Just like when preparing to run a 10K, this journey of learning we are on requires diligent training. The race can be tiresome and seem long sometimes. Our muscles of motivation can grow weary; there is no one-size-fits-all road map on how to navigate through the unexpected curves. Life happens, there are some grades we may not be proud of, projects we wish we had spent more time completing. Our legs are tired, we are thirsty for rest and then remember we have studied hard, we have remained engaged, and we are motivated because we believe our efforts are leading to something better. These are our training tools and they have prepared us for the challenges of the race.
The end of the semester is close and as the finish line comes into view, we will listen to the whisper inside that says, “Trust the training.”
