One Size Fits All

Posted: May 21, 2011 in Uncategorized

A friend of mine went shopping a few days ago. While he was at
the mall he found a pair of shoes at the Nike outlet. He tried them on but they
were a size 10 and he wears a size 11. They were too small but he loved the
look of them and the price was right as well.
He decided to buy them and take a chance on them becoming the right size
over time. He was so excited to show off his new shoes at work so he put them
on Monday morning. It was a little uncomfortable while driving but he made it
to work. As he strolled into the job everyone commented on how he was walking trying to show off his new shoes but he was really walking funny because the shoes were hurting his feet. When he got home, his shoes had worn the sides of his feet so badly that they were beginning to bleed. He told me he should have left those shoes where they were.

Can you imagine walking around with shoes that are at least
one size too small for you? What about going around with a job that doesn’t
fit? Or how about being in a house or car that you know doesn’t fit your life
style but you think you can stretch it out because of the price? Better yet,
how about being in a relationship that has been rubbing you raw and making your heart bleed from the pain? Our life isn’t made for everything just to fit.  We have to make sure that no matter what it is, it has to fit who we are and what we are really about. If we don’t, the pain from trying to make it fit will be worse than walking around with bunions.

    Beautifully crafted. I think I wore those same shoes, when I was about 18 and camping. My toe nail turned black and I had to borrow sneakers from a guy with about size 11 feet to get me out of the woods! 🙂
