this is what is left of my shoes when i remove all my leather ones.
the new ballet flats from payless shoes.
the oxfords from payless shoes.
and these burberry sandals.
i also have 2 pairs of tennis shoes.
oh and lets not forget the tall rubber boots that i do my gardening in.
quite a collection.
it has only been a little over a week since i made this decision to go vegan with my wardrobe and i already feel the grip of loss lessening.
i really wondered how letting things go was going to feel. turns out it's a lot like when i initially went vegan with my diet. a lightness has replaced the fear.
why do i dread letting go? every time i do let go of something the feeling has been good.
it is a sad state of affairs when one discovers that her identity is tied up in a pair of old 2nd hand boots.
but that is the truth.
the plan is to slowly and thoughtfully (your comments were not lost on me yesterday)
replace some of my beloved's.
