Whose shoes are you wearing?

“Apex Predator Shoes” by Mariana Fantich & Dominic Young.

They say walk a mile . . .

To understand

And it’s true

To gain insight or empathy

That’s what you should do

But to get to your dreams

 

Replace the snark

with sincerity

Stop apologizing

for who you are

and what you like

Own it, unabashedly

 

Don’t reduce

to “cheesy” or “campy”

embrace the heart, the joy — the fun

In a world full of WIIFM (What’s In It For Me?)

how about a little HCIH (How Can I Help?)

Make up your mind

then do it

 

You can always change it later

and make a new choice

Stop comparing, competing, and hiding

Start sharing.

Accept who you are now

and in the past

look forward to accepting the you

you’re creating for your future, too

 

Tie your laces,

fasten those buckles –

make sure the fit’s right

 

You’ve got a long way to walk

 

Make sure it’s in your own shoes.
