Wednesday Wisdom: Believe, Patient, Don’t Give Up

 

Our wisdom for the week is based off an image I saw in my facebook thread last week.  It is amazing how many inspirational/motivational images I see in one day 🙂  I am pretty sure I need to start clarifying who says them so others can properly reference…

Even though our family (me and the girls) have rough moments I know that I can persevere and soon cross the finish line of doctoral school.  I realize it has taken me time to focus on this part of my education, but I wouldn’t trade that time for anything for I am enjoying motherhood and all the experiences that come with it.

What dreams/goals have you pushed the pause button on?  Take time, revive your belief, and persist for that achievement is closer than you think!
