One Shoe Can Change Your Life – Cinderella

I miss the days when I could  wear high-heeled sandels and shoes to work.  Stand and walk, even run,  around all day long, hour after hour, day after day, year after year.  Then I became pregnant and my feet starting asking for some loving care.  They asked loudly, and they have not stopped yet!!  I slowly started to wear a lower heel.  Love a kitten heel today. I had to adapt because the bottom line is I love shoes!!!  So Ichanged my shoe style, I like to walk and I really give my feet and legs a work out each and every day.

There are plenty of women who love shoes as much as I do.  If you came to my job you would see that every one of us  has a U.S. mail carrying carton under our desk filled with shoes/slippers/sneakers that stay in the office ….just in case. There are shoes in all colors for every outfit, mood and occasion.  Meeting friends for dinner after work?  Got a shoe for that.  Rain? Snow?  No problem, got a old shoe for that.   I go to work in sneakers and then pick a pair of shoes  right out of the bin under my desk.

So I might start out with one pair of shoes in the morning and end the day with another more comfy pair in the afternoon.  The men in the office try to understand, but I don’t think they ever will.  It’s a woman thing.

Remember you need to put on your sunscreen 30 minutes before you go out in the sun.  Always reapply after swimming.  I hope you are not like me, I always apply when I get to the beach or pool.  Take additional care when sunning.  Wear a hat and sunglasses to  armor yourself against too much sun exposure.

The Sun is a big factor in aging skin and skin cancer.  Don’t forget we only need 15 minutes a day of the  sun.
