YOU are a Polished Jewel
You have been tumbled into a gem, which has created your brilliance and shine. From youth to old age, circumstances have brought out the characteristics that weren’t initially obvious. Now, you MUST treat yourself as a jewel and expose your beauty.
Think of Gems as Gifts
Gems are multi-faceted and precious. They are admired for their beauty and have been given as gifts since the beginning of time. YOU are a gem, so how can YOU share yourself as a GIFT?
It’s the GIVING of self that will remind you of your inner beauty and clarity.
Have You been Feeling Soft?
REMEMBER: Softer gems can be scratched when kept in the same bag as the harder ones. All gems are unique and you can’t expect them to have the same degree of hardness. Diamonds and pearls are both treasured stones. Nonetheless, if these two stones are rubbed against each other, the pearl may become damaged.
YOU may need to separate yourself from the harder stones to bring your inherent beauty and luster back and gently rub away at the marks that were left. Some will only be scuffs. Once you are mindfully caring for this gem, you may be surprised at the renewed shine!
