what your shoes say about you
For me, shoes are my most visible indicator of my true self in the most immediate way. It’s not necessarily a good thing to be an introvert or to be a non-goat in a lot of ways, but the way a brand like Nike or Adidas, or any other athlete, dress or style can say something about the kind of person they are is one of the most striking things about me.
Some people may say that my shoes are my biggest, most easily identifiable sign of self-awareness, and while I love that quote, I’m not sure that this is quite right. There are many other indicators of my true self, which are things like my height, my weight, the color of my eyes, the way my clothes are worn, the way I walk, the way I speak, the way I act, the way I think.
Some of these indicators are things that others notice, like the fact that you walk with a limp, but if you ask me, the real indicator is not the limp. It’s your shoes. I’ve been wearing these sneakers for two years now. They are really comfortable and have gotten me to places that I never thought I would.
The way you walk is another kind of indicator. There is no one way to walk. I walk with a lot of different steps. I walk like I’m trying to get somewhere. I walk with a lot of pauses. People who are in a hurry tend to make that a more noticeable part of their walk, as a way to make themselves seem more dynamic. I walk with a lot of slow steps. I really don’t think about what I’m doing.
The fact is that those who walk on foot usually get a lot of hits in their stride. That tends to be the time to make a decision. If you’re going to walk, you have to do something else to make a decision. I walk with a lot of slow steps. I really dont think of what Im doing.
You can be walking and still be considering an answer to a question. You can be walking and be thinking about a decision, or you can be walking with a completely different purpose in mind. I walk with a lot of slow steps. I really dont think about what Im doing. The fact is that those who walk on foot usually get a lot of hits in their stride. That tends to be the time to make a decision.
Well, I’ve been listening to too many people talk about how walking while mulling over a decision is the worst thing to do. I’ve also been telling you that the fact that you’re walking is one of the things that lets you outrank you in search rankings. So I’d say walking is a good way to make a decision.
It’s a pretty good way to not get hit in the butt. I’ve also seen plenty of people walking to and from the office/school without a care in the world. Some people take pride in the fact that they aren’t afraid to make a call and some people make a call and don’t get hit in the butt.
I would say that walking is the second worst thing to do. Thats saying things like “I hate working in my office and I dont want to walk to work” or “I hate eating at home and I dont want to walk to eat”. But really its just about taking care of yourself. Its a good way to keep your self-esteem up. People who walk do alot of things that most people dont need to do, but you dont always have to do them.
I am not one to be jealous of people who wear good shoes. I have a pair of shoes that arent bad and I have a pair that arent good. But what makes me feel better about it is its not that I wear them and I dont feel like I am wearing them, but that I am in them and I have a good pair of feet. Thats a good feeling.
