I Can Do Hard Things

I don't normally just write posts to vent, brag, or just cause. Most of my posts are topics that have been on my mind, or updates on my life. But today I just had to write this out because it feels so good.

Just a quick disclaimer, I in no way think that I have "arrived". I know I have a long way to go but it just feels so good to have gotten as far as I have.

Okay, now I'm back. In January I wrote about my New Years "resolutions" here. Guys I think I'm actually doing them. I've been working so hard the past few weeks to do these things and man I think I am.

No, I'm not even close to 100% there. The list I made is a life long journey. But as we are approaching February it feels so good to be able to say I haven't given up and that I can feel the growth.

It feels so good to feel growth occur. I can't tell you how many moments I've wanted to just give up, and break down. Actually, I did break down once. But I used it as a turning point. But each time I've almost given up but didn't I've felt myself get stronger.

Guys life is so hard. Just when you think you've got something figured out, something else happens. But at the same time life is so beautiful. The ability we are given through Christ to change and become stronger is amazing. I find myself getting better at things I never thought I could, and I know it is because I'm not doing it alone.

And it isn't just my soul, my spirit, that is getting stronger. So is my body. I've had a few bad headaches the past few weeks. Nothing out of the ordinary for me. But I haven't even had to take anything for them because it is getting easier each day to push through them. Not to mention I've started running again and I've been able to push myself harder then ever.

Life is amazing! And I know I only feel that way because I'm doing it along side my best friend who is Christ. Through Him I can do hard things. I finally believe it, because I'm finally seeing myself really grow.
Ocean crashing against rocks

So don't give up. If I can grow and become stronger, anyone can. Just keep trucking along and even though you don't feel like any growth is occurring I promise it is. Just keep going and you'll look back one day and see it. You'll be so glad you didn't give up.

You can do hard things!

    1. It is so funny how we avoid doing hard things, but turns out just like you said, life is so much better when you do!

  2. I love to read inspiring posts first thing in the morning. Thank you for this Sierra! The words going through my head since I woke up have been "I've decided to use my powers for good today" (which is how I work everyday, any way ;-> ) Looking back over this week I had to do some tasks that I've been putting off but hey, I finally did them and I am relieved!

    Happy #NYNB!

  7. This has been my mantra for the past 4 months (which ironically was the same time my baby was born. Hmm...) and after reading your blog a bit, I really think you can pull off whatever you set your mind to! You're awesome! :)
