Given to me when I was young.
Worn by my mom when she was my age.
I treasured it.
I held it. I wore it. I hid it.
I always loved it.
It inspired me.
The people throw rocks necklace? That continued from this.
I had made a different version a long time ago- no basket- a rock bound up- the back stating the same thing. When I sold it, I knew the owner needed it.
Its good to wear reminders.
It's good to know what we know. It's important to remember that what the world sees sometimes is no where near the truth.
We are lock boxes of our own lives.
So keep living.
The strongest do not look back.
They do not worry.
They know in their heart.
And that is all that matters.
Let the world talk.
You've got everything you need.
