The fire creates diamonds

You told me you’re struggling and I think it’s beautiful. It means that between giving up and fighting, you choose to fight, and so there’s a struggle.The process will not be easy. The work will always be messy. But all beautiful things come from mess, from sweat, from blood, from fire, from things that aren’t pretty. Think of that cross where Love is nailed, that crown made of thorns, or the sweat of our mother’s chest as she pushed to get us here. The work is never pretty, the fire is always painful. But it’s the only way diamonds are created. And dear, if you think you aren’t a diamond yet, then you are a diamond in the making. But I believe we are born as shining diamonds… Sometimes, we just need the purifying fire to polish our luster.

Keep on shining diamonds!
