Are you being polished by life?

I subscribe to the Quote of the Day e-mail from All About Gratitude. Most of them are pretty good, but this one recently really struck me:

“The diamond cannot be polished without friction, nor the man perfected without trials.”
~ Chinese Proverb

I love a blog about gratitude reminding me that life’s trials aren’t to be avoided but a path to learning and growing — something to give thanks for.

I wrote a post like that called Life’s Messy and That’s OK, giving thanks for the imperfection of life.

What’s helped polish you? Or what’s polishing you now?
