Neli was twelve years old when she saw an orange pair of shoes with a beautiful orange flower on it in a store display. Neli stared at the orange shoes and imagined how the shoes would look great with an orange flower skirt, and she would dance with them and gaze lovely.
Neli asked her mother to buy the orange shoes for her. When her mother saw the shoes, she said: “These shoes look ridiculous. Where can you ever wear them?”
Neli’s mother bought a pair of brown shoes for her that day.
When Neli was 18, she was walking with her fiancé and saw a pair of orange shoes with beautiful heels. She wanted to buy the shoes, and her fiancé said: “If you purchase black shoes, you can wear them with many different outfits.”
Neli didn’t argue that day to buy the orange shoes.
Twenty-seven years passed, and Neil’s son got married, and one day she was walking with her husband and saw other beautiful orange shoes again.
Neli insisted on buying the shoes, and her husband said: “What would our daughter in law think of you. You are a forty-five-year-old woman, and you need to act like your age.”
When Neli became a grandmother for the first time, she started to buy orange shoes for her granddaughter’s birthdays every year. The orange shoes became a traditional gift, and she always said: “I buy orange shoes for my granddaughter because it brings good luck.”
On Neli’s seventieth birthday, her son bought her a pair of orange shoes and said: “An orange shoes to bring good luck for a beautiful kind mother.”
Neli burst into tears out of happiness. She finally had a pair of orange shoes. At the age of seventy, she felt like a twelve-year-old and danced and felt good that day. The next day she went to buy an orange skirt to match the shoes.
Starting today, buy the “orange shoes” of your life. It is your life; make your innocent dreams come through.
