Last night when I was thinking about what I would wear to work today, I thought I would rummage through my old jeans to see if any of them would fit. I don't usual do this, but I had hopes.
About 9months ago, I put clothes in a bag to give to the salvation army. These clothes included three pairs of jeans and a couple of shirts. The reason behind giving them to charity was because they no longer fit, they were made for when I was skinny. I wasn't able to wear these clothes for a couple of years now and I just wanted to get rid of seeing them. Well, I never dropped the clothes off. This bag has been hiding in my closet since then until last night.
As I was preparing for my outfit for today, I thought "Man I wear the same jeans almost every Friday, I wonder if my old jeans fit." I was hesitant at first, thinking if they don't fit will this bum me out?! Should I even bother?! Is it worth it?! Will I go into total meltdown?!
But I went ahead anyway and tried them all on and to my sunrise they actually fit. One pair was even too big!
HALLELUJAH!!! The angels were singing!!
I am so excited. I have not been able to wear these jeans for 4 years!! That's right, 4 years!!!
What a great way to start off the weekend! There was a reason why I didn't drop those clothes off to charity.
