Letting Go


Disclaimer: This is not a Marie Kondo post…

I’ve always been pretty good about giving up things I don’t use or that don’t fit.
Where I’ve been slow is a few precious things that are memories of another me, a younger me, a sexier me (in my mind) before things sagged and so forth.
Women have this part of them that ages in surprising ways, and it is not the wrinkles!

So here are these fringed cowgirl gloves, flirtaceous, lovely dusky blue leather
with white painted fringe… I fell in love with them in that way where you know an
article of clothing is your soulmate… guys I don’t know if you do this.

Anyhow, my arthritic hands don’t fit them anymore  *sob*
and I have held onto them for five years but really, someone should be loving them.

As part of my art journaling, which I am so ready to teach now, I lovingly painted them, wrote about them, and can now gift them to someone who will love them.

    I have three pairs of exquisite spike heels that I will never wear again. But I love them…so I understand.

    I do enjoy seeing this ‘wild child’ side of you. Those gloves are knock-out!
