Lately, I haven’t created any posts expressing my thoughts or sharing details about my everyday life. I’m enjoying life—the ups and downs. I don’t have to blog everything, right? Right.
Moving on … As you scroll through this post you’ll see something very tragic. Many people may not document or share this, but I felt I should. It has been such a struggle to keep my shoes in pristine condition. Years ago, I used a toothbrush, suede cleaner, or shoe polish to keep my shoes in its original condition. Now, not so much. I wear them, then they’re back in a shoebox.
Months of walking for 6 to 8 minutes from the parking lot to my job wore a pair of my shoes out! Sadly, I continued to wear them to work. I was still receiving compliments from strangers stating how much they like my shoes. I realized I’m tired of leaning. Yes, leaning! So, it’s time to take them to the shoe repair place. Last time I took a pair of shoes there, I paid about the same price as I did for the shoes. Not cool. But, payday is Friday, so…
I don’t know about you, but I am a loud walker. I bought a new pair of shoes in July. But guess what? On the first day I wore these shoes I was stomping towards the car and scratched the back of the heel. I’m so over buying work shoes.
Since I really like my shoes, I’ll make sure to give them some TLC. Otherwise, I’ll continue to spend money on new shoes and repairs. And, I’m not feeling that at all. Just looking at these pictures makes me feel ashamed, and I should.
