“The gem cannot be polished without friction, nor man perfected without trials.” – Confucius


Life isn’t easy. That’s probably one of the simplest, most accepted statements in the history of existence. Our lives aren’t easy, everything doesn’t go right, and plans change because of things out of our control. These times where everything feels wrong, where our lives seem to be moving into a downward spiral, are the moments when our greatest strengthening comes about. Like fire and heat colliding with a mineral to create the beautiful materials we in so many different ways, our lives are impacted by situations that create friction in our peace and normalized way of life.

Without the friction and trials of life, we never improve. We never grow as people or as a society without complications. To understand and strive to be the best people possible, we have to survive the problems of life that could bring you to the brink of destruction. Making it through those rigors, you will walk away shining and stronger like the gorgeous mineral that bloomed from intense heat and friction.
