You Can Do Hard Things!

hard but do it

Life is hard sometimes. There isn't much too it other than that. Sometimes you are asked to do hard things, other times hard things seem just thrown at you without warning. It's tough and uncomfortable but there is an upside, it is, that you can handle it.

I don't know about you guys but sometimes it seems like the hard won't stop coming, and I've come to the conclusion that it probably won't. It will just keep throwing itself at me. It's the time of year that comes with a lot of change, scary change for some.

If it helps, know that somebody believes in you. I believe in you. This guy believes in you too.

Now what you need is to believe in yourself. Here's a reminder if you need.

Birthstone of the Month: August

I always felt a little bad for people whose birthdays are in August, or more so their parents. It leaves all kinds of things up in the air like when to start school. It would stress me out as a parent. This year though I'm having a baby this month. There is a bright spot, the birthstone for August is bright, happy peridot.


Peridot is one of only a few gems that only come in one color. For peridot that color is green. The green tones can range from yellow-ish to browni-ish tinted but will always be distinguishable as green. I love the most common colored ones; a light, bright green.

One of the things I love best about the peridot is to know where it comes from. They are made from minerals that are found in magma that comes to the surface of the earth from volcanoes. Among other places it is mined in Hawaii, Arizona, and New Mexico. Another source of peridots is meteorites.

The bright color of peridot is great for summer, which makes it fitting for August birthstone. It is also nice to wear because the color doesn't change when brought from sunlight to artificial light. The same pretty green will still show no matter the setting or situation. It can easily pair with other stones on a personalized necklace.
