Bear with me here a moment…..(or is it bare?)—this really does relate to the law of attraction, but we just need to build the story first. So I have a nice pair of winter boots that I let my ever growing daughter borrow (she is 9 and is outpacing me in every way, but that is another story). The sole of the boot came off at her school for unknown reasons. I bought Shoe Goo and fixed the boot and wore it during a heavy snow day a couple of weeks ago. (This is really going somewhere if anyone is still reading=-)
Everything was going well, until the last mile and the sole started flopping around in the snow packed streets of Chicago, and then into Trader Joes where I needed to shop (this was slightly embarrassing even for a Laverty=-). So I was half dragging and half shuffling my way with this broken shoe (sorry Shoe Goo Company). I finally arrived home safely.
The next day my ankle started hurting, and I couldn’t figure out what had happened (I thought back to my workout the previous day). Then I realized, my one mile of shuffling created some internal damage to my ankle and foot!!!!! I mean it hurt for SIX DAYS! It got me to thinking about the Laws of Attraction (which almost everything does as you can see from these blog stories). I was thinking about how sometimes I will have negative thought patterns or let my monkey mind take over my life for the moment…and then I was asking myself what kind of INTERNAL damage am I doing to my body and spirit as a result!!!!!???? I believe in the mind body connection and what Deepak Chopra writes about, and somehow my little shoe experience made it all the more real for me.
Personally, I am going to do my best to focus on the positive, on what I want, on what is good and what I like about someone as much as possible….along with making sure I have good boots for my winter adventures=-)
Laverty Life Links: Consider where you may be dragging around a broken shoe in your mind and life and how you can shift that thought or pattern towards something whole, complete and affirmative. We all have rough moments or days to be sure, it seems to me that some of mine are wholly self-created and not really necessary at all=-)
