Positive self talk to make it all ok! #surviving these long #gradschool days. Yes, I chose to, & keep choosing to, because it is worth it. Not all days will be so long, or all weeks so challenging. Attempting Motherhood/Career/Doctorate/life balance.. at least I'm smiling still!! And sunglasses hide the tired eyes! Lol!!

When everyone's standard is to be self-centered and direct/cruel/etc, being kind can make a huge difference. You never know what someone is going through silently or the burden they feel.. #humanKINDness #bethechange #kind
