I am Heather Suzanne Moss. I am a woman. I am a mother. I am a wife. I am a daughter. I am a sister. I am a friend. I am a Christ-follower. I am an advocate. I am a mentor. I am a volunteer. I am white. I am brunette. I am Italian. I am Native American. I am Jewish. I am German. I am a Democrat. I am a feminist. I am a voter. I am a US citizen. I am an English speaker. I am a Californian, Hoosier and North Carolinian. I am a college graduate. I am a cook. I am reader. I am a foodie. I am a singer (ok, a really bad singer). I am a volunteer. I am a teacher. I am writer. I am a boxer. I am a walker. I am an artist. I am a traveler. I am a crime victim. I am a survivor. I am a hostess. I am a mixologist. I am a theater goer. I am a wine lover. I am a dreamer. I am a dog lover. I am an enthusiast. I am an encourager. I am a poet. I am a fashionista. I am an optimist. I am a lover of nature. I am more than any one label you can put on me. We are probably more similar than different. It’s easy to label people and see them in terms of a single label but each person has many labels. Each person is made up of hundreds of labels. And when you put all those labels together what you come up with is a beautiful, unique individual. I wish we could all see people in their entirety, in their wholeness. Instead we take a small part of them and label them, and judge them by that label, and miss the beauty of who they are because all we can see is a label. Wouldn’t the world be a better place if we could see beyond the labels and realize how much we have in common.

Look deeper.
Heather
