Day 5: My Favorite Quote

My Favorite Quote

Shoes can affect your personality and your mood.  Have you ever noticed how putting on a pair of sneakers makes you feel shlumpy?  But putting on a pair of stilettos makes you feel sexy?  When I received that postcard from a friend, I was going through a difficult time in my life ~ I wasn’t sure where I was or what I was doing with myself.  I honestly felt like I was emotionally and spiritually tapped out and I didn’t know how to pull myself together and then that postcard arrived in the mail…

It was just what I needed to get myself in gear.  I put on my cutest shoes and reminded myself of all that I had accomplished: I had served in the Army when no one thought I could do it and I had obtained two Master’s degrees while raising four kids and undergoing treatment for cancer.  I wasn’t giving myself credit, I was focusing on a momentary blip in my life instead of seeing my life as a whole.  And that postcard helped me to refocus.
