I learned something new the other day. When trying on a new pair of shoes, the test for the perfect fit is if you feel lighter wearing the shoes. WOW – how many pairs of shoes have I purchased in my lifetime (don’t go there!!) because of the color, style, uniqueness or I simply just had to have them with never a thought of feeling lighter? In fact, some of the shoes were not comfortable at all and as a result I suffered when wearing them.
The analogy that comes to mind is this: some of my attitudes, behaviors, and beliefs were not comfortable, and yet I held on to them for whatever reason. Today, I don’t have to do that. The pain is not worth the price. What unnecessary pain are you holding on to and living with?
