Easy Does It – Day 3
October 11, 2017
“Why does doing this have to be so hard?” I asked a friend one day.
“It doesn’t,” he said.
Challenge: Unquestionably, life can be tough and challenging at times. It hurts. It can be scary and confusing. Many of us have had to garner great amounts of strength and courage to face difficult situations. There are times when endurance and rising to the occasion are important survival skills. It’s equally important to know when an easy-does-it approach is enough.
