Not Easy, Worth it


It’s taken many years and a lot of internal reflection to finally accept the idea that the harder I have to work for something, the more rewarding it will be.

To be honest, I’d rather things be easy.  Struggle makes me tired and crabby.  Sometimes there are tears.

But when I look back on the things I am most proud of today, I realize they are the things I had to work for the hardest.

What’s your struggle right now?  What’s happening in your life that makes you want to pull all your hair out?

Hang in there.  One day you’ll look back and think to yourself, “It was worth it.”
