My favorite shoes

Essential Takeaway: Put the slippers away

I took a break, but it’s time to come back!  I will re-introduce myself to those that may not know me. I am a homeschooling mom of 5 kiddos. We have always homeschooled, so that part of our life hasn’t changed much. My oldest is a son, 22, attending the University of Utah.  Next is a daughter, 19, serving a mission in California. I have a daughter 16, a son 13 and the baby girl 8. I am a recovering sugar addict and am close to 200 days of bright line eating.  This is a big deal for me because my favorite thing used to be chocolate. Now my new favorite thing is morning walks. I am most comfortable in my walking shoes, or my new slippers. I wear different kinds of shoes depending on what the day requires from me. Lately, I want to wear my slippers, keep my head down, and stay inside my house. My slippers represent safety and comfort. Safety and comfort do not require sacrifice or provide growth.  I can not hide in my slippers any longer. It is time to get to work. It is time to put on my worn out working shoes and get back at it. It is time to stand up. It is time to stand for something and stand with the very few brave souls that are already standing. What shoes are you going to put on?
