Facets – Making Life Sparkle

Facets make life sparkle
A diamond sparkles because of its facets.

Facets make life sparkle. When we simplify our world by breaking it down into just black and white, aren’t we missing all the other colors? What we gain in simplicity, we lose in vibrance, textures, and richness.

Election times can be frustrating. Pick your side. It’s us against them. The right versus the left. Either good or bad. Right or wrong. The red apple or the green apple.

Think of a gemstone; its facets make it stunning. The concept of ‘windows and mirrors’ situated at many various planes reflect the available light in every direction, and create a beautiful sparkle. If the stone was only cut into two sides, it wouldn’t be as complicated, and it wouldn’t be as brilliant.

By allowing yourself to see the facets instead of merely the sides, you gain a deeper understanding of the world around you. Here are some ideas:

  • Look for the bad in the good, and the good in the bad
  • Instead of agreeing or disagreeing in an argument, search for middle ground and options
  • Contemplate your quick decisions for a minute
  • Notice how many shades of purple you see today
  • Enjoy the flavors in a golden delicious apple!

You might find that there is a beautiful charcoal gray that is just right for you. Because facets make life sparkle.
