I can do hard things.

Today, I ran under a waterfall.

I didn't want to, because I didn't want to get wet.

But really,
I wanted to.

I have two friends named Angela & Amy.

They did it, and they told me how much fun it was.

I said no,
and I said no,
until I remembered

that running under waterfalls is how you learn to do hard things.

I have hard things to do in life.

And little victories,
like running under a waterfall,
are warm-ups for the big moments.

Sometimes all it takes is twenty seconds of insane courage.

"Life is either a daring adventure
or nothing."
Helen Keller
