“Wake up early, Drink coffee, Work hard. Be ambitious. Keep your priorities straight, your mind right and head straight. Do well, live well, and dress really well. Do what you love, love what do. It is time to start living.”
Inspirational quotes. What else does a girl need? This quote encapsulates everything I wanted to say. As I reflect to the many many sleepless nights and endless cups of refill coffee (trust me, little stress- ball me needs a constant reminder to breathe and chill out) Sometimes I feel that my Law Degree is also know as the Most Determined. Yes,😀 The Odds are in my favor.
“I am just striving to be more than I have ever been.” This is my motto as I head back to campus. Everyday is an opportunity to improve, to be beter, to be stronger than I ever was. For me, I will become the very best version of myself. I am going to study harder than I had to. I am going to be more passionate about Law than I ever thought I was. Amidst all that, I am going to love myself and be more conscious of life’s little moments.
So friends, don’t get caught up in beating yourself up when things don’t work out the way you want them to. Take every opportunity to grow and prepare for success. Dont be afraid to grab new opportunities and take a leap of faith. Life is too big to stay in your comfort zone and fear the unknown. There are reasons why things happen and we cannot see. It just takes a lot of patience and faith in yourself as well as the timing of your goals. You may take a slight detour on your way to your goals, but you will gain some valuable life experiences on the way. You may feel like you don’t have what it takes to make it to the end. But GOD sees your unwavering faith. He answers prayers. He will take you where you are meant to be and in time you will learn to push yourself a little harder, and trust in your abilities a little stronger.
My point is wherever you are in your career endeavours, you are going to be discouraged and overwhelmed at some time. Instead of making excuses, face these disappointments, overcome your fears, and keep going at it with all that you’re got. There will always be moments of self-doubt, anxiety, and disappointments in our lives amongst the moments of confidence, positivity and success. It takes a lot of time and work to become appreciative of the person you have become.
Here’s to us, the never-giver-uppers, the doers, the dreamers, the believers and stereotype-breaking baddies. You are brave for pursuing this challenging world of Law. You are fearless in fighting your dreams. You are bold in going out of your comfort zone. Finally you are strong for holding it all together and believing in yourself.
Blessings and Love….
