There is duality in every journey,
the messy parts, the beautiful parts,
just like making a jewellery piece.
The process matters just as much as the result.
These pieces embody both the process and result,
contrasting the maker's touch, the making process, the raw parts of a carving,
with the polished parts which indicate the result of the time and efforts put into refining.
Showing both sides of the journey,
to remind us, the process and the result
are both equally beautiful.
The rough parts of your journey
matters just as much as the polished parts.
Don't forget every mark you have left in your journey,
don't forget about the process that got you to where you are today.
Be humble, and remind yourself the journey that brought you here.
I hope that wherever you are,
you will always remember
where you started,
how you started,
why you started,
this journey of yours.
I am proud of you.
