It’s not so much that life is hard. It’s more that when the time comes to do something hard, we don’t shy away from it. We stand up and do the hard thing. We can pretty much count on something hard to do every single day.
Knowing this, we need to stand ready for that hard moment, otherwise we might miss the chance. Sometimes we need our heart to open. Sometimes we need to step forward with our sword. Sometimes we must simply hold steady. Sometimes, it’s put head down and work. Sometimes it requires us to truly listen and intuit because we can be guided by a fire somewhere bright and energising. And sometimes it is simply to stay aligned to our purpose.
Today at least, I’m ready for the hard moments.
