Those of you who have been following for awhile have heard this before, but early on blogging and clothing took up way too much space in my head and life. What started as a hobby to get me feeling good in clothes again, turned into an all consuming monster. Almost two years ago I began to pull back the reins and changed the name of my blog to reflect who I am, "Clothed with Grace," more than ever just wearing clothes and always looking for "My New Favorite Outfit."
Looking though my feed brought back so many emotions and showed so clearly my obsession with clothes. Mathew 6:21 says, "For where your treasure is, there your heart is also." It was clear my treasure was in my closet and a focus on me and growing my blog. I am soooo glad that is no longer where my treasure is. Letting anything take up too much head space that isn't eternal is never a good idea. Whether it's Social Media, Pinterest, food, coffee, Target....whatever. If it does't have eternal value, what's the point?
As I was deleting Instagram photos the ones I kept were pictures of my family and images sharing my faith. Now, I still have some #OOTD pictures on there from this last year scattered amongst the MANY pictures of my kids, but it's no where near how my old feed looked a few years back-consumed with pictures of clothes.
So many more important things have happened since this blog started than just me wearing clothes, and I'm very thankful for that! Thanks to those of you who have followed along!
