My day has officially been enlightened! This just made my day. I remember reading this quote from somewhere when I was about 13. I had no real understanding of it then, but I sure knew I liked what it said.
Today in the middle of my busy day, I decided to Google search some ‘pick-me-up’ quotes to get me to want to continue this academic race. There it was! Waiting for me to rediscover it.
Reading this makes me feel like I have finally come home like the Prodigal Son, who had lost his way. This is me right now with all the academic pressures I’m facing, so reading this has allowed me to come back to my senses and centre myself.
Compared to the 13 year old girl, I now understand what this quote is telling me. I am destined for greatness but I am my own worst enemy. I hide behind fear, like most humans do, and opportunity and time pass me by. No more!
