Picture this: you are in an interview or training and you are asked the following question:
If you were an animal, what would you be?
This is me as an animal:
I am a zebra. I am different from other animals. I look tame, but I can’t be domesticated. Sometimes my stripes help me stand out, other times they help me blend in. However, I need to be surrounded by others to thrive. I am nurturing, protective and sensitive.
My stripes are unique: they make me recognizable and confirm my uniqueness. They also a reminder of all the “scratches” life gave me. They are also beautiful particularities that protected me from life’s dangers.
My stripes are magnificent and I embrace them. I am a zebra.
I encourage you to reflect on your own ‘animal’. You might be surprised to learn what it could reveal to you.
