Yes, I swear this is possible. I have been an avid shoe whore since 2004 and I have grown, loved, and expanded my tastes through the past few years. Its also been true that I wear shoes to get a reaction out of people…trust me it works. There is a one guy at my Church (you will notice through my blog I go to Church a lot but it will not be thaaaaat kind of blog) who looks to see if I have purchased any new kicks within the last week. Sometimes I feel as though I have let him down if I have worn them repeatedly but I do have my favorites.
Through my exploration of all things shoes I have learned a few life lessons…its true and extremely applicable.
- You always remember your first love. I have had the same red high heels and they will forever be my favorites no matter how beat up they get. And in turn, I will always remember my first love fondly despite the failing of our relationship. An incredible experience that inspired and taught me about my future relationships.
- Grin and bear the pain…eventually it will get better. We have all tried to break in shoes and suffer, I mean, really suffer through the pain to get to the joy and comfort on the other side. Can’t say I haven’t found real world applications for this notion, I mean, c’mon, we have all been in situations that we just put up with and eventually its gets better. Keep smiling…eventually it becomes a true smile.
- Everything is fixable (except death). There is a old shoe cobbler in every city who will for a reasonable price fix everything on your beloved shoes. My motto at work is unless you killed someone, its fixable. Might take a bit of work but in the end everything works out. I swear by this!
Above is today’s lust…not sure where I would wear them but I believe I need them just in case…
