of the important steps to achieving a fulfilling, more
rewarding life is to realize the ramifications of this
simple observation: A PEARL is the only natural gemstone
that can be made in a human lifetime. A tiny grain of sand
or piece of dirt gets inside the shell of an oyster. That
creature’s way of dealing with an irritation is to coat it
over, over and over, until it becomes a smooth thing of deep
beauty, the pearl.
Much like the oyster, we too must manage life’s irritants, those things that get into our shell. And, like the oyster, we have to work at dealing with those irritants, learn to cope, to smooth and round, polish, maybe even enjoy, so that eventually, they become us and we become them.
All that we are as a person is a collection of those “pearls”, how we’ve dealt with the problems in our life, how we look at them now, the opportunities we’ve taken to build things of beauty out of what at first seemed like adversities.
And unlike any
other generation in our history, we refuse to accept the
definition of "graying" as an acceptance of inability to
achieve our continuing goals. We are the
generation that expects and demands more. We are not
graying, we are going platinum!
