SO, I just finished taking my last final of the semester. While I am glad it's over (mostly because I want to go home and visit my mom), I can't help but feel grateful for the amazing semester I just had! Sure there was a lot of studying and working hard but I am so proud of myself for everything that I accomplished.
Sometimes when the going gets tough, I tend to shrink back into my shell but not this semester! I became a leader in both my student organizations, I mentored so many young girls, I've applied to study abroad and scholarships (which I'm still waiting to hear back from, so keep your fingers crossed!) and so far I have honor roll in my classes.
Remember, there are definitely going to be times where you want to give up and throw in the towel. Sometimes you're going to be negative and not appreciate all the little blessings you have in your life and hey, that's OKAY! Just remember that back into that ring is what matters.
You can do it and you can do even matter next year!
Keep that in mind over the holiday break. Make a mental list of what you want to accomplish and even if you don't get through all of them, jus dreaming is such a wonderful thing to do.
Despite the hardships (or imagined hardships) it's ALL WORTH IT IN THE END!
