I am always looking for the perfect jeans. I feel that everyone is always looking for the best fitting and great looking jeans. Today, I went through a pile of jeans that had been in my closet for years.
First, I found a pair of jeans which I was able to make jorts out of. Jorts (jean shorts) are one of my signature looks. I was worrying I wouldn't have fresh jorts for this summer. Problem solved.
Next, I found jeans I wore when I was skinnier. Back then I biked every day, I ate healthy and lost 40 pounds. It felt good to have lost that weight. It felt good the way it happened. I loved those pairs of jeans. I loved the way they looked on my body. I really liked being a size 16. I wanted to be smaller but it didn't happen. I think I got mad because everything didn't change because I was smaller. I had my heart broken and slowly gained the weight back.
I was going to give those size 16 jeans away but then I remembered how much I loved being a size 16. I decided not to give up hope about bring there again. I kept these jeans.
I then found jeans that fit me now. They are a good shape and real denim. I folded them and added them to my current rotation of jeans. I had been longing for new jeans but wasn't finding jeans that I loved. They weren't the right fit, the right look or the right denim.
I also found more jeans that I am going to donate to the Goodwill.
I had a lot of jeans. I have a lot of stuff. I think the next time I am longing, I need to look at what I have and look at my piles.
