What Was I Thinking?

I reached for the green top and thought, 'What was I thinking?'

I bought a shirt at Eddie Bauer years ago. It was a shade of green that I just love. I would wear it to take my girls to school, I would wear it when I went on errands and I would choose to wear it when the family hung out together on the weekends. It was my "go-to" shirt.

But one day I looked at it and thought 'What was I thinking?!'

It was shapeless. It wasn't long enough. It looked bad with my skin tone.

Why in the world had I chosen this shirt? How is it that I let days, months, years go by thinking that I looked good in this top?!

It now lays in the Goodwill pile.

I wonder who the next victim in my closet will be?
