Speaking of labels, crazy is one I’ve worn (somewhat proudly) most of my life. I am now on a mission to eliminate it from my vocabulary.

More specifically, I want to disassociate that label from my persona.

I have much better descriptors I’d rather use; like brilliant, transformed, empathetic, passionate, enthusiastic, devoted, inspired, motivated, encouraged, shiny, talented, and badass!

What labels do you choose for yourself over “crazy?”
