#100HappyDays: Day 20
Being Barefoot

Something I always say is "The world is a better place without shoes," and I stand by that. In fact, the first thing I do when I get home for the day is peel of my shoes. My feet rejoice in happiness and basque in their freedom for the rest of the day until I have to tragically shoehorn them into another pair in the morning.

When I lived in New York, I would frequently go walking around the city and Central Park with no shoes on, and, while some might view that as absolutely disgusting, I view those as the times when I was most happy. Homeless man pee can always be washed off at the end of the day, and as long as I paid attention to where I was stepping - a skill that one must have while living in New York - I was fine. No harm, no foul.

I don't know what it is about being barefoot. You just feel more connected, more free, untethered to societal norms.
