So This Happened Today

03 Apr

I taught a class for our clients at work. I got up after to talk with a client, and it felt like one leg was an inch shorter than the other. I tried really hard to be attentive and responsive to the client’s questions, but all I could think about was why one leg felt longer than the other.

I tried to check out my feet discretely, but I didn’t see an answer to my troubles. Finally, after the client left, which felt like forever as I was trying to decipher what was wrong, I was able to turn around and look at my seat. What do I see under the table? The sole of my shoe!

It was super annoying to walk around the rest of the day like that (especially stairs), but I had no other shoes with me. Furthermore, I wasn’t planning on going home after work. I wanted to volunteer at my church’s Free Store.

I finally decided to tell them I’d be late to Free Store and went to Meijer for shoes. So glad I did! It felt instantly better to feel the ground beneath my feet at the same distance from my hips. I was a very happy volunteer with very happy feet.

The old shoes will visit the Shoe Smith to make a full recovery of the soul with a reattached sole.

Moral of the story: Balance is vital to a happy life.
