Doing things that are hard can make a day a good one.
I remember my first two-wheeler. It was red with a long, silver banana seat. It had solid, rubber tires and it felt huge. I loved that bike and it scared the hell out of me. At some point my father decided that I didn't need training wheels and we spent "quality time" together with him pushing me, and me falling. Over and over again. Then . . again.
Much later, something magical happened. I kept my balance and rode. I've never stopped riding and loving the feeling of riding.
I'm a husband. I'm a father.
Think of something you wanted to do . . . but couldn't. Think of something that was hard . . but worth doing.
Focus for a minute on how you felt when you did that thing. Hold it in your mind and remember how it felt.
That feeling; those thoughts made that moment part of a good day.
Are you doing anything hard in your life right now? Is there something you should or could be doing?
Don't rob yourself of the opportunity of making today a good day by not doing anything.
Try to do something hard.
Make today a good day.
