A man who views the world the same at fifty as he did at twenty has wasted thirty years of his life. Muhammad Ali
As we go through life, we may find ourselves so tied to and tied up in the mindset of the past we cannot enjoy and appreciate the present.
When we are reluctant to leave our comfort zone, we deny our mind and spirit opportunity for needed growth and development.
Sometimes taking baby steps to move past our fears and prejudices can enlighten, enable, and empower us.
This is not to say that we should bow to pressures of peers, society, or the media, or latch on to every fad or trend. Once we have broken these self-imposed bonds and stepped outside the box, we can be who and what we truly are and what we may wish to become.
