Pressure = DIAMOND?

February 28, 2010 7:23pm CST
Did you know that CHARCOAL and DIAMONDS are actually made of the same element - carbon? So, what turn worthless carbon into diamonds? Pressure. The same applies with us; we are all humans, yet only a few people stand out. And what makes them stand out? Pressure. So, be thankful when you're pressed on every side. Pressures are meant to turn you into a sparkling diamond.!

Thanx, but today i feel like that piece of charcoal. Not worth pressing and very hard and cold.

I love this one, my friend! Who would we be if it weren't for tough times in our lives? I would hate to see what kind of spineless person I would be without some of the trials I have had in my past. Hard situations force us to act, which builds our character. You know what they say, what doesn't kill you only makes you stronger - LOL. Another excellent discussion. Thanks!
