Designed by Emily Dunbar for Project OHMistry.
DON'T GIVE UP, you tell yourself. You feel it in your heart and soul. You are meant to succeed.
It starts with those first few steps. But with all journeys, it is a struggle of faith and self-assurance. Fear finds its way to creep in. It twists your path, voices harsh judgment, creates doubt and pain. It tries to seize the victory that awaits you.
At your darkest moment, when all feels lost, this bead reminds you to keep going. Push upwards, onwards! Faith is being sure of what you hope for and certain of what you do not see.
Having faith will guide your journey, through the darkness. The clouds will open, the path will brighten and the further you go, the clearer your path becomes. You will find unexpected help. You will experience achievements, big and small. Before you know it, you will arrive at the end and the start of a new beginning.
You will be victorious. Every fear, doubt, and painful memory will be conquered.
Emily Dunbar, known as "fashionstoryteller" on Instagram and Youtube, has a background in Fashion Design and has always loved to tell stories through clothing and other creative outlets. It is no wonder that she fell in love with charm bracelets, with each bracelet (and bead) telling a unique story. She shares these stories on her blog and social media platforms.
Though Emily loves to focus on the positives of life, she has gone through her own journeys up challenging mountains. This bead was inspired by those journeys and the importance of faith. Emily hopes the story and message behind this bead will remind others to never give up. At the darkest moment, when all feels lost, she hopes this bead will remind others to keep going.
