A healthy lifestyle is like a diamond......

Sunday, July 29, 2012

In the beginning - a lump of coal, dark, considered ugly, perhaps passed-by by many, but with great potential. There is a fire inside that makes it precious.

As the journey moves forward - a diamond in the rough, the potential it's had all along is finally being seen by others. It has faced the fire and emerged as something more, something new and bright. It's destined to become something greater, to continue it's journey to be the best it can be.

The completion of it's journey - a diamond is cut and polished to bring forth it's full potential, some round, some oval, some square.....but they all have one thing in common, they have all reached their full potential and will be cherished for what they are.......a lump of coal that finished it's journey, proving to everyone there was always something precious within.

The future - The setting, whether you stand alone or surround yourself with other precious gems, keep in mind the setting determines whether or not your full potential continues to shine.

Nurture your fire within, reach your full potential and show yourself and everyone else just how great you have been all along. Know that you have the power to shine for a lifetime.

    It isn't what you have, or who you are, or where you are, or what you are doing that makes you happy or unhappy. It is what you think about.
