If the Shoe Fits, Go Barefoot, is an inspirational self-help book by Filmmaker, Author, and Speaker Sofia Wellman. Sofia shows you how to magnify the light of your inner authority by helping you understand who you are. Knowing ourselves is the only path to reach our potential as human beings; otherwise our purpose here remains untapped. Life is a series of passages. The most pronounced are birth and death. Birth is the passage from Spirit into form, and death is the passage from form back to Spirit. More significant than those passages is when we are in form and connect with our Spirit. Just like birth and death, it is a passage that must be taken alone. When we understand who we are, what we think we want suddenly becomes insignificant.

Question: “How long did it take you to Write If the Shoe Fits, Go Barefoot?”


A friend who is a published author shared a quote with me that said, “Books are not written; they are rewritten.” I was grateful for those words while writing If the Shoe Fits, Go Barefoot. I officially started the book in 2006 and completed it in 2012. I rewrote it six times, although unconsciously, I have been writing If the Shoe Fits, Go Barefoot my whole life.

When I was younger, I analyzed every experience as if there were an irrefutable understanding that I could carry forward, so that I didn’t repeat my mistakes. Intellectualizing life gave me a false sense of control. It worked well when dealing with facts, but was ineffective for living life. After a lot of heartache and hardship, I realized the answers for my life were not outside me, but inside me. While I tried to prevent my painful lessons, they multiplied, because my approach was based on the past, which rarely had anything to do with who I was in the present. Insight seldom occurs when forced.

If the Shoe Fits, Go Barefoot does not challenge who you have become, because awareness of our foibles alone does not create the space for us to be more than our shortcomings. It invites you to know yourself. It is not a book for the timid—self-acceptance is risky. When we uncover our true potential, who we thought we were and who we are may not be the same, and we must change.

When we express ourselves for the purpose of helping others, we tap into a deeper level of consciousness, from where we also help ourselves. I still learn something about myself every time I read the book I have written, because each time I read If the Shoe Fits, Go Barefoot, I am different.


Question and Challenge Everything! Read This Book!

"Sofia's book gave me RESOLUTION! I love how it's written it writes like you are sitting down talking to your best friend. I came across this book when I was going through a tough time in my life I had a lot of questions about life and why why why. Sofia tells us that we are not the only ones that feel this way and have these questions. Growing up attending catholic school in Brooklyn I understood a lot about where she was coming from (she too attended Catholic school) The title is rebellious which caught my attention suggesting a fighter wrote it! It helps you in your journey to gaining the strength to jump those hurdles in life. I had the pleasure of meeting Sofia recently and she is a strong soul with an inner peace and after reading her book you will know why! Read It!

"The book relates to how a person and in this case a very successful women, overcame severe reversal's of her personal life and changed the course to one of reaching out and helping others.. I learned from reading the many options of faith in one's self and abilities from spiritual, medical and just belief in yourself.. For couples that have to deal with the many ups and downs of life..it brings understanding.. that being said..the book i is well written.. and compelling...A very first rate gift for a friend..that in confidence mentions that their life at this point it upside down.. or for yourself to understand life...

Refreshing Coming of Age and then some!

"I saw a documentary film directed by this author and was intrigued to read her book, because I loved the film. The book is a great read. It was very inspiring and applicable to my life, not some woo-woo, out there, ideals that aren't realistic to living. I think I have underlined something on every page. It is definitely on my Christmas gift giving list.

Open minded brilliance.

"In If the Shoe Fits, Go Barefoot Sofia A. Wellman does a nice job explaining complex concepts in ways that are understandable. She takes you on a journey, which includes her own journey, to find meaning and fulfillment in life. Moving from the outer world to the inner world Sofia encourages you to explore your most important relationship – the one with yourself! The first time I read this book I learned the information. While reading the book a second time I was able to go to a deeper level with the material, but most importantly to a deeper knowing of myself. I can’t wait to see what happens the third time I read it! It is truly a book that with every reading the value gained increases. If the Shoe Fits, Go Barefoot showed up in my life with perfect timing, and I am grateful for that!
