If The Shoe Fits, Wear It!

You've all heard it said - "If the shoe fits, wear it."

I thought this morning about the meaning of this saying.

Like shoes, life doesn't come in just one size and often times it doesn't come in the size we want. We struggle with our life and spend so much time looking for the one we think should fit. We want our life to look good. We want others to notice our life. But, in trying to please others, or not accepting the place we are in life, we often find ourselves in an ill-fitting, unhappy life. We wear a life that is not a good fit and that hurts.

So, when we finally realize we are living the life that feels good, doesn't hurt ourselves or others, has a really good fit, then we should wear it!

Paraphrased - "Get a life, get on with life." or "Stop belaboring the little things and celebrate the big."

Wouldn't it be nice if we could all find the right shoes early in life.
Life is a good thing - celebrate it.

Just one of Marty's Musings.


  1. I have ALWAYS had the hardest time finding shoes that fit. I wonder if that says something about my life. And I'm really only looking for basic, comfortable, black shoes.

    Perhaps I should look for a different kind of shoe?

    Great post!

  2. Thanks Kim....I too have always strugged with shoes and life. I guess that's why I put the two together today. Perhaps we shouldn't look for more shoes, but just enjoy the ones we now have!

  3. Fantastic post, Marty. Life is what we make of it, isn't it.
