Remember the Hans Christian fable of The Red Shoes? Do not scoff at the girl and her foolishness. As we get older in life and start ‘owning’ things, we all behave like that poor girl in red shoes. We buy ‘things’ and soon those things start owning and controlling us.
This is an amazing story and worth remembering. Sure as a kid when you read it, you thought how could such a shoe exist..and would you have to lose your legs to get rid of a shoe. Yes it is imaginary a story, yes it sounds impossible.
Just sit back and wonder…have you given up on a relationship because you wanted to own something?
For those who have not read the Red Shoes………..here is a small pdf………..it is a small 10 minute read and your kids will enjoy it too………..
How Many of Us Wear the Red Shoes?
We should learn to take control of our own “red shoes” before they take control of us.
