but they end up choosing the one they feel comfortable with.

Finding The Right Shoes And The Right Partner

Scouting the malls for the perfect pair of shoes is like searching the world for a life partner. 

You search far and wide, seeking with anticipation and a heart full of hope. You would not settle for the one on bargain though it's your perfect fit, because it hurts your toes. You realize you cannot bear to endure the pain it brings you in exchange for its cheap price. You won't let the perfect physical look deceive you.  

If it hurts, you let it go; no matter how good it looks or makes you look good.

If it won't allow you to go places and enjoy freedom, you leave it. Now, if it's too expensive, yet so comfy, you scrutinize every inch of it. You think hard. 

Is it really worth it? What if it will rob you of all that you have and leave you with nothing in the end? What if it just looks good, you grit your teeth and pay the price but later on find out it's not the perfect fit?

So you search, and search, and continue searching. You never get tired. You don't listen to those around you no matter how they try to dampen your spirit.

Every day your belief that finding the one that suits you best is almost within reach.

You continue to seek believing that you will find. Though you want to give up, you hold on to your goal.

You realize, there is joy in waiting, and there is so much to learn in the process.

You get to know yourself more; what you really want and what you will not compromise

So you carry on.  

The world is so big, and the choices are many. You know you will find it. 

Maybe it's in the next corner. You know it's just there with your name on it, waiting for you to claim it at the right time.
