The other day I ran across a comment on Facebook where someone said something empowering and followed it up with, “But, that’s easier said than done!” I had a physical reaction when I read it. Now, granted I’ve read and even said that line myself many, many times, but for some reason it struck me.
About an hour later I saw it AGAIN. I knew the Universe was speaking, so I listened. It thought about how I truly felt about that statement, and how in the world could I write an entire blog post about it? But, yes. Yes, I could.
Here’s my response today about, “It’s easier said than done”: NO FUCKING SHIT. That is the most obvious statement that has ever come out of my mouth and I vow to you and Jesus that I will never say it to anyone again. It always seems to follow up a piece of wisdom or advice about life or healing or moving forward. So, here’s a news flash: LIFE IS HARD. HEALING HURTS. MOVING FORWARD IS SCARY.
So we can talk and talk and talk about what we want to do with our life. We can complain about anything and everything but when it comes to real life changes……well, that’s easier said than done.
Well, I call bullshit. No more cop-outs. EVERYTHING is easier said than done. Words are meaningless unless they are backed up with action, EVERYONE knows that. I know one thing to be true: a fulfilled, happy, amazing, kick-ass life takes WORK. Work on yourself, work on your past, work on your issues, work on your addictions, because if it were easy, in my humble opinion, there would be way less shit wrong with the world than there is now.
But, instead, people sit and talk and blow smoke out their asses and complain that they’re not happy because of so-and-so. And to change or work on themselves is easier said than done. Whatever.
There is so much help out there. Free help! And yes, I'm a life coach and I help people, but seriously, self-help books HELP people. Online support groups, face-to-face support groups are FREE and everywhere. And there are therapists, and coaches, and gurus and on and on to help you with your shit. There is not one single person I know that has an amazing life that somewhere hasn't taken hard action and worked on themselves. A LOT. And none of them will tell you that it was easy, nor did it look like a tampon commercial.
You are the most precious thing you’ve got. You are priceless and worth all the work in the world to make you happy and fulfilled. This life you have is short. Live, love and learn on your terms.
