Long ago, in ancient Rome, the philosopher, and playwright Seneca the Younger wisely observed, "Many things have fallen only to rise higher." Centuries later, England's legendary prime minister Winston Churchill used a childhood toy as an example when he said, "Kites rise highest against the wind not with it."
How many times have you too fallen or been seriously setback, only to rise higher than before? How many times have you discovered that the more you pushed and persevered against difficulties, the more you rose above the challenge, just like that kite soaring higher and higher into the wind?
So we at OHM created a beautiful glass bead to celebrate this concept in RISE HIGHER. Against a background of vibrant, glorious blue, we set a dash of aspiring white. Is it a bird taking wing against the invisible resistance of a brisk summer breeze? Or, is it a snowy mountain peak rising high into the frosty firmament?
Either way, this brilliant blue bead will add depth and nuance to your bracelet and give your imagination flight as you contemplate this inspiring concept of RISE HIGHER. As good ol' Seneca also said, "It is the power of the mind to be unconquerable." Soar, my friend. The sky is the limit!
