So often, I want to avoid the hard things. That's the natural state for most of us. I crave comfort, I arrange my life around the ways that keep me ensconced in my normal and seek the path of least resistance most of the time. Difficulty is rarely something we seek.
I can think of so many hard things that I have faced that were necessary to reach a goal. Exercise, infertility treatments, moves, discipline, saving, staying the course, education, counseling and more are not passive, easy endeavors. Yet the rewards make the effort so worth it!
Whatever you are facing today, don't shy away if it is hard. Lean into the challenge and do the necessary work for growth. You are worth the effort. What hard thing are you facing today? Hearing from readers makes writing so much more fun and I'd love to hear from you!
