It’s Not So Hard


Life. What’s so hard?

The woman who hasn’t slept all night because her husband is absent.

The new mum who’s awake at 4am because her baby won’t settle.

The over-worked business man whose alarm sounds at 3am each Monday for an interstate flight, leaving his family behind.

The tired bar tender who has served a pitiful drunk until 2am.

The conscious student nervously studying at 1am for tomorrow’s exam.

It’s hard, isn’t it?

Then on the 6pm news bulletin you’re transported to the world’s communism, conflict, and extreme poverty.

Boat people who have lost their children at sea, trying to escape their war-torn country.

And your life doesn’t seem so hard after all.

Hardship. Love. Poverty. War. Tragedy. Anxiety. Life itself.

It’s all relative.

Your hardship is just as worthy as the next person’s.

Feel it in your being! Accept it in your heart. Express it through your words and actions and let it go.

Life itself is influenced by the individual’s interpretation of what’s hard, and what’s not so.
