They started off new and a deep, rich blue.

I could have kept them cleaned, ironed and β€˜perfect’ for years.

But I don’t like to play that way.

I wore them to β€˜work’.

The colors faded here and there.

I fell down a lot.

They got dirty.

The first few frays led to the first rips, then the first holes.

Just kept working, kept falling down, kept getting back up.

Do I own β€˜new’ jeans?

Yes I do.

But every once in a while, when I feel the need to dig deep and grind out some serious work…I put these on and smile.

Wearing them brings me joy.

In our current situation, I find myself wearing them more often.

I’ve had to go back to work to pivot and bounce my Speaking Business off the wall in a different direction to not only SURVIVE…but to THRIVE.

Already earning some new rips and tears as I fall down and pick myself up again…

Still working.

Still smiling.

Still wearing my favorite jeans.
