I have been following this blog for a while and I have to say that these words resonated deeply within. Simple yet poignant!
“I don’t care what people call me, labels have the negative value of making smaller boundaries for people.” ~ Michael Graces. Labels limit us in so many ways. They limit our self-esteem, our success, our self-confidence, and make us feel smaller. Steve Maraboli says, “Sometimes letting go is simply changing the labels you place on an event. Looking at the same event with fresh eyes.”

Oh no, if I cannot answer this question, how on earth am I going to be able to concentrate tomorrow? I am going to lose sleep tonight as I stay up to ponder this question. I need to know, I HAVE to know – am I white with black stripes or black with white stripes? I MUST be able to define who I am!!!” A wiser, older Zebra soon approached him and said, “It is quite simple, in a short time you will be neither black with white stripes or white with black stripes – you will be the Lion’s lunch if you continue with this nonsense!”
