I heard a talk recently. I wish I could remember exactly which meeting, but I can't. However, a man was telling a story about hiking with his daughter. Somewhere along the hike, she got tired and frustrated. He told her, "You can do hard things."
At girl's camp last week, I heard it several times (leading me to believe it was at our Stake Conference, but maybe it was General Conference). I even said it myself a couple of times. Sometimes in sincerity, and once a little tongue in cheek (when one of the busses broke down and a girl was complaining about riding for about a half-hour with four and five girls to a seat on the other bus).
However, this morning, when I was feeling a little overwhelmed by my new job and all it entails, the thought came to mind, "I can do hard things." So, I perked up, kicked my butt a little, made my list, and got to work doing what must be done.
You Can Do Hard Things.
