#NaBloPoMo: Describe an outfit that makes you feel good.
Bette Middler said it best, “Give a girl the correct footwear and she can conquer the world.”
My Superwoman shoe is a vintage set of white and teal colored Nike Air Icarus. It was given to me as a gift from my grandfather in 1993. They were my very first pair of running shoes and sadly, my only possession kept from the days when my Lolo (grandfather) and I ran every weekend at Ypao Beach, Guam.
It was during those morning runs with Lolo that he shared his wisdom and valuable life lessons.
Now 20 years old, worn and held together with Shoe Goo, my Nikes are tucked in a special place in my closet. And on days when I am hit with waves of nostalgia and self-doubt, longing for comfort and advice from my Lolo, I put on my Nikes, stand in front of the mirror and say to myself: “You are enough.”
