Remind Yourself:


Your body is made of the same elements that Lions are built from. Three quarters of you is the same water that beats rocks to rubble, wears stones away. Your DNA translates into the same twenty amino acids that Wolf genetics carry. When you look in the mirror and feel weak, remember: the air you breathe fuels forest fires capable of destroying everything you touch. On the days you feel ugly, remember: diamonds are only carbon,

and remind yourself: You are so much more.

    A fine write N. Someone said similar: "a diamond is only a piece of coal that been around a long time, and been polished up"! Or something like that! lol.

      Thank you! And I totally agree, diamonds are nice to look at but, there are more important things
