Reflecting on Getting What You Give

“If you want love and abundance in your life, give it away.” ~ Mark Twain

When it comes to love and abundance, you get what you give. So give it away freely.  I’m reminded of the Red Hot Chili Peppers “Give It Away,” a song inspired by this concept. You get joy out of giving, abundance out of acceptance of what you have.

Over the past few months, as my pregnant body wouldn’t allow for me to fit into much of my wardrobe, I’ve been inspired to cut down my clothes. I’ve been focused on selling them, giving them away and recycling them. I only need about 25-30 items to be comfortable, well dressed, and ready to take on the world. At the same time, this process has made me recognize the abundance I have. The abundance of clothing, but also, the abundance and love I can have for my wardrobe when it’s simplified. Marie Kondo would be proud!
