I crossed another win in my marathon game of finishing a doctorate degree. My HARDEST yes HARDEST paper I have written to date finally became a FIRST draft! Now I will take a break from it tomorrow, I will rest, recoup and take an exam. The positive of this step is that I did not struggle as much as I thought I would. I sat down BEFORE I started writing and got organized. Thank you to all my teachers, mentors, professors etc. that taught me the value of organizing first! When I had pages of notes to follow….the words and sources flowed. I credit the success to all the encouragement of my blog followers, twitter followers, and my friends. The little notes here and there, the comments of encouragement..this is done because of all of you! THANK YOU!
Today I hurt so bad…I wanted to quit so bad. My legs, my hands, my hips, my knees…everything felt broken and my mind stressed. I stopped and went and got a manicure/pedicure. As my feet were being massaged and as hot wax helped relieve some of the pain. I felt rejuvenated. My husband and I went out for dinner and then ice-cream…and I got back home ready to attack the remaining three pages.
I needed 12 pages and I have about 12.5 pages. This gives me something to edit, add/subtract as I round my paper into something I want to turn in on Wednesday! Thankfully though the hardest part is done! 🙂
On to the next step, on to facing the remainder of this journey! On to becoming a doctor 🙂
