have a confession.  Only very few people know about this (I'm a little ashamed) but I have a storage unit filled with clothes.  Some of them are old, some of them are "off season", most of them I had no idea I even owned at one time.  I think I may have my old cheerleading uniform in there?  Anyway, I rarely visit it because it's in my old hometown and making a trip out there is usually only to visit my family.  But when I do go, it's to take a trash bag filled with clothes and dump it off like forgotten memories. 
 
Well, a few weeks ago I had the chance to go through some of the bags and either trash, donate, or keep most of my hoarded items.  While most things were donated, I did keep this one dress.  I probably bought it four or five years ago and forgot about it not long after.  It's a little big on me these days, but I love the tiered chiffon and the print so I think I'm going to bring this one back to life.

If I were motivated to do so, I'd go through that whole unit and clean out everything.  I think subconsciously I want to keep certain things because they hold onto a certain memory, even if I never think about it.  It's like a tomb of forgotten past that I can visit and remember whenever I feel the need.  Maybe one day when I have a home with more than two closets I can have a special place for these things...  I think it would be much nicer than my storage unit which also houses black widows in the summer.  Some memories deserve a better home!
 
Phew, glad I got that off my chest.  I feel much better :)
