Precious metals and jewels are generally not found on the surface. There is a lot of digging and excavation that has to happen to get to them. Then, there is additional shaving and cleaning and sifting that happens to finally get to a clear piece of material. It can be exhausting and excruciating but rewarding in the end.
When we become angry or lose hope or feel like we’re never going to be happy, we have to remember that we, too, have precious things on the inside. Somewhere, deep down in our soul, there are things we know are the most important to us, things we want to do, and the types of people we want to be around.
Maybe we’ve just settled over the years into what has become comfortable and those feelings have been buried.
We have to have the courage to dig down deep and unearth these feelings and expose who we really are.
They might end up becoming the jewels that bring us the rich life of happiness we’ve always been searching for.
