And think about your favorite pair of shoes...
Not necessarily your cutest or most expensive shoes, but your "Go To" shoes.
You know the ones that go with EVERYTHING. The ones that you wish when you bought them, instead of buying one pair in every color... You wish you would have bought five pair in every color?
Well, I wore THOSE SHOES today.
At some point during the day I looked down at those once precious beauties, and boy had they seen their better days. I was pretty embarrassed that I even wore them into work!
I said to myself...
"You know Life, Love and Lola it's time to say goodbye. Every time you wear these you say it's going to be your last and that was at least 6 (or 12) times ago!"
And then I said to the girls at the clinic
"If you ever see me in these kicks again, take them off my feet and make me go home barefoot!"
Seriously, I think I've operated on those shoes with scissors and hot glue at least 3 times trying to revive them.
Anyhow, THOSE SHOES just went in the trash. Sad I know...
But in keeping with my New Years Resolution "To Be Happy" I had to find the good in all of this.
1. That frees up some room in my closet for another pair. YAY!
2. The trash men don't come until Saturday so I have two nights to sleep on this decision that I've made, and have the option of dumpster diving if need be.
