Life is Short — Buy The Shoes!

 High heel shoes



“Life is short—buy the shoes.”  This is a small sentence, although packed with some good advice. I took a little writing journal with me on my recent vacation and this quote was the title of the journal.


The cover had a pretty caricature of a girl, happily skipping among flowers while wearing pink stilettos, which captured my attention. Anybody who knows me, knows how much I love shoes, so buying the journal was a no brainer for me.

I found the cute little journal while looking around in the stationery section of a gift store in Arizona. Every time I picked it up, it reminded me not to hem and haw over little decisions in life which we tend to  let grow so grand sometimes in our thoughts. And I bought it.

With so much sickness and evil in the world, we shouldn’t be burdening ourselves with petty worries. We have to remember to have gratitude in the little moments that make us feel happy.

If we come across some item that makes us feel good and brings us a smile then I say indulge. You like it, you buy it! If it doesn’t cut into your life savings or living budget, and it brings you joy, then go for it!

“Sometimes it’s the little things in life that bring us pleasure and can fill a dark day with sunnier skies.”

    Yes sometimes Deb we who have no reason to grumble can forget how petty our grumbles in life can be..Especially when compare our lives to others around the world who have so little..
    I just replied on my own post to someone, And said how wide are the smiles in the African Villages, the slums of India, where people have only what they often stand up in.. And yet they still smile… Because they hold within them that Divine love of contentment within themselves… Some thing we in our material world seldom find, For we constantly crave for something else to make us have that feel good factor..

    Great reminders Deb.. You said ” “Sometimes it’s the little things in life that bring us pleasure and can fill a dark day with sunnier skies.”,,,

    I so agree..
    Bless you.. Sue

    It is indeed the little things in life that bring us the most joy. It looks like an adorable journal. I am so anxious to hear what you’re going to fill it with. Looks like it might be the spark of another book! 😉

    I’m mad for notebooks and have many kinds–way too many, but when they call to me, I grab them. Some are too pretty to write in. Bizaare? Who cares? At least I won’t worry about running out of paper. 😀

      Lol, I’m the same way! You don’t even want to know how many I have stashed away. So, not so bizarre! 🙂

    Hi Debby,
    How cool to find you here, and right in front of me, at Elena’s linky party. #Midlifeluv
    I told Wayne I want to start watching Grey’s Anatomy–your influence! Regarding your post, too funny–buy the shoes. I agree; it’s the little things in life that bring us joy.

      Lol, Hi Janice! What a coincidence . . . or not? Well, I finally took the time to figure out those linky blogs last night, so look out for me on yours! And of course, BUY THE SHOES! Looking forward to having a Greys pal directly instead of vicariously through Wayne, lol. 🙂
