Not to brag, but growing up, I played on some pretty baller teams. With stellar teams, came our fair share of tournament championships. And with tournament championships, came a lot of free tournament championship t-shirts.
Winning free garments is infinitely more exciting as a kid than if you bought it yourself. For about a week, I would be high as a kite repping my new swag. My friends and I would ecstatically plan a certain day to wear our shirts to school. “Ok guys, on Wednesday’s let’s all wear our Chinook Cup Champions shirts!”
After that day, without fail, the shirt would be chucked into the back of my closet with all of the other virtually identical uncomfortable stiff-materialed, generic-fonted, cheesy soccer ball-adorned tournament t-shirts.
And then 10 years later, at the age of 25, when I still have a room at my parents place because I’m a professional soccer player, who happens to be female #equalplayequalpay….that’s when I realized I’ve been hoarding these t-shirts for my whole life.
The only reason I discovered my hoarding problem is because I read this book called The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up
And, dare I say it, for a slob like myself, it was indeed life changing.
I swear, tidiness makes your head feel so much clearer and freer, especially when you get home after a long day of training. I believe any amount of stress, even it’s outside of the game, will affect your performance.
I posted before and after pictures of my room in the full written piece HERE . The insane amount of wardrobes I collected is equally shocking and impressive.If you are a fellow slob, I urge you to check this book out. At the time of reading the book, my messiness didn’t bother me, but once I went through this process and was living in a tidy place, I never wanted to go back.
