What if Cinderella had retrieved her glass slipper?

Had Cinderella gone back for her shoe, she would have had two shoes, but she wouldn’t have become a princess.
How often you find yourself going back and trying to do things that you haven’t been able to do since you became chronically ill only to discover that nothing had changed, that it was still too difficult to do? I am not saying that desiring to do some of those activities is altogether terrible, but have you considered that there may be a whole new set of activities waiting to be discovered?
It’s not like Cinderella never wore two shoes again, she just wore different shoes.
You can spend your life constantly looking backwards in search of lost shoes or you can accept your loss and slip your foot into a new pair. A new pair of shoes may not be the same as your old ones, they may feel restrictive at first or a little wobbly, but as long as you don’t toss them in the back of your closet they will lead you on great adventures!
