Rejecting labels

Dear Max,

Labels have been created to describe various categories. And, so many people will follow life within these labels, fitting to an easily-defined mold. 

The people who are able to make real change in this world live outside of the norm. It’s a constant push. It is about active thought, instead of passive reading. It is about pursuing your personal goals while others are drinking, sleeping or watching TV. It is about learning in every moment, and taking the time to notice what is to be learned.

You can reject labels. You can create a better life for yourself at any moment. You can help others realize their potential too. All it takes is a little reminder that nobody else is the person you are. And, there will never be another you. Okay, Pal?

Love, 

Dad
