Does it Have to be Hard?

Hi all,

Happy humpday! A coworker of mine says that often on Wednesdays to make callers laugh. She’s quite adorable, really.

Anywho, it’s been humid and hot. Not even the plants like it. They are mostly still ok, but it needs to rain soon. The ground is hard and dry. I love the weather, even if it doesn’t always seem like it haha! My beans were much bigger when I looked yesterday, so hopefully they will reach the fence I put up for them soon and cover it. I trellised the rows for beans, tomatoes and cucumbers. I might be able to sneak a pepper or two as well.

Well, enough side tracking, why does this post have that title? Because someone recently posed the question to me. So, I posed it myself. Does it have to be hard? My adamant answer is no.

My journey hasn’t been hard up to now and when I was doing this a decade ago it wasn’t hard then either. There were frustrating patches in the journey, but the journey itself wasn’t what I would consider hard. I don’t think we should think of most things as hard. That puts walls in our path.

The journey is just the journey. It will go as it goes. I can try to lead or follow but I can’t force anything to happen that shouldn’t. I can, though, halt progress with self sabotage. So, does it have to be hard? Only if we choose it to be hard. Life is life. It’s not always going to be easy. But it doesn’t have to be hard if I just let go and live it.

Keep it going,
