saying goodbye to my first pair of training shoes

Monday, September 12, 2011

I never had any children. Maybe I sometimes get teary eyed over the silliest things. I cried the other day when I realized that I had worn out my first pair of real athletic shoes. I remembered the day I got them and the empowerment I felt when I first put them on. The gratitude I felt towards those wornout things for inspiring me to continue....well its a good thing they cant talk to me.Here's a silly thought: maybe I should have them bronzed like people used to do with baby shoes.Although with the size my feet are they would be a better doorstop than a shelf ornament. That makes me laugh.And that's part of what those shoes have created in me: a whole lot more joy in my life ! So thanks shoes. I'll put you away in your original box and someday in the future when I am cleaning out my closets I'll come across you and wonder why I held on to you.We are meant to move on.And so I can..because of you.

    I wear mine around the house to casual wear, I have so many pairs that are retired.. When they fall to bits I then throw them away..
