do you remember what you're fighting for? do you remember who you're fighting for?
these are the thoughts that kept me up the past few nights and shook me because lately, i've found myself forgetting this. sometimes when we're pushing towards a goal, our view just narrows. we get caught up. we have an endpoint, so we sprint to it and we don't waste a second looking around or savoring the process. my type a tendencies drives this - but it's exhausting. It's unsustainable. its unfulfilling. it feels hopeless.
yes, studying for exams isn't and shouldn't be rainbows and daisies, but forgetting what fuels you can make it pretty damn miserable.
so today I hope you remind yourself what you're working for and trust the process when it gets hard. I hope you work hard today, but I hope you push harder to do something kind too. not because you want gratification but because helping others should be part of our daily routine. try to not lose sight of your bigger dream while trying to achieve the smaller mountains.
