How To Make A Diamond or When Life Feels Too Hard...

Life is hard from the moment you are born and for some people life was even hard inside the womb. Life doesn't let up on us either. You deal with maybe an unkind sibling that tries to take you out before you even walk. Then learning to walk is filled with falling down and getting hurt, and so goes life. But before you think I'm just going to swirl you into negative-ville, I'm not, well, not before a few other relatable reminders of possible hardships.
Things you may be having a hard time with:
Being Overwhelmed
Sickness or Health
Family Illness
Feeling Hopeless
And I could keep writing, but I'm sure there were at least one or two things we can all relate to there.

Now let's pause and learn...
Scientists have guessed that the recipe to form a diamond, might go as follows:
Bury Carbon Dioxide about 100 feet below the Earth's surface.
Heat your oven up to 725 to 2,200 degrees fahrenheit depending on how you like your diamonds
Place under 434,113 to 725,000 pounds of pressure per square inch.
Quickly race to cool at the surface of the Earth.
Boom. Diamonds from the Oven.

Carbon is transformed, not from a perfect life protecting it's precious carbon-ness, but by heat and pressure, and lots of it. Not just a little warmth and a little uncomfy squishing, but extraordinary heat and tremendous pressure.
Some days we feel like we can't go on, some days we feel like there's too much pressure on us from things in life or people. But I want you to know that life is making you into a beautiful diamond, some awful people we encounter are making us sparkle more by learning to deal with them and all their awful ways they might treat us and hurt us. The fire and heat of some situations are making us shine, because we got through it. And when you do so without letting yourself become bitter and angry, that's when you shine, baby shine!

I doesn't matter if relationships, money, job, people at school or work or even your family are bringing the pressure or bringing the heat....
you know that you are becoming a sparkly diamond. And don't you worry say, but I can't handle anymore. It's the enduring of the challenges, it's the overcoming, it's the surviving with a smile, it's the strength that comes from still loving and caring about others while you walk through hardships that add to your priceless shine!
You are not just charcoal that handled stress well...you are a precious human being that is handling all the troubles that life dishes out to us incredibly well. It's the hard times in my life that have broken my heart to just the right place that my heart can comfort others who've been through what I have and it's grown my heart o have so much understanding of other people's hurting and pain. This world needs more people that have understanding and that care and help lift others up when they are going through a hard time. Let's all look for the pressure that others are under and since we are more than carbon, we have precious souls and hearts, and we can use the love and encouragement from others when we go through hard times to help bring that diamond sparkly to their eyes and smile.

Go out all you precious diamonds and shine through all your pressure, grow even sparklier through each hard moment and person you encounter and know I'm proud of you for all the pressure and stress and hardships you've been through to become even sparklier and priceless!
