For years I was unable to walk as I wanted to. My feet would throb with pain at the very thought of continually moving forward.
I often wondered what was the problem why was I in so much pain and what did I ever do to deserve it.
At some point in life I found myself contemplating all that I have done. I thought about all that I have been through in an effort to seek answers for why I was going through this.
I was unable to wear flats or heels or boots instead I was left with only wearing comfortable tennis shoes.
When I walked my stride would have to be very slow I would have to pace myself so that I wouldn’t overstrain myself.
I had been going through a battle which lasted for what seems like forever and in the mist of that battle coming to an end.
I recall suddenly realizing that my feet no longer hurt. I was in a position to where I was left with no choice but to wear flats.
during the final chapter of this very lengthy and long battle I recall putting my hands on my feet and I sat there to praying asking God to heal my feet so that they would be no more pain.
I asked and it was done not only was I able to wear flats for that one particular day I’ve been wearing them ever since.
So here I am today with tennis shoes on my feet, but this time the journey is much different. I wear these tennis shoes so that I can walk my way to a healthier and better lifestyle.
And it’s the small changes that end of amounting to bigger lifestyle advances.
I’ve managed to download a pedometer this helps me to become accountable with keeping myself aware of wanting to move more throughout the day knowing that each step is counted.
To most this might not appear to be much, but to me it means a lot. This time next year things will have improved.
