I am typically the problem. I admit it. If I think or pray about a situation, often I discover that not only am I the problem, but I can also be the solution.
In this scenario, I’m talking about shoes. These shoes.
They’re called Yoga Sandals. This summer, my feet began to ache. I was a little worried since the pain was coinciding with my decision to begin running again. I’m relieved that running isn’t uncomfortable, not does it seem to be aggravating my foot pain.
Just before my feet starting giving me fits, I came across these shoes. I had just learned about a friend who was struggling with foot problems. I sent her the link. The reviews, including testimonies from foot specialists, were great. I figured…it might help her.
I hemmed and hawed about ordering them for myself for far too long. I finally decided to give them a try. (This is an entirely different problem I have, in that I think about things far too long. Impulsivity is not my issue!)
It’s been about 10 days. Initially, I could only wear them for about 15 minutes. They hurt my toes. It made my feet simultaneously ache and feel relief.
The other day, I was able to wear them for several hours, and that next day my feet felt better than they have in a long time.
My husband asked how they were going, and I told him I wasn’t sure. “I’d like to recommend them, but I am not convinced yet that it’s going to heal my foot issues.”
A few hours later it was like I had been smacked in the head with a pile of bricks.
If you love a movie or love a restaurant or a book, it is quite natural to share. But I easily sent the link to a friend when I had seen the reviews and told her, “Hey, this might work for you.”
Someone who cares, shares. It’s that simple. Just because something didn’t work for me, doesn’t mean it won’t work for you. And if it’s not unhealthy and the company is reputable and the reviews are fabulous, why wouldn’t I share? It’s a bit egotistical to think a product only needs to work for me for it to be worthwhile!
This is a repeat performance for me. When I began Isagenix, I didn’t even want anyone to know I was doing it. Then I didn’t want to share it, even after a life changing experience.
I have been coaching people on Isagenix for nearly three years. I’ve had some quitters, but most of them didn’t give the tools or themselves a chance. I had some who abused it as a diet and had diet-like results. But everyone who enrolled, was coachable, and used it to the best of their ability has been pleased.
But here’s the gem. Some of those who quit, abused it or never even tried it have referred people to me. Why? Because it obviously works — if not for everyone, then definitely for some people.
When you know someone is hurting or looking for a solution and you care about them, you share. The tools that I’m emotionally connected to, like Isagenix and Holy Yoga, I get FIRED UP about sharing. But they aren’t the only things I share.
So here I am, still a little uncertain. But I’ve seen the testimonies. These shoes have helped not only those with feet problems but even those with knee, hip and low back issues. If you’re looking for solutions, you might consider giving this one a try!
