Hey Magical One!
Last week when I bought my MINI Cooper, the dealership gave us a couple of thank you gifts. One of them being a t-shirt for both Lee and I that has the MINI Cooper logo on the front and a cool quote on the back.
It says: “Those who defy labels, define themselves.”
Let’s talk about this quote.
Back in 2008, I read my second new age type book. It was “A New Earth” by Eckhart Tolle.
This is an incredibly powerful book and changed the way I show up in the world – especially for my clients.
It taught me what being present really means and how to do it.
One of the examples he used was with a tree. If you sit and admire the tree without adding labels to it, without naming it, just sit there and see it’s beauty for what it is, you become present with the tree.
Once you allow your mind to start labeling it or even its parts (bark, leaf, branch), the brain instantly moves on to something else and the tree starts to lose it’s magical wonder.
By allowing yourself to remove the labels of the tree and ultimately from yourself, the child-like wonder of the world will start to shine through and you can see things for what they truly are.
You can begin to define yourself without labels and appreciate the miracle that is you.
Go ahead, give it a try. Defy some labels today.
When you discover how wonderful you are, capture it in a quote and send it over.
Showering you with braindrops and glitter.
