A single focus

There’s an old story about how the Zebra got his stripes. A horse discovered a magic cave which gave whoever entered whatever they asked for. “I wish I was jet black”, the horse whispered and hey presto he was as black as the night. But when he got outside, he wondered if maybe white was a better colour. So back into the cave he went, “I wish I was white”, and he was white and gleaming. But when he got outside, he thought that white wasn’t a very practical colour. Black would be better, so black he became. But then no, white was so regal. So, on and on it went black, white, black then white. Until suddenly there was a rumbling sound, and the cave began to collapse. The horse raced outside with the words, white, black ringing in its ears.  And then to its dismay, it discovered that it was indeed white and black.

Sometimes we can end up becoming doubled minded. We want to be one thing but then we also want to be something else. And we end up caught in a place where we are never satisfied with our decisions. Live your life without worrying about what others will think of you.
