Diamonds sparkle but you can never find a penny when you need one. At least that is the case for me. We all need reminders. We set them on our phone. We use post it notes and write a to do list that never ends.
There are times when you need reminders of what you need to do in your life. Then there are times when you need to remind people who you are.
We have all been taken for granted by someone we love or trusted. We are caught off guard. How we respond is important. Last week I had to remind someone of what they had. What they lost.
I was a diamond but he was more concerned with picking up pennies at the time. If you are going to pick up pennies. At least pick up pennies that shine and don’t look dirty and dull. Just saying.
He couldn’t see the brightness and power of my diamond because I kept it hidden for moments like this. How quickly people realize their mistakes.
The beauty of being a diamond is that most people will see your qualities before you even speak. Those are your people. Life has humbled me, taught me my worth and made me love myself for who I am.
Don’t get me wrong. Pennies are good. But it takes 100 pennies to make a dollar.
