One of my luxuries, my splurges, is my UGG slippers.
I often work from home and we don’t wear shoes in our house, so I spend many of my days in slippers. A few years ago, I stumbled upon UGG slippers. I’ve never turned back. I don’t think I ever will.
I bought a new pair recently. I buy new slippers every few years, sometimes when I’ve put holes in the top of my old ones (from wearing them all the time), and sometimes before then. Each time I’m amazed at how wonderful the new slippers feel. My old slippers are great, but they get formed to fit me and the sheepskin gets a bit matted. When I slip on my new slippers, the sheepskin is so enveloping, and so decadent against my feet.
So I’ve been luxuriating in my new slippers, and I’ve realized that joy can be as simple as that – as simple as sheepskin slippers – if I’m paying attention to how good they feel.
There have been a few things I’m toughing through recently – a few challenges at work, a few challenges at home, a few challenges inside me. Nothing big and nothing bad, but still I’ve had thought paths that I could easily slip down, that would rob me of my ease and flow.
Instead I stop and feel my slippers – I mean, really feel my slippers – and everything seems quite doable and even wonderful again. It puts life into perspective. It puts me into perspective. It gives me physical pleasure, and even spiritual pleasure, in the moment.
It can be as simple as my mindfulness of the moment, and the slippers on my feet.
