"To be happy, it first takes being comfortable in your own shoes. The rest can work up from there." ~ Sophia Bush, actress
I'll admit it: I like shoe shopping. Style is always important, but if the shoes look good and feel lousy--tight, uncomfortable--they go back in the box and on the shelf.
Sometimes being comfortable with myself feels like shoe shopping. Who do I feel like today? Did I squeeze my personality into a bunch of shoulds and shouldn'ts? Did I try to fit into the latest fad--or was I true to myself, to who God made me to be?
I'm not really all about being happy because "happy" comes and goes with changes in your circumstances. But there is some fundamental truth to today's quote. Happiness--being content--starts with being comfortable with who you are.
And who you are doesn't go out of style.
So here's a question for you: If you had to describe who you are by choosing a pair of shoes, what type of shoes would you be? Are you comfortable with that?
