How To Make A Diamond or When Life Feels Too Hard...
Things you may be having a hard time with:
Sickness or Health
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...
HOW TO MAKE A DIAMOND
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!
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!
Giant hugs, your friend, Kandee
