• Summary

  • I’m Glennon Doyle, author of Untamed – the book that was released at the very start of the pandemic and became a lifeline for millions. I watched in awe from my home while this simple phrase from Untamed – WE CAN DO HARD THINGS – the mantra that saved my life twenty years ago, became a worldwide rally cry. Because we experienced the hardship of the pandemic collectively, many of us finally acknowledged what was true before COVID and will be true after: That life is freaking HARD. We are all doing hard things every single day – things like loving and losing caring for children and parents; forging and ending friendships; battling addiction, illness, and loneliness; struggling in our jobs, our marriages, and our divorces; setting boundaries; and fighting for equality, purpose, freedom, joy, and peace. On We Can Do Hard Things, my sister Amanda and I will do the only thing I’ve found that has ever made life easier: We will drop the fake and talk honestly about the hard. Each week we will bring our hard to you and we will ask you to bring your hard to us and we will do what we were all meant to do down here: Help each other carry the hard so we can all live a little bit lighter and braver, more free and less alone.

Thanks for the reminder on having fun!

I LOVE Glennon, Sister, & Abby! This podcast is AMAZING . I look forward to it every week and listen while I work ( cleaning homes). I certainly need a reminder in my life to have fun. I have a constant to do list and my free time consists of doing those things. I do have an idea what fun is to me though. I love reading, going to the ocean, exercise, walking, doing anything with my kids, wife, and pets. I love gardening, traveling ( which I rarely do because I'm always working and doing chores!). My wife would probably tell me I have trouble having fun. I'm going to work on that!

Well timed message

I will be re- listening to the boundaries session!! From understanding what it means to set boundaries to realizing what and who I am responsible for. These are all things I have struggled with as an empath/sensitive and it was a much needed eye opener. Thank you Glennon and your sister for opening up this dialogue and sharing I have a newfound and much needed appreciation for boundaries. Michele

glennon's voice is so soothing to listen to. the way she describes her anxiety attack is very relatable. her experience with coping was helpful. i found the entire podcast engaging. there is also the bonus of a great song by tish.
