Ladies, watch your heels!

NYTimes: Some women love their shoes so much it hurts. Researchers have found that smart shoe choices pay off in the long term: women who had mainly worn supportive footwear like sneakers or athletic shoes in their younger years cut their risk of common foot pain later in life by more than half, compared with women who had worn shoes that gave average support, like high heels hard-soled or rubber-soled ones.

This post reminded me of:
Teebster's wicked witch walay black boots;

Monay's soft and cute ballerina shoes;

B's pamela anderson type shoes she likes

and SAK's long boots (heels walee -the ones she wore at lakeview :))

It takes a moment to break but an entire lifetime to make

This is a true story that happened in Japan.

In order to renovate the house, someone in Japan breaks open the wall. Japanese houses normally have a hollow space between the wooden walls. When tearing down the walls, he found that there was a lizard stuck there because a nail from outside hammered into one of its feet.
He sees this, feels pity, and at the same time curious, as when he checked the nail, it was nailed 5 years ago when the house was first built !!!

What happened?

The lizard has survived in such position for 5 years!!!!!!!!!!

In a dark wall partition for 5 years without moving, it is impossible and mind-boggling.

Then he wondered how this lizard survived for 5 years! without moving a single step--since its foot was nailed! So he stopped his work and observed the lizard, what it has been doing, and what and how it has been eating. Later, not knowing from where it came, appears another lizard, with food in its mouth.

Ah! He was stunned and touched deeply. For the lizard that was stuck by nail, another lizard has been feeding it for the past 5 years. Imagine? it has been doing that untiringly for 5 long years, without giving up hope on its partner. Imagine what a small creature can do that a creature blessed with a brilliant mind can't.

Please never abandon your loved ones. Never say you are busy when they really need you . You may have the entire world at your feet, but you might be the only world to them. A moment of negligence might break the very heart which loves you through all odds. Before you say something just remember, it takes a moment to break but an entire lifetime to make.
