That’s the thing about loving someone, after a while it just becomes second nature, something you don’t have to necessarily think about except to stop doing. It’s that pair of shoes you reach for every morning and lace up your foot, if you want to wear something different you have to make a conscious decision to reach for something new. That new pair of shoes might even be better, prettier, less stained, but they will find ways of reminding you of the old, even if only because they aren’t broken in quite right.
I’ve been trying on new shoes, lately. The shoes I would probably buy are only available online and they aren’t shipping to my area for a while. I should have just bought those shoes when I had the chance. Still, it’s fun to shop, right?
I don’t know what I need. Leather thigh-highs? Some new sporty trainers? Classic black pumps? Something I can hike in? Strappy sandals? Fur-lined weather-proofed cozy things?
There’s so many options it’s exhausting but who wants to go barefoot? Not I.
