It's The Hard That Makes It Great

Let's face it, sometimes life can be pretty hard... at certain times more than others. 

 

And when the going gets tough, it's all too easy to say to yourself, "F-it. This is too hard. I'm over it." 

 

Sometimes, it's a struggle because it's not right for you. 

And sometimes, it's the struggle that causes the biggest breakthroughs!

 

As much as you want your life to be like a vacation every day (and I'm no exception!), without the stress, you wouldn't grow and discover what you're capable of.

 

To quote Jimmy Dugan (aka Tom Hanks) from A League Of Their Own,

"It's supposed to be hard. If it wasn't hard, everyone would do it. The hard, is what makes it great." 

 

It's the hard that teaches you how to overcome obstacles. 

It's the hard that gives you a sense of accomplishment. 

It's the hard that lets you know you can handle anything. 

 

Without the hard, you'd have no sense of confidence, resilience or perseverance. 

 

So you see, some of your best qualities are a result of your struggles! 

 

So the next time you hear yourself saying, "Ugh, this sucks, it's so hard, I don't want to do this", let yourself feel the pain and struggle of the hard. BE with it just as it is. 

 

And then remember Jimmy Dugan... "It's the hard that makes it great." 

 

And once you've fully felt the frustration and annoyance of the "hard", ask yourself, "What am I gaining from this?" 

 

Is it patience?

Compassion?

Perseverance?

Resilience?

 

At the end of the day, many of your best qualities come from the hard. 

 

Embrace the hard, and you will find peace on the other side. 

Resist the hard, and it will persist.

Seek the hard, and your life just may feel a little freer.
