THE ONE PAIR OF SHOES PHILOSOPHY

THE ONE PAIR OF SHOES PHILOSOPHY As we have mentioned in previous posts, we are tired of running after ownership.
These day, I only buy what I need and I am lot happier like that.
I went through a phase when actually buying something asked me a lot of thinking.
I can call it the de-conditioning phase.
After having lived a life of owning, accumulating, compulsive shopping, the drawback phase implied an excess the other way.

Now things are settling and I buy what I need with little hesitation, I have stopped torturing myself mentally by over thinking if I really needed the stuff.
Because at the end, if you do that, you will always end up thinking that potentially you could do without etc and then you end up doing nothing.

Last week, I noticed my feet were getting sore and that for the last few weeks I had been walking an awful lot more than I use to.
This is excellent news and I love it.
But by shoes, which are perfectly fine, are definitely not walking shoes.
They are very comfortable slippers like shoes that suffice when I don’t have to walk around Nerja all day but lately, I have been doing just that and they are not doing the trick, or not well.

So I decided to invest in a new pair of shoes, New Balance trainers because this is the best pair of walking shoes I have ever owned when I was a teenager and I thought I could do with that right now.
And as a consequence, I put my old pair of shoes (not that old actually) in the the new box, wrote a « Help yourself if you need them » on the box and put them in front of our shop when I left yesterday.

As I wrote in previous post, there are more and more homeless people in Nerja and this is saddening and worrying.
I assumed someone could really benefit from my pair shoe better than any cupboard.
Doing this, I own very few pieces of clothing, just enough to stay clean and functional and honestly it feels good ! How many pieces of clothing have I owned that just stood there on a hanger for months or years, benefiting no one ? And you, what do you own, could you adapt to the one pair of shoes philosophy ?
