I like it and it has a lot of truth to it

I kind of laughed when I read the first sentence.

An image of those t-shirts that say 'Life is good" popped into my head only with the phrase "Life is a grindstone" on it and little broken stick figures with x's for eyes littering the front.

Oh dear, I want to start today with the belief and intent that my life, despite whatever difficulties or hardships I face, is a little better than a grindstone!

The quote is similar to "The Same Sun that Melts Wax, Hardens Clay" which I have always liked a lot!!

Wax or clay or diamonds - let's all bask in the sun today for just a little while...summer will be over soon!

I think we always were diamonds, we just forgot it for awhile for some of us??? Some of us may have been told (over and over) how un-diamond like we were-but, people were wrong!

I love that idea.... instead of feeling ground down, recognize the polishing that is happening when we are challenged by life.

Lost 65 lbs and maintained since 2006.

We must all be diamonds by now! Keep Sparking!
