Bounded 3 inch golden lotus feet.
Would you believe that mothers used to bind feet of their daughters during the Qing dynasty so they will be of marriageable quality?
This pair of decorative shoes was gifted to me by my mom. But a hundred years ago in China, they were functional.
As I reflected on how older women used to bind the feet of younger women, a thought crossed my mind.
How are we binding the feet of the younger generation? With fear, doubt, negativity?
While our feet are no longer bound. Our hearts and minds are still bound.
Time to be free from this bondage.
Time to forgive the older women who did not know better.
Happiness is having big feet and shoes of peace to explore.
