Shoes and choices

Standard

As a mother she felt as if she was wearing daily high heel luxury heels. There were moments when, as a wife, she felt as if she was wearing old worn out moccasins. She did not even remember if these used to be high heel shoes. What she realized is that it’s her who puts those shoes on and only she can take them off and choose a new pair of high heel luxury shoes or heavy boots or soft sneakers or fluffy slippers or light sling backs or tight sandals or barefoot…

A shoe feels tight? Try shoe stretching remedies. Feels like complaining? A rehearsal would help. Life gives endless opportunities to start anew.

It’s all about choices we make with our minds, with our hearts.

We choose roles. We choose how we play them, when we play them, with whom we play them.

In an unusually enlightening writing by an orthodox monk there was a phrase that stays with me for years “even God does not contest human choice’.  And God has a reputation of a wise. Even if he/she has never worn any shoes, at least from what we know :).
