Rough diamonds may sometimes be mistaken for worthless pebbles. – Thomas Browne
I sure felt a little better after reading this one.
It’s easy to get caught up in all of our imperfections and get a little discouraged.
But every single person is a rough diamond.
We all have some areas for improvement, but underneath it all is greatness.
Our own, unique greatness.
Don’t mistake yourself for a worthless pebble.
Don’t buy into the ideas that if you could only lose some weight or buy that thing or take that trip that you would then become worthy or “as much as” someone else or some idealized version of yourself.
Don’t fall into the social media trap of viewing everyone’s highlight reel thinking you are “less than”.
It’s not true! You are a diamond.
Make it a great day.
