“To take up the cross of Christ is no great action done once for all; it consists in the continual practice of small duties which are distasteful to us.” John Henry Newman 1801-1890

Often, the “hard things” of “do hard things” are simply the small tasks and the unseen kindnesses that do not draw us as a magnet.
