Well if that isn't the biggest clump of dog shit on my brand new Vince shoes!!! A picture does tell a thousand words.
When I sat down to write during one of my "wake ups", one of the first theories that came to mind was the dog shit theory. There have been three incidences in the past couple weeks, and I feel compelled to share. Plus I have truly committed to wearing my heart on my sleeve and sharing it with whoever cares to read this blog. I mean really???
First it was my tennies while on a walk with Cleo my little black dog. I stepped in a huge pile, and just took off the disgusting shoes right away. They needed a good excuse to be thrown away anyway.
And then my Rocket Dog favorite nasty old clogs were another thing! But now my beautiful new treasured Vince Camuto shoes, and on the first day I wore them. Do you see all that dog shit caked in there?
Ok, ok, I will tell you the theory now, take it for what it is. It goes something like this: If I were wearing these amazing shoes, and I walked into your home with a clump of poo attached to my beautiful shoes, would you be ok with that?
I think not. Just, no. JUST SAY NO! The translation carries over into life's relationships in this way. . . Just be done with other people's behavior if you do not like it. It is stinky., and I say, "No thank you."
It doesn't matter who you are or where you came from honay! Shit is shit no matter what and let's not spread it around. If someone walks into your life, your house, your conversation, and you can smell the shit, kindly call it out, speaking your truth. I am trying this on a lot lately and it is not nearly as eloquent as I would like it to be, it is very uncomfortable, and at first not so easy. The idea remains the same even if you want to call it out inwardly, as long as you're being honest with yourself and speaking from the heart. But I have one girlfriend who calls it out and then laughs, humor being good medicine! If I don't laugh at myself and my poor shoes I will cry.
Watch where you step ladies, there is a lot of yucky stuff out there, it is very easy to get sucked in to all the shit!!
On a positive note, I loved Vince's mission statement on the inside of the shoe box! xo
