Fight Hard

Things are getting down to the wire here at school. I am about to finish my last regular coursework as a graduate student and begin reading in earnest for my candidacy exams. I have a bajillion books still to read this term and two major papers. And just thinking about all of it makes my heart race. I'm not going to lie and say I'm not freaking out on the inside. Because I am. For sure.

But it's always amazing to me what I actually do accomplish when I simply say, "Well, this has to be done. So it will be done."

This time I've given myself a battle cry to get through the next couple of weeks. I've been saying it to myself all morning.


Because I do really, really want my PhD. So this is me, squaring my shoulders and digging deep.

Today I just want to encourage you to FIGHT HARD for what you really, really want.

Do you have a battle cry to get you through times of overload and stress?

love, elizabeth

Wish I did have a battle cry -- it's a pretty great idea! Good luck with your exams. After being the support system for my husband during his 5.5 years of grad school to get his doctorate, I totally get how you're feeling right now!

No, but I wish I did! That's a great idea with finals around them corner? We all need one.

Thanks for posting that quote....I needed that reminder. I have to fight hard, really hard, for what I want. And it's worth it.

Best of luck with you accomplishing all that you're fighting for too. <3

Good luck! I hope all goes well. I don't have a battle cry but my favourite words in the world, pity I don't remember the author, are "We are not where we want to be but we are not where we were." Just acknowledges the strides taken and progress made and reminds me there's still a long ass road ahead.

Love from Jo'burg
