Some days are easy. Some days are not. Sunday was one of those not so good days. Although I had started working on a paper that was due Monday days before, I still had a lot to do to finish it. I worked on it for two hours on the car drive to my grandma’s funeral, the two hours on the way back, and then till 5am in the morning. It definately was not something I wanted to do at that particular time, but that is the way life happens sometimes. Death comes at its own appointed time, regardless of our schedule or desires.
I share this to encourage you to fight through the hard times and finish the race. Graduation seems so far away, but it is just around the corner. Keep your head up and your eyes on the finish line. We have all come too far to let anything stand in our way. So jump over whatever hurdles come your way with confidence. As for my grandma, I know she would have been very happy to see me graduate. And that gives me motivation to continue and to do my very best. Keep shining everyone!
