Thank God for my shoes-they fit. I woke up one day and I realized that there were many things about my life I was not satisfied with or better still, there were challenges that were threatening my soul. And I said to myself "Why should anyone envy me and wnat to be in my shoes." They don't know how far I've come, they don't know what lies ahead of me, and neigher do they know how dissatisfied I get with myself from time to time. People don't know the troulbes that you've had or the price you had to pay to get to where you are. All they want to know is that they wish they were like you. Why should you wish you were in anybody's shoes when you hardly know how they fit? When you've worn your shoes for a while, they take the shape of your feet and wear my shoes, you will not be comfortable in them. So I stopped wishing that I am in someone else shoes because it might not fit; rather I thank God for my shoes, because they fit! I have learnt to be the best in what I do, and I know no-one can replace me anywhere and in any sphere. I am an original, my God is not in the cloning business. He makes originals! Make the best of what you do; besides you have this beautiful life to live ONLY ONCE. Live it to the fullest.

Yeah...that's good and a nice self-nature-nurture learning. You got your right point there from your shoes you can relate it with your life's story. In this case, no one can be others and it just like our fingers, they don't share the same length. Only looks similar but still in different hand-side. We are ourselves.
