I couldn’t believe my eyes! A zebra with polka dots?! It was too cool! I couldn’t help but laugh from excitement. I’m not sure why things like this make me so happy, but they do. Maybe it’s because they’re something new, something I’ve never seen before. It was a beautiful, funny, elegant, glorious sight. Too good to be true!
As I looked at the pictures of the polka-dotted zebra, something funny came to mind. Picture this: a herd of zebras strutting their stuff in the savanna, each one flaunting its stripes and thinking it’s the coolest thing. Suddenly, a zebra with polka dots shows up. The striped zebras point and laugh, but little do they know, the polka-dotted zebra is feeling fabulous!
You see, my friends, it’s all about perspective. You might feel like a polka-dotted zebra in a world of stripes, but that doesn’t mean you should feel down about yourself. Embrace your unique qualities! Embrace your dots, and you’ll see those other zebras will get right along with you. You don’t need anyone’s approval, validation, or confirmation to be your true authentic self.
Sure, there will be times when you feel like a penguin in a room full of flamingos. They’re tall, graceful, and pink, while you’re waddling around in your black and white tuxedo. But don’t let that get you down. Penguins are the ones who can dive deep and swim with incredible speed. Flamingos? Not so much.
The Polka-Dotted Zebra
In the vast African savanna,
a zebra with polka dots roamed free,
unaware of how unique and special she was,
she lived her life carefree.
She grazed on the grasslands,
played with her zebra friends,
And as she ran through the fields,
her polka dots swirled and danced with the wind.
She never worried about standing out,
or blending in,
because in the animal kingdom,
it is all about just being.
As the sun set and the stars came out,
she rested her tired feet,
feeling content and happy,
whole and complete.
And as she closed her eyes,
her polka dots shone in the moonlight;
A beautiful sight, that filled the night,
and that’s all,
nothing to learn,
just be who you are,
accept and behold.
In your uniqueness lies your strength,
your power to shine bright,
to make a difference,
so go out into the world
with your head held high
and let your true colors shine,
just like zebra’s polka dots
in the night sky.

And you know the point is you’re amazing just the way you are. You don’t need anyone else’s ideas or measuring sticks to evaluate you. So what if someone thinks you’re a clumsy giraffe? You’re a giraffe that can reach the highest, freshest leaves while they’re stuck munching on the ground! Let them munch. It’s not that you are worse or better than they are; you just are. You’re tall, beautiful, and can see so far, and don’t get me started on those glorious eyelashes!
So, my friends, instead of measuring up, change your perspective. Look at yourself through the eyes of those who see your innate greatness. I do.
Now, go out there and show the world your incredible polka dots!
Be Alive 🌱
