bracelet, forgot meaning, made new one

A couple of years ago I bought a few of those grass based braided bracelets with a few colored glass beads braided in. Each color meant something different, usually something with healing or self finding. You tie it on so that it cannot come off and you wear it until it falls off. When it falls off you're supposed to be calmer or whatever it meant. I found one today and tied it on and made up a new meaning for it. Be true to myself. It seems these days I've thrown my values away whenever and haven't defended myself when others question when I do the right thing
