I was going through my clothes the other day to move some out. I spied my favorite blue jeans that I hadn’t worn in many years. I was delighted – it felt like springtime. And then I tried them on – a perfect fit. Joy!
I noticed there was a 1-inch hole near the left back pocket. I had another pair of old jeans and decided I could use that for a patch. It turned out the seamstress didn’t need them, so I left that pair behind.
Those jeans fit because I shed a few pounds and feel fabulous. Trust me when I say it’s not just about the pounds. I shed a lot of other things too, and will continue to do so.
Backstory: I was about 16 years old when my mother tried many times to throw away my favorite blue jeans with several holes. If they were gone, I knew exactly where they were – the garbage. A couple of times I even caught them just before the garbagemen arrived. I had a sixth sense about it. It infuriated my mother. In the end, I was outfoxed.
The law of attraction is always conspiring. I shared the topic of my blog with a friend earlier in the day. She said that’s funny. Turns out she’s going through the exact same thing with her 17-year-old daughter, only this situation involved two pairs of jeans. We laughed. I thought, ‘Oh, let her have them,’ but what comes out of my mouth, ‘burn them.’ (LOL) We laughed.
It truly is about the simple things in life. I’m wearing my new old blue jeans as I write this blog. They feel so good. Kind of like an old T-shirt – I did find one of those too!
Peace, Joy, Love and Light!
