Funny story about these jeans… they ALMOST didn’t make it into my capsule. I literally pulled them out one day before I created my Summer 2015 post. I am SO glad I did. I’m realizing that I probably could have gotten away with just this pair of jeans for the entire summer. The funny thing is, these jeans are one of the oldest items that I own. They just keep giving and giving. God bless them.
Moving on… David and I were recently talking about how doing the capsule wardrobe has been teaching me so much about discipline. What I’m realizing is that when you have discipline in one area of your life, it follows in other areas of your life. I remember a pastor once saying “feelings follow focus.” That has stuck with me ever since because it is exactly right! I never felt like I could accomplish this whole capsule wardrobe business until I tried it. The more I focus on doing it the more I feel capable of it. And now, the discipline of doing a capsule wardrobe is literally trickling down into all other areas of my life. I’ve been eating healthier, exercising regularly, reading more… I even practiced the piano (I haven’t done that in ages)! Is doing a capsule wardrobe a magic cure all? Absolutely not. Do we all need more discipline in our lives? Probably. Whatever that looks like for you, I encourage you to pursue something that requires discipline. It is so trans-formative to challenge yourself in that area. What about you? Have you ever noticed the discipline compound effect in your lives? I’d love to hear about it!
