“A diamond is merely a lump of coal that did well under pressure.” Henry Kissinger

Sometimes life can be a real mother fucker. And I don’t even mean that to be a pessimistic statement….it’s just true. Bad shit happens to good people. The world is riddled with inexplicable hatred, and more grief and injustice than I will ever comprehend. But we persevere, because…is there another option?

Instead of cracking under pressure, I’m going to try and keep searching for that small, shiny light that has to exist somewhere – even if all think you see is pitch black darkness. Finding that glimmer of hope could be just enough to remember there’s actually just as much love and strength around us as there is evil.

Perhaps the reason people endure excruciating pain, is because it helps open our eyes to other invaluable treasures that exist around us….blessings in our lives we’ve been taking for granted without noticing.

It’s hard not to get swallowed up by unjustified wrongs, when sadness is completely warranted. But we can always try our best to paint a silver lining around broken hearts. Right now I just feel like life, love and joy are worth everything, even if times are tough.
