So I was sitting at work today, caught a glimpse of my socks, and thought of a new blog post. Fascinating hey?
Before you shake your head in confusion, then hastily click on the next article in your blog reader, let me explain how my socks brought to light observations that fit snugly inside my live simple philosophy.
Most people wear socks that are as plain as day, myself usually included. Boring black or navy socks, which to be fair are often devoured by shoes or hidden by pants, but either way we don’t give them a second thought.
Well, last week I did give them a second thought. I bought a few packs of socks and found different colours/patterns and decided they were perfect for my humble office at work. The sock will mostly covered by my business pants, but every now and then they’ll peek out.
But more importantly, I’ll see them, and I’ll know I have them on. So why does it matter?
Today I had a bit of fun and wanted to show off my socks to a few people at work. I was shocked at how many were surprised when they saw my socks. It’s taken me barely a few days to work out that in a society that can at times become really serious and stiff, wearing a fun pair of socks is a really simple of way of brightening the mood.
The moral of this isn’t so much about the socks, but what they represent. So in an effort to fill my life with easy peasy methods of enjoying myself and having fun, wearing a pair of fun socks has now officially been added to the list, and I will endeavour to do it daily. My bland, black socks are on their last legs!
If nothing else, my fun new socks give me a chuckle every time I put them on before leaving for work, and that’s worth a lot isn’t it?
