Blistered Battered and Bewildered
I had to run to keep up with MTM. I mean, really run.
“We’re not going to make the train if you don’t come on.” That he carried two stuffed suitcases and one full briefcase to my demure purse made my lagging inexcusable. I ground my teeth and tried to step up.
Liquid oozed inside my right shoe. Stuck my toes together. A sensation too familiar. Too soon.
After five weeks of walking, FIVE WEEKS of abusing my feet day-after-doggone-day………..I have another blister. Fourth toe. Right foot.
I don’t think my feet will ever be the same.
And as I head home, I wouldn’t trade the agony for a lifetime of comfort and pretty feet. I know I can do anything.
Even when it hurts.
Especially when it hurts.
Because I choose where I put my focus. Step by step. Second by second. The only thing that can stop me is ME.
Have you had an experience that helped you shift your focus, Dear Reader?
