New Shoes




Walking along the corridor to the office with the newly bought Camel leather shoes, I proceed with confidence and pleasure. I walk with big strides and I enjoy every single step I take. Sometimes, a pair of stylish and comfortable shoes do boost our self-esteem and keep us going in life.

But I find it difficult to say goodbye to my worn out shoes. They have been with me for the pass many years. They still feel comfortable and elegance. I just can't simply throw them away. So once in a while, I still wear them to work and feel the company of a good old friend.

I know that dwelling in the past is not good for me. It is stressful, time consuming, and emotionally draining. And I know that I have a whole life ahead of me, and a bright future to look forward to. But sometimes when I am alone, uncontrollably I will dig deep into my memories and wonder away in the past. Yeah, sometimes they do help me to recover somethings, but sometimes emotions break loose and .....

We are like a car moving forward on a journey. We are to concentrate on our route ahead. Our hands must be steady on the wheel and our legs on the pedals. we are to be clear-minded and alert. There are many twists and turns along the way. The road maybe rough and unpredictable, or it maybe smooth going and calm. Nights and days we drive until we reach our eternal home.

Yeah, we do stop along the way. We take a short break to rest, to have some food and drink, and to have fun. We refuel our car and do maintenance services. But the journey continues...

Putting on my new shoes, I continue my journey.

Yeah, the new shoes feels much better for the journey ahead...

I love your comparison between the shoes and our journey of life. I have saved many pairs of old shoes, then realized that the new ones feel better than them now. It's the same with life. Looking back is fine, but only short glances.

I also keep old shoes. I usually wear them around the house. The segue from shoes to life was interesting. I love reminiscing, but Ratty is right...only for short periods of time.

Ohh..I miss your entries for past weeks because of my slow net connection. Well, I kept my old shoes but sometimes I used it. Like our journey of our life, we need to look back and look what life's brought us from our past. Since, we have a new shoes now, we're able to take care for it by using the shoe polish. Like our life we need to aware for what life bring about to have a healthy life. God bless you Yeo Kee Hui and your family.
