I love a great pair of shoes, especially heels!
A great pair of heels takes an outfit from OK to amazing in seconds. Even the way I walk changes when I have on a pair of heels. Combined that with a flowy dress or skirt and OMG I am feeling all feminine and gracefully as my hips sway from side to side. A pair of sexy heels can even sway my mood.
For me, heels are the epitome of femininity!
So, imagine when my all-time favorite heels were damaged beyond repair. I was crushed. Knowing that they had to be thrown out I still kept them in the closet and occasionally tried them on. I even made the mistake of wearing them out one night and it was the most uncomfortable fit EVER! Not only was I self-conscious but they were hella uncomfortable, although the cobbler had tried to adjust the heel itself and outwardly it looked fine, it just didn’t feel right anymore. And furthermore, the zipper looked as if it was gonna start busting out. All in all, that night I didn’t feel feminine nor sexy. Just plain ole silly for not accepting the end of something good.
They no longer served any purpose to me. It took me almost twisting my ankle and experiencing sharp discomfort at the heel of those shoes for me to accept this. Immediately after getting home, I threw those seemingly perfect shoes away.
How many times in life have you held onto something knowing that it no longer served a purpose in your life?
How many friendships or even intimate relationships have you been hell-bent on patching, knowing damn well that that bugger doesn’t care about you?
How many times have you stayed even after receiving blisters from the engagements?
How many times have you decided that you’ll work even harder on yourself only to be reminded nothing you do is good enough for someone who doesn’t want you? At what point do you make your comfort and needs a priority over others?
What are you holding onto when the only thing you feel at the time of the engagements is a deep sense of having to stifle your authentic self or at the end of the engagement a sense of being drained and depleted?
Introspection is never easy, but it is always essential. So, with that being said I am currently examining all my shoes, checking to see what’s worth holding onto and has to be discarded. Honestly, I’m also checking to see what needs to be replaced. I’m a lover of sexy high heels and with the holiday season quickly approaching I want to indulge. What’s the old adage again, out with the old, in with the new! I’m making space for beautiful shoes and experiences that are headed my way.
Where do you get your sexy, comfortable, and affordable heels from? I’m usually a Nordstrom’s Rack kinda gal, cuz of their really great selection and quality as well as affordability. But really I just love shoes so be sure to mention your favorite online store I can check it out.
