Shoes perform a basic function – they shelter and protect the feet. I have a closet full of functional shoes and others designed for pure aesthetic. Most of them have a place on or hanging from a shelf, some are in boxes, other odd-shaped ones are thrown into the general area. Some of my shoes serve more time than others, happily I hope. After the closet lights are turned out, and the door is shut do they pillow talk? Do they have discussions on where they have been, what they did, who they saw? Do they have a hierarchy of status among themselves based on time worn or age?
Seriously though, what metaphorical shoes am I going to need for shelter and protection during the upcoming career transition and life path changes?
Ostrich boa feather slippers – for when I need to delicately tip toe around issues
Floral thongs – for when I want to channel creativity
Sturdy flat spinster tie-ups – for when I need support and solid landings
Boots – for when I need to stomp something or someone, for thorough self-protection
Stiletto platforms pumps – for walking high above the bull and mire
Fitness – for steadfast control, stamina, and guidance
Sandals – for keeping cool in hot situations
As other needs come along, I’m sure I’ll find a “shoe” to fit the situation– what shoes have been useful for you?0 Be the 1st to recommend
