Mindful Monday No. 6

These small, colorful, well-traveled, well-worn gems are beautiful examples of the transformation possible through Process.

The power of the ocean to take sharp pieces of glass and smooth them over time is not unlike how pearls develop from the constant irritation inside an oyster.

Refinement for Sea Glass takes time. Refinement for humans takes time. Discomfort, adversity, struggle, and being washed over and over again by the waves of life will smooth our rough edges, change our shape, and polish us until we shine.

We do not lose who we are in this process. We just lose what we don’t need. We just become a more refined version of ourselves.

May our process and procession through this life teach us patience, endurance, and reveal our true colors to ourselves and to the world.
