Shoe Personality of the Week: 10/19


When I was in high school, purple was my favorite color [long since changed to red]. I guess royalty is attracted to royalty. These shoes look regal and insist that you walk with your head held high. Despite the events of the last couple of weeks--subconscious anxiety over potential job loss, death, break ups, sickness, etc.--I am reminded by this splendid shoe to keep my head held high. If I walk with my eyes on the ground I could miss the opportunity in front of me, only catching its shoes as it walks by me. Tragedy is a part of life, but it comes to remind us how precious life is and how thankful we are. I am faced by examples everyday of how truly wonderful my life is, even in the "not so positive" (thanks S.D.) moments. With every difficulty we face, like my mother always says, "this too shall pass." She hasn't steered me wrong yet, these things always move on. Actually, I move on from them.

In the spirit of all this purple passion...

Watch me move.
