If I were a pair of shoes, I’d definitely be a pair of converse! A, first I didn’t think there would be a whole lot to this blog post! But as I started writing it, I realized that I did find a higher meaning regarding happiness. Who would’ve thought a simple pair of converse shoes would lead me to look within and evaluate my thoughts? Wowzers. And by the by, what are your fave shoes?! Totally curious.
So, I have a few pairs of chucks, but my favorite ones are a pair of very well loved gray low tops (they are too well loved to show a picture haha so I chose another pair to photograph) and my beloved DC Aquaman converse. Which by the way in case you were wondering, I was a huge Aquaman fan before he became popular, along with Flash and Swamp Thing. When the Aquaman shoes were first released I had to have a pair instantly. These shoes have been with me around the block more than a few times. When I put them on they instantly made me happy! Plain and simple. I mean, shouldn’t all shoes make us feel this way?! Haha! If only it were that simple, right?! To be happy because of a pair of shoes? I know when I buy a gorgeous pair of heels I’m happy for a little bit until I have buyers remorse and wish I hadn’t spent the money.
Wayyyy off track here. My point is, yes, a pair of cute comic chucks, or maybe green chucks (if you prefer that color) have the ability to make me happy, but I really think it’s because I made a choice to BE HAPPY. I am really working on practicing my ability to choose and to choose wisely. There are a lot of books that talk about happiness being a choice, that our feelings are our emotional guidance system etc. So when we are upset and feeling crummy, we must remember that WE are in charge of how we feel. I know it’s easy to say this person hurt my feelings or that person was so rude and now I’m in a bad mood etc. but really they are just being themselves and doing what they do. We are in charge of how we react to them. We can choose to give over our power to what they’ve said or done or we can choose to allow them to be themselves and let. it. go. Sooooooo much easier said than done, I know, but that’s my rant for this week.
Have a happy day! Remember, it’s a choice!!
