Today is moving day for my little family of three. Due to moving so quickly and barely finding a place to live in the time we had, I have come to consider myself practically a world-class athlete, renowned cook, or famous musician. Not because I am any one of these, but because it makes this whole moving thing easier. I’m starting to realize, it is when I own up to the fact that I am doing something hard, that the task becomes easier.
So, today while our home is in shambles, covered in boxes, in transition, and my memories are being packed in identical brown boxes, I’ve decided I’m going to look in the mirror and say:
“I ROCK! I’m doing a hard thing, but I am going to rock it.”
We all can do that on our hard days–the days we dread when we look at the calendar. We can do it on the days that unexpectedly become hard too. Hard things are not easy, but we can find strength in it.
“A man of character finds a special attractiveness in difficulty, since it is only by coming to grips with difficulty that he can realize his potentialities.”- Charles de Gaulle
How do you find strength to do hard things?
